well I like to keep adding diary entries as you will see, it has been a great outlet for me to get my thoughts down in black and white so to speak
as you know I work for a housing associationas a customer services officer which at times is very stressful, when I am having a real bad day the pain levels in my knees feel like lightening bolts going into my knees which is very painful. you may ask how do I cope and still manage to work????
Well the good thing is the job is always on the go and never boring, I enjoy getting repairs sorted out for residents or resolving a neighbour complaint. When my mind is busy it is not thinking about the pain that I am in. I am also going to be on a working group to help improve services for our residents which I am looking forward to being an advocate so to speak as some disabilities like mine are hidden and unless you see with with my walking you may not realise that I am a disabled person.
I also go and do a relaxation technique which helps me de-stress and it also brings the pain down for a few days which is good but I do still have days where I cry myself to sleep when I reach my breaking point but I have learned to get through the bad days better now with the help on my friends here on mdj who have taught me that I can get through anytbing.
thank you to all my friends here at mdj as you help get me through the good the bad and well the ugly too, thank you!!!!
