It’s a sunnier day

I thought I should write to say I’m a bit more positive today 😊. In fact, I’ve had a pretty good weekend despite it being full of lots of the same, I also had a lovely evening on Friday with some of my sisters and laughed more than I have for quite some time. Much needed!

I called my GP last week too and talked about my back. Not really about the depression. He gave me diazepam and co-codamol and that seemed to help quite a lot although I have now finished the diazepam and still have the back pain. But he also wanted to do a blood test to check inflammatory markers (not done at my hospital visits) so we’ll see if that brings up anything. To be fair, I think I’ve just pulled something!

I managed to do some gardening yesterday which was good and part of me wonders if doing some gentle work like that might actually help me to stretch out my muscles and help them to recover. I certainly don’t feel any worse today from it, and mentally, it helped me no end to actually do something productive. I’m back walking Marley too which is always good once I get out there, especially with some good music playing through the headphones.

Anyway, the sun is shining this morning so I’m going to get out there and walk the dog and try and smile a bit more. Perhaps spring will come quickly this year and we can have another sunny March like last year. That would cheer us all up!

About Deb Gascoyne

I am wife of one, mother of two (& a dog!) and a person in my own right😊. I have used my diagnosis of myeloma to allow me to focus on what I CAN achieve and not what I can't. My blog is a way of me spilling is for me more than you I'm afraid. But if it helps you along the way, that is an absolute bonus for me :-) Diagnosed in 2009 with smouldering myeloma, I started treatment in 2010 and had a SCT in 2011. I’ve was on maintenance until November 2018 but my figures went up so officially relapsed. I have been on dara since 2019 and had my second transplant in September 2020. Still on dara and keeping fingers crossed.
