Well, I can't wait that long - goodness knows how long a referral would take - so I've booked in for a chiropractic treatment on Monday. I'm trying to carry on as normal, we even went out to our favourite little town, Wells, yesterday for lunch and a walk round the lovely little shops. Had to cut it short though and go home as I was getting more crippled by the minute. After taking pills and lying on the bed for an hour, the muscle spasms stopped and I could move around again. This is what it's like all the time.....I do some activity for an hour or so, be it a bit of housework, cooking or walking round somewhere, then I'm in such agony and so bent over sideways that I have to stop and rest completely. I'm also totally woolly-headed from all the tablets, my brain feels like it's in slow motion.
The garden's coming on a treat....husband is doing all the work as i'm so incapacitated, I'll take some photos and put them on soon. We're eating onions, new potatoes, courgettes, baby carrots, radishes and strawberries from the garden. Just bought a couple of French lavenders and a gorgeous smelling old fashioned type deep pink David Austin rose, OH's just planted them in the front garden. Had a bit of rain at last, much to OH's relief as his water butt has been empty for ages.....they've been forecasting showers for the west country for a week or more, but up till yesterday they'd mostly bypassed us completely. We definitely need more rain though, everything is so bone dry.
