Having a few days off

Yesterday I fell asleep instead of posting.

Tonight, after 12 hours helping bottle jerk seasoning I feel like my body is about to fall apart. From my bad back to my arthritic fingers I am a total wreck.

After a couple of hours my back started to seize. After six hours my knee went, closely followed by feet. After ten hours my fingers started failing. Then, after eleven hours, I lost the will to live.

I’m going to sleep now, and will see if I can do better tomorrow.

    Any continuous activity like that can cause real pain and some damage. I hope you are feeling better. I have been told that to limit pain from arthritic joints I have to change what I do every twenty minutes or at least have a good rest every twenty minutes. I don’t often follow this advice myself as I like to get a job done as quickly as possible but it does stop the joints stiffening and the limits the amount of pain too.

        What misery! I’m sorry you are in such discomfort. The change of occupation after 20 minutes also means no sitting still for longer than that amount of time especially when joints are inflamed. It can all get a bit tiresome but it really works. πŸ™‚

        Oh, me too! I get so stiff I can hardly walk sometimes. Just a little walk round the house, make a cup of tea/coffee and you are quite refreshed!
