I am working on about an hours sleep today and it is killing me. I am so tired it is not even funny!
I am in a staggering amount of pain, when I was pregnant with Baba a little bit of fatty muscle became lose in my right knee cap. I can’t remember the technical term for it but by the end of the pregnancy I couldn’t walk properly on my knee and would spend most nights just crying as I was in so much pain. After three months of having him I was booked in to have the tissue removed, and my knee was so much better.
However over the last few months I have noticed more and more pain in my knee, last night it was unbearable. I actually couldn’t bend it to get of the sofa, climbing the stairs was the hardest thing in the world and I nearly crawled up them last night. I was that far forward in trying to walk up them. When I finally got to bed I was mentally tired, and physically tired but my knee would not let up. I had taken painkillers and still there was no relief. I tossed and turned all night, finally falling asleep about 3am this morning.
To be woken at 4am as Baba had a raging temperature, and wasn’t feeling very well. Since then he has been awake and I haven’t managed to sleep since. He has sat on my knee, I actually cried and we managed to eventually get back down the stairs. Getting back up may be an issue. I have an appointment at 4pm I don’t know what the doctor will say but I need to sleep. I can not be living with this pain anymore it is so painful.
I can no longer, sit or lay and be comfortable, which is just stupid. Whatever position I am in I am never comfortable. Do you know how frustrating that is?
So I am a little grumpy today so please bear with me I will get the things that people are waiting for done, but I am a little preoccupied with sleep and pain, pain and sleep.
I just wish I was as quick to bounce back as Baba as he seems fine now, although a little tired. I am going to try to get him to have a sleep in a while and then I can have a little rest too. But for now I am going to struggle through because that’s what we do!
