I've been doing everything I should, when I should.
I've done my pelvic exercises and have walked around the house to improve my circulation. I've rested with my feet up and taken an afternoon nap. In fact, I think I'm doing really well and a model patient.
So the wave of pain which has crept up and bitten me is just so.....unfair!
It made me edgy and uncomfortable. I tried to relax and breathe through, but the pain just got worse, to the point I panicked and cried, I felt I was letting myself down.
This isn't the person I want to be. I want to be calm, I aim to be serene and in control and not controlled.
Codeine saved the day; 30 minutes and I'm back.
I need to learn to not beat myself up like this, I'm sure there will be more episodes like this to come ( I just hope not too many!!)
