Next week will be a year after I have that horrible fall in the grocery that cost me an operation and six months in bed. I am really thankful that even if I am not yet fully recovered because I can still feel some stiffness on my knee, I can walk around and feel normal again. That incident taught me a lot of things. And it also gave me my well needed rest. Now, having to look back on that accident I think God gave it to me as a way to remind me again to slow down and smell the roses. Oh yes, there are times that despite my limitations I still push myself way beyond what I can do. I always think I am normal which I am not. I have LUPUS. And even though I don’t want to accept it there are things that I really cannot do anymore. But still I am thankful.
This week I decided not to attend my swimming lessons. I got so tired walking and going around Paradizoo and Residence Inn that I know it would take me a while to recover. I feel like I have carried a lot of steel drums and the muscle pain are no joke. Also I even have rashes which until now I am trying to detect the cause. I changed my soap, I constantly apply alcohol, and stop swimming also ( just in case its the sun and the water with chlorine). But the itch still persist. So the next step will be going to the doctor for check up and advise.
