Told to take a break.

Hi Folks.

As if it is not hard enough having Keith poorly, I am now joining him. After pain in my shoulder and arm for the past few weeks.  I took myself off to the doctors this morning and have been told I have Adhesive Capsulitis, which to you and me means a frozen shoulder. Mine has not frozen completely yet, but I have been told if I do not rest it for 3 weeks, it may go that way and that will mean upto 2 years of problems. So like a good girl I am going to do as I am told. I have been given some Diclofenic tablets, which are anti-inflammatories, which should sort the problem. If they don't, I will have to have a Steriod injection Ouchhhhhhhh. I do not like the sound of that. So with a heavy heart I have taken down our sale boards and have shut up shop for the 3 weeks. With Keith also going into hospital, it seems like a good idea to close up, as we do not know what is going to happen as far he is concerned. I know what has caused my shoulder problems. It has been the extra work over the winter with the coal, because I have done all of the hauling of the coal. This not normally a problem, but obviously for some reason my shoulder has said ok, enough is enough.

I sat in the surgery waiting room at 9.20am this morning and just watched what was happening around me. On the wall there is a huge sign which reads. Please Switch Off Your Mobile Phone. Now either some people are blind or they are really stupid, because two people were talking on their phones in the waiting room. Also there was a young mother with her daughter, sat a few seats away from us. The mother was listening to her ipod with her feet up on the seat, whilst her daughter played on her Nintendo DS. Surely she should have been setting a good example to her daughter, by keeping her feet on the floor. After all someone else has to sit on her seat after she has left. Where are peoples manners? As I have said before, I am a terrible people watcher.

I am not into celeb gossip as such, but could not help but read this. Linda Nolan actually considered suicide, when she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2006. Linda had a breast removed and due to her treatment, went to a very dark place in her life. Thankfully she came through her treatment and is well now. Unfortunately her sister Bernie has now been diagnosed with Breast Cancer as well. Reading this really made me think about how important it is to check my breasts at least once a month. You can never be to careful. I wish Bernie lots of luck with her treatment.
