I have bursitis in my shoulder, I have had it for 4 years now and am up to 9 cortisone injections.
Once again, what should of been a simple task of helping at DDs school on Friday clean tables, chairs and tubs, resulted in me popping my bursa and having to go to emergency.
The technician thought she was seeing the wrong thing due to the size, my left side, the bad one, measured 2.1mm, doesn't sound bad, but my right side, measures a measly .3mm, as they should.
I had another injection and I have been in agony since. I can't do a single thing for myself, housework, cooking dinner, anything, it kills. I had to get DD to undo my bra for me all weekend, I've had my mum and DP here every day looking after me.
I'm over it! Yes this is a major whinge, but I'm 30 years old, I've been a single mum for 8 years now, I am used to being independent, the type of girl that doesn't need a man around the house, now I can't even wash my own bl00dy hair without crying in pain.
I have a doctors appointment Thursday to get referred to a specialist, but I'm just over it, on top of everything else this year I thought my shoulder was getting better, but now it's the worst it's ever been.
Sorry, just needed to get it out, I've been in tears every night over this and I've had enough, I just want a break in life!!!

Ongoing pain like that is soul destroying. I really hope you get some relief soon...hopefully the specialist can offer you a solution.
Do you have anyone in your life that could help out a little with the day to day running of the house?

My problem is accepting that I need the help, as it is my mum is doing my laundry and DP is doing so much.
I'm just over it.
And after my stupid overdose attempt last month doctors don't want to prescribe me endone again understandably but the pain is unbearable

You had an overdose attempt .
Are you seeing anyone to talk about everything you are going through?
It is not really the same, but with SPD in pregnancy I can't stand accepting that I can do hardly anything and accepting any help. It is really hard for me and I hate it, it makes me feel really depressed. I say it's not really the same because I have an end point to look forward to.
Is there anything the doctors can do? I don't know anything about the condition. Is there a surgery option?

Yeah unfortunately I did, been a bad year, dumped on my 30th in January from a guy who gave me herpes, then screwed over a month later by my best mate of 15 years who was living with us. Read my previous posts, this year has been horrible, but with some great support and lots of medications I'm coping.
I'm getting there, I thought I was, but this pain is making me feel so god damn useless I'm a mess again, poor DD is having to do so much, and she's a kid! I should be looking after her, not the other way round.
Apprentantly I need a reconstruction but they're reluctant cause of my age that doesn't help me now though! I only have use of one arm!!! How do they expect me to function until they deem me old enough???

Best wishes singlemumma.
Hope you can bounce back strong x

Oh gosh that sounds awful. I too am a singe mum and know what you mean about hating asking for help and support. You think you should be able to do it all. But take it while ppl are asking.
I hope they can do something for you soon. Best of luck!
