Tuesday 10th to Wednesday 11th May

So I woke up this morning feeling pretty dreadful. I thought I might be like this after my very busy few days. I was still very tired and my whole body was aching. And I had to go to work … 😏

As soon as I arrived I was asked if I wanted to work later today and as I always do I just agreed. But after I had been on my till for only a few minutes I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do it today so I told myself I shouldn’t be silly and I let them know that I just wouldn’t be able to do it 😠 

I found it very hard to concentrate at first, I think as my body was struggling and my head was definitely in a completely different place, as this was my first time back after a very busy few days.

I could also feel my stitches pulling as obviously my arm was getting a lot of constant use, for the first time since I’ve had them put in really.

It was a difficult shift to get through πŸ˜–

When I got back in the afternoon I basically just collapsed on the sofa!!! I kept resting my head back and closing my eyes and almost falling asleep but then I would make myself sit up straight again! I don’t think I was very productive at all for the rest of the day.

Wednesday, I still wasn’t feeling any better and had yet another shift at work to get through :/ 

It is great being able to do things and get out and about again. Before my transplants when I was suffering with ascites, I couldn’t even sit up without being in terrible pain and this time last year I was still very weak and unsteady on my feet, there is no way I would have been able to even contemplate doing any of what I have done over the last few days. So my life HAS improved in so many ways. It just seems to be that my body still takes a bit of a bashing and it takes me a little while longer to recover if I am active for long periods of time. And – let’s not forget, I’m pretty old now too πŸ‘΅

Yes I AM tired. But even despite that I’m not sleeping very well. Doesn’t make sense does it? Too much going on in my head I expect.

And just to keep you up to date with things, I still have the wart and it’s a week later now. It obviously has decided it’s going to be a very stubborn little thing ☹️
