Inflammation and resting

 Did I share this with you before? It's the magazine with the article that was the outcome of the interview at the Postcode lottery.

This weekend has been quite calm not because I wanted to but I had to.

Let me begin from the beginning. Last week all activities started again like the Rheumatic association and we started with a budget meeting which I lead. Then we had working committe meeting and after that (but really the whole day) I was so tired and also in much pain.

So the next day I could hardly sit, walk, lie down or do nothing. Of course inflammation again in the joints of the pelvis. It's very painful, I get a kind of flu feeling. You know when you feel like you have a temperature, you are freezing and you are shivering and feel kind of sick and with bad pain in your joints. That's how I feel when I get these inflammations and it makes me, whether I want it or not, take it easy.

I had been looking forward to Sunday (yesterday) when I and my opera friend should have gone to the Royal castle in Stockholm and in the Crown hall watched an opera - Norma. I did already on Saturday realize that it was possible I wouldn't be able to go. I mean to sit on a bench for 3 hours with that pain had been insane. So we had to cancel it :-( and I'm so sad about that.

Today I have been working but still in pain. I'm on painkillers (not any strong ones) and they do their work for a couple of hours and then it starts again. OK, that's it. I'm done moaning now ;-) But wasn't I a good girl Jo resting when I needed to?

This week is also quite good. I work of course and there are a lot to do this time of the year. I only have one meeting planned on Saturday and nothing more planned for the weekend so I will be able to rest this weekend as well and hopefully I will be better after that.

I hope you are all doing good and are in good health.
Take care and have a wonderful week.
