I am going to be Positive today

Last night my head started to swell and hurt in various places. My husband was concerned and wanted to take me to the doctors. This is not the first time this has happened recently and I put it down to being tired. Off I went to bed.

I woke up this morning to discover my right hand is being a bit cantankerous to say the least. It does this from time to time with spondylitis and means I can't hold a pen let alone a glass of orange juice. My husband bless him had to feed me this morning. I dislike this feeling. I know these conditions are just part of me and I have to get used to them. It is hard to say the least and many will say that is an understatement.

Everyday is not the same. I can do well some days others not so well.

My aim today is to get stuff sent to the tip and sort things out as best I can.

Tomorrow I have a committee meeting for Relay for Life and want to go to see some people in Shrewsbury today to see what I can secure for the event if anything. If I don't get anywhere at least I will have tried my best.

Am not sure if I will need my dreaded wheelchair today or not. I think the damp weather certainly does not help my joints.

Oh well onwards and upwards.

I am also going to follow Liam's advice and see where this leads me.

Who knows one day I will achieve my dreams.

I have already done my Chairman's Challenge and wish there were others I could do between the monthly meetings. Sad I know but heyho. At least there is Poetry Street to also keep me occupied.

I am looking forward to next Sunday now at Market Drayton.

Best wishes to everyone.



  1. Fee - I'm sorry but one of the most important things about being a writer is that you get your facts correct. Spondylitis does not affect the hands and anyone who suffers from this painful condition would seriously query what you've written.

  2. Dearest Sue,

    I have been told that my conditions with my back and hands is spondylitis so I have not queried the doctors on this however, I will do so in the very near future as you say I have to get my facts right.

    Thanks for letting me know yet again I have an incorrect diagnosis from the 13 consultants I now have.

  3. I hope you find this information useful and understand why I said that Spondylitis does not affect the hands.
