Feeling Like Rubbish

Yup, I'm not feeling too clever at the moment.  For the past 2 years I've had a problem with my neck and shoulder.  Although I already knew what the problem with my neck was, the thing with my shoulder is a newish one; it started approx 2 years ago and it's been a nightmare.  Then finally last month I got a diagnosis, I was told it's 'frozen shoulder'  Wow, I could have told them that!  Trying to wash and dry my hair, dress and do routine household tasks for the last few years has been a terrible. Plus I work as a secretary for a small fab company, and typing all day is really stressful.  Then to further complicate things I decided, in my wisdom to have foot surgery in February. But hey-ho, at least I'm now getting the proper treatment - steroid injections. 

I had my first one yesterday and this is why 'I feel like rubbish'! Within hours of having the injection I had neck pain, a metallic taste in my mouth, then I got a really bad sore throat, a nose bleed.......and this morning I woke up chocka full of cold. :(    Sniff   Sniff    Sniff

Apparently steroid injections lower your immune system to help reduce the inflammation.  Well, they could have told me first.  My daughter's been ill all week with virus, so obviously I caught a bit of her bug. Ugh!!

Ah well...never mind.  Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow feeling bit better.  I better...as I'm starting back at work on Thursday after being on sick leave for 3 months. I know, I know bad timing!!  Right that me feeling sorry for myself over with now.

On a good note though...my monthly craft club idea 'Chit-Chat & Craft has taken off in Normanby, Middlesbrough and is due to start on Saturday 8th June.  So if by any chance you live somewhere near and would like to come along.  Leave me a comment and email address and I'll get back to you.
