12 of 12 June 2013

Here is my 12 of 12 for June, it is basically 12 pictures that summarise my day. This is a bit late but, better to have it late than never 🙂

Bedroom – woke up late this morning, which adds to all the stress of getting ready for college

bedroom – my left knee is pretty sore today, and I think it looks a bit different to normal but I’m not sure, it might just be normal. I’m still trying to get to grips with noticing the signs of inflammation when my joints are bad. So this picture is mainly for my rheumy and physio but I thought I would include it since it technically is part of my 12 of 12.

Bedroom – after getting up late, I managed to have a shower, get changed, have breakfast and take meds by 7.30! Must have been the fastest I’ve ever got ready .

Bedroom – picture of my train ticket! I got this ticket at 13.28 and I had to get the train at 13.30 at the other end of the station. I ended up running for the train with people looking at me like I was silly.

Living room – it took me about an hour and a half to get home from college, with a lot of stress, so I thought I’d treat myself to a chocolate cake

Bedroom – with all the exam stress I hadn’t had time to tidy up my room so I decided that today is the time to tidy it! [please no comments about how messy my room is, I know :)]

bedroom again! – look how tidy it is! And it only took me half an hour. I’ve put all the papers in folders depending on subject, cleared up my desk and my i also tidied my shelf!

Bedroom also – and then I decided to Hoover and dust everything since dust isn’t exactly good for the lungs.

Also in the Living room – I always try to drink a lot before I go coaching, especially because it is so hot on pool side which means it is really easy to get dehydrated.

Living room wearing my trainers, I’m about to go and coach swimming for 3 hours and these trainers dry really quickly since I always come out soaking wet despite me not actually going in the water.

Living room – my leg decided to spontaneously spring a leak!

bedroom so this is my last picture for June 2013’s 12 of 12, the humidity and the chlorine in the pool environment has clearly taken its toll on my lungs since my peak flow is down again.

And that’s it guys! My June 12 of 12. This year is going really quickly, it’s kind if scary. In the coming week I am going to be starting to write my personal statement and get things ready for my university application. That really scares me!

  1. I was 17 when I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis… It was really depressing to see my friends partying while I sit on a corner waiting for the painkiller to take effect… the main reason for my OA? I was overweight. I was seen by different specialists, but only stem cell treatment cured my joint problems completely… My orthopedic surgeon, Dr Purita was a bit different from other specialists I’ve met and had consultation. He’s very supportive and he listened to everything I said (which made me feel comfortable talking to him about my pains). I am trying to build a blog about the story of my OA and add more tips and advices to help other OA patients…

    1. Wow, sounds like you have had it tough! I’m glad you have found a doctor who is supportive and who you are comfortable talking to. I look forward to reading your blog.
