Improving...

Soo got some good news to post...and about time too!

I'm making improvements. Pain is easing a bit, apart from the odd clicking joint and a wisdom tooth coming through. Oh the joys of having Amelogenesis Imperfecta, tooth sensitivity is immense and it's only just breaking through the gum! Anyway, other than the wisdom tooth things are generally improving. Sleeping better is helping lots as well!

For the past week or so I have been managing to get about inside the house minus the crutches!! Still grabbing onto furniture occasionally to steady myself but it's progress! Also started slowly walking down the stairs on good days - giving my bum a much needed rest from bottom shuffling! Don't dare to do it when I'm not feeling particularly good though. And I'm still using the crutches in the garden where there is very little to grab onto should I need support...learned a while back that a wire fence just goes down with you! Haha.

Also got some great assignment results which really surprised me! See my other blog for details: http://lifewithmedoingadegree.blogspot.co.uk/

In other even more exciting news I've met someone special and hope to meet up and go out with him properly soon. Never did I think it would be possible given the situation I'm in with my health, being stuck in the house most of the time it seemed impossible. But I'm very lucky to have met someone, especially someone who understands this illness as well.

Another bit of good news is I'm in the process of ordering a new lightweight wheelchair as I really dislike the one we have at the moment - every bump in the pavement is really noticeable so it makes any trip out even more tiring. Fingers crossed it means I'll be able to get out a bit more!

All in all life is on the up, I'm so happy at the moment even the situation with my neighbours isn't getting me down! In fact I think I'm annoying them by going about in the garden so happy, but tough luck - my garden, my life, I'll smile all I want! :D

Anyway that's all for now, (I think) hope to be able to update this blog a bit more as I continue to improve.
