pain' for my pain

well,as  you may expect        i am in agony   lol       i finished the course of steroids  monday,and  whether  my body misses them i'm not sure          but  i have been in  really bad pain  last 2 days.        i did manage to repair  my garden bench yesterday,  after  all the exertions in the pond i sort of flopped down  a bit  too hard                it broke  lol      2 slats rotted through.         so  that is done       and  also cut all the grass          but  i do realise  i must pace  myself a bit better, but if i feel ok        or at least  better than i sometimes feel, i do as much as i possibly can,       no telling what  tomorrow will bring.

mum has been in bed for ages          went at 9.30,she has got a filthy cold into her,no idea where she caught it from,but  she really is sniffling.          i am pleased with her toe,  i dress it every morning,  and it looks a lot better now.       the gout  seems to be here to stay,and continues to really  pain her.   anyway,  i think it is my bedtime,  take care all

You must really try and rest Mort, yes I know it's not easy but try and rest in between days, when your going to do heavy work, sorry to read your mum's got a cold, it is going around, glad her toe is much better, give her my regards and wishing her a speedy recovery.

Take care

You try to do to much Mort.  You must rest more and learn to let some things go.  Your J-land friends worry about you my friend.  Glad you mum's toe is better.
Hugs, Joyce

You keep going and going and going.  Hope the best for you and your Mum's health.  Hope the pain lessens.  Would be great if something radical could be done for gout.  Take care.  ............  jack

Oh Dear Morton,  I did think that you were doing just to much this last week or two.  I know that you liek to be..... doing..... but you really have to pace yourself.  I know just what that means but I am getting better at it.  For instance thei week  Iactually hoovered the sitting room....big deal I hear you say..but I really did hoover it well not just the middle of the floor as I usually do I took out the chairs etc. and did behing things !!  and that was me done for the day.  Anotther day I "did" my bedroom same thing...that was that days work done...If I plant up one hanging basket that is another days work done !!  so you see you have to take it easy..there is always ...hopefully..tomorrow   Love for now  Sybil x

Mort I am so sorry you are in so much pain ~ I can understand how you feel about getting everything done on the days you don't feel so bad ~ but I think you will have to start pacing yourself and resting in between all the hard work ~ (I know easier said than done) ~ I am glad your Mum's toe is healing well but sad she has caught a cold ~ hope she feels better soon ~ Ally x

Mort this is your friend in Nebraska and I am only going to say one thiing on one subject.  You must pace yourself and there may come a time when you won't know when you should have stopped.  Just be very aware of your feelings.  I do hope your mum is better. Have not seen you on aol today and am wondering if you might have had to take your mum in, to Dr.   Lucy
