I’ve noticed a lot of link ups that have nothing to do with the theme of my linky and even link to Facebook pages. I’m not strict, and I’m happy for new blogs to link up, but if you don’t even read what the linky is about, or partake in reading other posts then I’m afraid there is a little delete button on the bottom of each link up that I can click, and I will.
Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week. A nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is ‘back pain’ and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase. But please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week.There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to MixPlease add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week.
MY WORD OF THE WEEK –BACK PAIN
I don’t know why but last Friday my back started hurting. Not just aching, but really hurting. Every movement hurt, sitting hurt, standing hurt, lying down hurt…I think you get the idea. Bending was impossible without me feeling agony. If you’ve had back pain I think you will understand.
I hadn’t done anything to hurt my back, and after a consultation with my GP it was blamed on my condition. (Isn’t everything, I swear, if I got a blister on my thumb it would be blamed on my condition!) But, I’ll take it. It means I can’t do anything but take stronger painkillers. So, now I have another pill to add to my collection. Thankfully, one week on and I think it may be getting better. I’ll just be happy to move again without it bringing a tear to my eye. I’ll even go as far as saying I’ve missed being able to sort the washing, and the little bits of housework I usually do.
It’s not all about back pain though, we have other ‘backs’ this week.
Back to School
It’s such a weird time. Normally we’d be looking forward to a six week break from school, but the kids have been off so long now we are actually looking forward to going back before the holidays have begun! The kids have all received back to school letters and detailed information about how it’s all going to be for them. It looks like The Little Man will be going back to a more normal routine than the girls as he is still in primary school.
Back to Normal
The virus hasn’t suddenly disappeared, but now that it’s more under control then the Country is getting back to normal. It’s not the normal we are used to (so is it actually normal then?) but it’s a return to work and going out again. I don’t really see things changing much for us, we never really went out much anyway, and I work from home. But life is returning from it’s long slumber.
Back to Treatment
After a telephone consultation earlier this week it has been decided that I will be going back to hospital for my IVIG treatments. I’ll be having five days infusion to start off with, with a formal assessment of my condition both before and after. Then I may be continuing with five day treatments every three months.
I’m also going back to have Walter (the leak on my brain) checked by MRI as it’s been four months since he was last looked at.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
