I woke up this morning, rose up out of bed.. then moaned softly, as I realized it was going to be one of those days. Both knees were swollen and inflamed from arthritis. *sighs* I had a full schedule today and now, I have to deal with this, on top of my back issues, yeah.. just wasn't the right time for more pain.
I have finally broken down and accepted the fact that using a Rollator helps my pain issues, but after today's errands, I wonder if perhaps I'm in need of a scooter. I have been using the scooters provided at the local stores, but like today, none of them were available, and by the time I was at the checkout, the clerk was wanting to call someone to help me. I was in so much pain, I was almost in tears. Is it time? I don't see back surgery in my future any time soon, nor do I see a way for me to drop my extra weight, as most of my meds have side effects that cause weight gain. I'm pretty stable on that, neither dropping or gaining. I will be asking my PCP in a few weeks when I go to see him, and see what he says..
If any of you actually read this, any thoughts?
