Nine days since my op was performed and I am bored. I’ve already dreamed about work 5 times, quite vivid dreams as well! I miss work a lot, I know everyone is on half-term holiday at the moment but I feel like I don’t deserve to be at home, I’ve already missed a week of work. I might complain a lot about having to go to work and getting up early and not having enough time, but I really do love my job! The satisfaction I get from it is immense and the amount of fun I have at work is beyond your wildest dreams. I think I’ll have to write a post about my job and what I actually do there, that can be project for later on this coming week.
Anyway, back to me and my boredom. As you probably know from my blog my main pass times are; exercise, baking/cooking and haberdashery. Now I have a knee that is hardly bendable beyond 90˚, hurts when I walk, hurts when I stand up/sit for a long time (i.e. longer than 10min) and the pain killers make me faint and nauseous. Yesterday I decided I would try and cook dinner. Don’t get me wrong; Rob has been cooking lunches and dinners for us and it’s all very lovely, but I miss cooking! After about 20min in the kitchen my knee had had enough and felt like it was made of concrete. It’s a real downer this. I am used to being busy, I like being busy, and now I am stuck on the sofa or in my bed. I don’t know what I had imagined before, but I sure had imagined it wrong because it wasn’t anything like this. By day nine I had thought I’d be up and about, almost walking normally… At the moment I can’t even imagine this improving within the next 5 weeks. I’m so scared about going back to work in 5 weeks time… In 1,5 weeks time I’m going for my first physiotherapy appointment, hopefully things will move on quicker than it has so far, and hopefully I won’t be as scared after that.
