Thank you for all the comments, my back is considerably better today (just as well as I now have toothache...honestly, if it's not one thing it's another. It's not too bad though and I already have a check up appointment for next month, so will wait till then).
Wherethejourneytakesme, I've never heard of Somatics...I looked it up on youtube, so it's a sort of yoga. Looks interesting, I'll have a go when I get some time to myself. Osteo and chiro are just too expensive when we have little money now, and the wait for non-urgent physio appointments is too long - by the time I got an appointment I probably wouldn't have a problem. Sorry some of you are suffering too - it's so debilitating isn't it, and pain and lack of sleep make you crotchety. Well, it does me. There's always something, isn't there, as we get older - we really take our healthy young years for granted!
There's one good thing about feeling unwell, for whatever reason, though - when you feel better it's such an enormous relief and you really feel how great it is to be alive. And our problems are minor compared to lots of other people.
I'm spending a lot of time in the kitchen today (just for a change, lol) - details on my food blog. Just sat down to have a break with a cuppa and catch up on blog reading, then start my shopping list for the weekend. I did think of a couple of things I need this morning when I got up....of course I've forgotten now what they were, I really need to have a notepad and pen on a string around my neck, I think. Duh.
Mum's very poorly again, I do feel for her. She was too unwell to talk much on Sunday, but said again she's fed up with being ill and wishes she just didn't wake up in the morning. She's still waiting for an appointment with the consultant to find out the CT scan results, everything up there just takes so long.
I've got blood tests this week, followed by an appointment next week with the diabetes nurse, to review how I'm doing on my new diabetes med I started last November. I know it's making me wee a lot! That reminds me, I'm supposed to take a week's worth of BP and blood glucose readings with me to the appointment, better start doing them today!
