I hate crutches!!!!

That's all I can say ... Down to using just one crutch .. slowly but surely getting better ... thank you ... there is a god!!! Its been driving me nuts .. all this good weather spring unfurling its leaves, petals and catkins ... and im stuck inside and cant get out.

What happened I had a fit on the Friday before mothers day. My neighbours heard me having it and said that's jenny ... and they came running round to make sure I was ok .. I came round and theyre both sat there watching me and waiting for my sister to arrive (they'd rang one of my sisters). Anyway id hurt my leg, my foot, ankle and my hip but I don't know what I did. My brother called in and asked if I wanted to go to a&e but I said no .. i'll see what its like tomorrow .... well I had great fun trying to get up the stairs never mind sleeping. On Saturday it was worse than what it was on Friday nite .. and I was in tears ... so rang bro up and said will you take me to a&e it hurts worse than what it did last night. He said yes i'll be down in about half an hour. An hour later he turns up and takes me off to a&e .. 3hours later gets told its not broken and given a pair of crutches and a prescription for pain killers - codeine ... was told by the doc that the pharmacy was shut and to get them tomorrow. So bro took it down to the pharmacy at Tesco in hassy and they said that he could only get it from the pharmacy at the hospital. The doc didn't tell us that ... so bro had to go back to Blackburn hospital on the sunday to get the prescription!!

Well me on crutches .. the last time I was on crutches was 20 years ago .. it was funny then .. and just as stupid now .. Im flipping hopeless on them. It was easier not to move once I got downstairs. Ive been lucky though... my nephew has done the majority of my shopping for me, my bro has done some of it as well. And when I gave up on my brother and my nephew ... Tesco delivery ... and then got shouted at by my brother i'll do it cheaper than you having to pay for the delivery .. but yes I get to choose what I want ... and I know it will get delivered not what you decide to buy ... You can tell im not right struck on the Tesco delivery either. When I first did the Tesco delivery ... there wasn't a minimum delivery ok it cost 3 for delivery ... but no minimum like there was on asda having to fork out at least 25. Then they changed it to 1 or 2 for delivery but a minimum order of 25 and if you ordered less than 25 then you got charged 4 on top of your order as well. Never thought id be saying this .. but I cant wait to get back to doing my own shopping!!! Have only been out twice .. since this happened ... once to the docs in hassy and another for a medical in whalley .. and that's been that. Cant even make it across the road to the shop. These past couple of days ive been walking down the bottom of the garden as its been getting a bit easier .. but I think ive done too much today .. I walked round the front garden and down the back garden and its hurting like anything now.

So all in all I haven't been out for 4 weeks except for a visits to the docs ... and they don't know what ive done .. think it is/was a soft tissue injury the xrays at the hospital said it wasn't broken .. hopefully by the end of this week if I don't do too much I will be doing my own shopping .. something for me to aspire to ... even tho my nephew is doing my shopping for me tomorrow ...
