My anxiety was bad this morning but I made myself go swimming and was ok when I got there. On my way out of the changing rooms afterwards I slipped and took a right fall. Hurt my knee and hip. Had to get my daughter to pick me up and spent some of the afternoon in A and E. X rays ok just badly bruised made worse because of my blood thinning medication. All the aches and pains are coming out now though. Just started my anti depressants 3 days ago after talking to the doctor about my anxiety getting worse. Every time I want to make some progress something happens to keep me down. Feeling sorry for myself
Hope your are OK Barbara. Glad nothing broken only your pride. You have every right to feel sorry for yourself we have all gone through the worst thing that anyone can go through. I had a bad day yesterday and I to felt sorry for myself it’s normal to feel like this . Just rest your leg I expect you’ll have a big bruise tomorrow take care sending a big hug x
Thank you. Just seems to be one thing after another and everything seems worse when you are feeling low anyway. Yes there will a few bruises appearing xx
Bless you Barbara. So glad you went swimming though, but sorry you’ve hurt yourself.
Swimming is so relaxing and will do you the world of good.
Rest up, look after yourself and you will be ok again soon. As Misprint says you’ll have a bruise, but it will disappear eventually won’t it?
Thanks JaneyS. I’ve been going swimming once a week and you are right it is relaxing and it does do me good.
Full of aches and bruises but as you say I will recover.
I’m so sorry you had a fall at swimming. I go twice a week and it does give me something else to focus on. Hopefully when you get over the fall you’ll give it another go. It’s a step in the right direction. We get days don’t we when nothing seems to go right. Mine was yesterday. My son put my new lawnmower together and found a piece was broken in the box. We then dragged out other garden tools all of which were no good so we had to resort to the push lawnmower. Then four grandchildren arrived who all wanted feeding. My shopping delivery was late and when it did come it was all wrong and I had someone else’s shopping. Decided on a take away which cost me a fortune. It don’t take much to set me off but in the end I was smiling as “what else could happen” just let’s get on with it.
Hope you’re not too sore tomorrow and hope my story makes you smile
Sounds like you had a different kind of bad day and yes sometimes you do just have to laugh when everything goes wrong. I’m going through a bad spell at the moment so could have done without this fall and feeling so sore. I really enjoy my swimming been trying to go once a week and it does do you good. The staff at the leisure centre were so good looking after me xx
Hope you’re not too sore this morning. I have always swim regularly. The only time I took off was when I had my hip replaced and I was back in the pool as soon as I was able. John used to swim with me sometimes - he had shoulder surgery and it helped his rehabilitation. For me it’s just a way who pass a couple of hours and keeping fit at the same time. I ached from head to toe yesterday after the day gardening but an hour in the pool yesterday really helped.
It looks like the weather is going to be nice so take care Barbara. We have to keep going don’t we ? Nothing will take away the pain but sometimes we can do stuff that’s makes it a bit easier.
Thanks for asking.
Aching all down the side I fell on. New aches appearing as the day goes on but I suppose it was expected. Hardly done anything. My sister and brother in law came and he was going to put my ladders I had been using for the decorating back in the garage and get a garden chair out so I could sit in the garden. Trouble is I can’t find the garage keys anywhere, I had them on Thursday god knows what I’ve done with them. Honestly can’t seem to do anything right at the minute.
I enjoy my swimming find it relaxing just swimming up and down. Used to go regularly before the lockdown and mark’s illness but hadn’t been for over 2 years when I started going again late last year.
My daughter has just phoned. She is bringing one of her chairs around so at least I can sit out tomorrow.
Enjoy the sunshine while we can
Have a warm soak Barbara I do know how you feel when you say you are making some progress and then something happens to knock your confidence. I twisted my hip and it’s so painful especially trying to walk the dog. I opened the gate the other day and it fell off the hinges. They had rusted through. I have so far caught two mice and now the toilet flush is broken. It only needs something small to affect everything as we are all so emotionally on the edge x
No doubt the garage keys will turn up somewhere random they always do. Mine are usually in my dressing gown pocket. Searched high and low for the TV remote and it turned out my granddaughter had put it in her unicorn bag and taken it home !!! I just shake my head in despair sometimes and shout at John for leaving me to deal with everything. The most silly problems seem to upset me the most and the bigger stuff I just get on with.
Hope you had a nice day. I’ve been volunteering at the food bank today. It seems to be getting busier as people struggle to make ends meet.
Yes Nel you are right even the little things that go wrong seem worse than they are because we are so emotional. As you are experiencing at the moment everything seems to happen together which doesn’t help. We certainly get tested don’t we ?
Best wishes xx
We all have bad days, some of them horribly bad days. But also some only partly bad days and sometimes a reasonably good day. Try and look forward to the better times.
I’ve fallen a few times - it doesn’t ever feel good but I read somewhere that swearing does actually make you feel better and takes the pain away!
Take it easy while the bruises develop, pamper yourself and relax - and appreciate how much worse it would be if you’d broken something.
Hope you feel better soon
