I have no intention of writing a journal about my suffering to boost my reader figures. Suffice to say, I am almost certain that by my birthday (October), I will be virtually housebound. Movement as the days pass is becoming ever more painful for me, and I can't stand without pain.
To give you an idea of what I go through, imagine each step you take somebody drives a knife into the joints of your spine, and keeps twisting the blade.
I lost most of yesterday because I could hardly move the fingers of my right hand, and spent the night in agony with constant pains in my left arm.
If things continue as they are - and they will - I foresee my needing to use Dragon software http://www.nuance.co.uk/dragon/index.htm for my writing needs by early in the New Year.
