Physical health rant

GreenTeaGreenTea Posts: 12,938 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix
I constantly feel physically crap.
My muscles constantly ache and I constantly get cramps in my legs.
My headaches are beyond Belief.
And I have a really gross cold and feel so snotty and gross.
The sudden cold weather again has caused my knee to swell and be painful, bone on bone vibes. 👌👌

My physical health is really putting me down and j just want to rant because I'm sick of being physically unwell as well as fighting with my mental health.

    It's not easy, and all that while being sick, hope you feel better soon

    My pyshical health is also declining. Things snapping in my knee again, I'm pre-fainting a few times a day, back is even more hurting than usual, have to squint all the time because my eyes are so dry. Wanted to go into physical therapy this year but oh well

    O too am constantly hurting and it's is difficult, standing up and sitting down are the worst as my muscles ache and then actually hurt when I've sat down.

    Im sorry youre aching and have bad headaches, I hope everything starts to get better for you.

    Hi @GreenTea

    I can hear you are dealing with quite a lot at the moment and I am glad you reached out. You deserve to feel supported :heart:

    I am wondering how much you have spoken to a GP about these symptoms?

    I would go to my GP but it's shut and doctors are so overworked at the moment, so I'm gonna suffer for a while

    That sounds horrible :( It's understandable your physical health's putting you down. Not being able to go to your GP must make it even harder for you.

    You're always welcome to rant to us. I'm here if you feel like talking to someone, I'm probably not the first person anyone would want to chat with but all the same. How's your cold right now? <3

    I'm really sorry to hear that you're not able to speak to your GP at the moment @GreenTea I hope that changes soon. Something that you might find helpful is to put in your symptoms and details into the NHS 111 website https://111.nhs.uk/ and see what kind of advice or possible next steps it mentions.

    Even with everything else going on in the world at the moment it's important to look after yourself as best you can, everyone here on the boards is rooting for you! <3

    Hey green tea. I hope some of these have improved now? 
    Your physical health can really affect mental health. So i really hope it improves as don't deserve to hurt mentally and physical. That is horrible

     Take care off your self!
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Things are kinda approving, but nothing can be done about anything until this virus is over 😬🙃
