Things have been a bit quite around here lately, sorry about that. My mum’s wedding is getting closer and closer so I’ve been busy helping out on that score as much as I can. Sorry for my silence, but I’m hoping it will all be worth it in the end. There have been a couple of things happening in my life lately that I want to tell you all about quickly now, and then I’ll go into more details when I have more time.
I’ve had my splint adjusted
Some of you may remember I’ve been having some problems with my left splint still rubbing me. My orthotist sent it away to be adjusted to see if that would help. I’ve been given it back now and I just have to try it. I’m sat wearing it now and it feels quite comfortable. It’s still a bit sore when I walk in it, but like new shoes, you have to try bed them in a little bit. if it’s no better in a couple of weeks I’ll go back to my orthotist, but for now I’ll just have to wait and see.
I’ve just found some velcro shoes
Needless to say, I’m very happy about this because I can’t tie my own shoelaces. I can do them when I’m not wearing the shoe, but I can’t manage it when the shoes are on my feet quite yet. I’ll get there one day, I’m sure.
I’m starting to feel achy again
I go through phases where my muscles feel more achy and stiff than for a few days or weeks, and then they will go back to feeling the same as they usually do which I can handle without any problems. I’ve been feeling it a bit more than normal for the last few days, bu I’m hoping I can stop it from getting too bad.
