Some of you may know, some may not, but I suffer from a few chronic illnesses. I’ve been having a bit of a rough time with them of late, but rather than complain too much about them I’ve been trying to get on with life. The dreaded Fibromyalgia is trying to force itself upon my life and my crafting is suffering amongst other areas of my life.
Just recently I have started to crochet – I learnt to crochet at Super+Super HQ the other month in fact. However, my fears about the craft have come true and it has triggered some upper right arm pain and tendinitis in my right wrist. I’m sure you can imagine this is incredibly frustrating as with new crafts you just want to get going and enjoy it. Right now I cannot and it is quite upsetting at times.
I’m not entirely sure why I thought I would share this with you, but I thought perhaps some may wonder why I’d not shown much further progress on the crochet front and now you know why. I’m just going to have to give it a rest until my wrist and upper arm ease. Boo hiss.
PS if you suffer from Fibromyalgia too, why not let me know. Either in the comments below or even pop me a Tweet or an email. It’s not nice being in this kind of position health – wise, but at least there are some people who understand.
