Pain and clutter
I had a hard week. It started out with a bad pain in my left shoulder and numbness in my left arm and hand. I went to the doctor and was sent to hospital for an X-ray and an MRI. I have a whole bunch of pills to take but I'm still not feeling so much better. I am afraid it's a hernia. It seems like every muscle in my back aches. When the situation is not going to improve during the weekend, I'll have to go back to the doctor on Monday. Lying down hurts more than sitting or standing so I have tried to keep myself busy and not think about it too much. I thought decluttering the house would be a good distraction and I filled one bag after the other with paper, broken and incomplete toys and other stuff I didn't need anymore. My husband brought it to the recycle centre this morning and at least that made me feel a little bit better!
