My husband hurt his leg at football practice. He’s a coach on his son’s team. He came back home that night barely able to walk. Being in constant pain due to Fibromyalgia, I am particularly sensitive to other’s pain. Unfortunately, I can’t do it all by myself.
Usually he helps me with laundry by bringing up and down the clothes. I can then take care of folding and putting things away. That day I didn’t want to ask help with bringing up the clean clothes because he was hurt. I figured one time wouldn’t hurt that much. I was wrong. I can’t do stairs while carrying anything. I fell walking up the stairs ended up sprawled on the floor with my head in the laundry basket I was carrying crying as every inch of me hurt. I managed to twist my left knee, pull muscles in both my arms and hurt my back. All because I thought I could manage it all by myself.
I dream of a house where the laundry is on the same floor as my bedroom.
What activity did you use to take for granted that are now out of reach?
