‘For Foot Sake’ saga continues!…

Other than renewing my medication, that trip to the GP today was a complete waste of time! Just as it was 2 weeks ago! 

All praise to the NHS, but seriously! 😡
So the ‘For foot sake’ saga continues… GP (not my usual – neither was it today) wrote a letter 2 weeks ago to Rheumatology to expedite my appointment for my foot/back results that I have on 10th November (doesn’t seem far away but believe me, it did back in August!) He sent the letter, to no avail! I’ve been calling every day and not a single cancellation! 

I totally get it, there are others in the same situation as me, but, come on! 

Staying true to myself!

This past 18 months, I have been working really hard, on becoming my true authentic self. 
I am so much happier in my life now, except when it comes to handling my chronic pain levels!
I don’t like to be truthful about this part of me because I don’t want people to ever think I am after a pity party, I’m not! 

I don’t want people to be sad for me! 


But how can I be authentic if this is a part of me that I don’t share completely! 

So here goes… I have quite honestly never felt pain like this coming from my sacroiliac joint, hips, spine, legs, piriformis muscle and my feet! 

Tonight I broke! I couldn’t stop the tears! 

I am quiet certain this isn’t MS, maybe it is part of my fibromyalgia, maybe its just an old injury that’s never been looked into properly? 

Just like in my health coaching programme I did, maybe this is somewhere that has never been approached completely?
In yoga, they say we hold alot of our emotion in different areas of our bodies. Ok, some of you must have heard of stress being held in your shoulders? Well, that’s exactly what I’m talking about! 

What if the manifestation of chronic pain is  being caused by an unresolved emotional issue?

It has been said that there is a distinct connection between emotions and injuries.

A fall from being pushed in a malicious way will manifest in the body differently than a fall from an accidental trip on a very peaceful, carefree day.
Doesn’t that make you think! 

What ever it is, I’d like it fixed & my life back now… Pain free!

Happiness is…

A moment in the garden tidying & now were both walking like 90 year olds! 

Thought I’d have a bath to ease my aches and pains, forgot just how much the heat and humidity effects my MS! 

It was more like bathing in cement when I tried to move! 
Sooooooo, PJs are on! Hot water bottle on our backs & a takeaway ordered! 

All about balance!

+jLooking good girly!

Had a really good short weights & yoga home workout today, but the pain is so real! 
Trying so hard to focus on the present and not the past! 

This journey is for now, I wasn’t ready to be on it years ago!
Positive note: when I watched the video back for the first time in a long time, I thought to myself “damn, you look GOOD!” 

Yasss! Health coach high! 💚

My agony weekend *Saturday*

Yoga 1-1 cancelled! Sleep to catch up on! 

Slept well into lunch time!…
Well, I not only made it from the bed to the sofa, but I made a smoothie in between! 
At least this isn’t causing me any pain yet! 

The first little bit of goodness inside me since 6am yesterday! That’s excluding the jelly I managed to eat with no pain! 😉
Hard to believe that MS can cause so much havoc to the body! 
I shall be resting now, need to be in optimum condition in preparation for my birthday weekend that starts on Thursday! 🎉

Picture is my own, as are the words used!
