Aches and Pains
Thursday, June 23, 2011
Lately it seems like I get a twitch of pain here and one there. I can understand my knees because like many I've developed arthritis but do they have to become so stiff when I get up after sitting for a long time. Years ago I learned I had bone spurs which brings pain when I kneel
Then there is the back Many mornings I do wake up with stiffness which I know is due to the need for a new mattress which maybe next year the budget will allow . It is those twitches that remind me I shouldn't be bending from the waste even to pick up a piece of paper Of course bringing in groceries and such doesn't help
I know a lot of it is the weight I'm carrying and once I lose some some of the aches and pains will disappear
So in the mean time in between time I have to remind myself that this is part of getting older and when I see others I know it could be a whole lot worst.
