Warning: Woe is me post. May be a good idea just to skip this one!
We have been away for a couple of wonderful days on holiday, and everything was perfect until last night when I felt a familiar bump come up on my bottom. I knew that my recent run of luck was too good to be true. I have a Hidradenitis flare up again. I was used to getting these every month before I was pregnant but the last one I had was in February, around week 12 so the fact that I had made it to 36 weeks was nothing short of amazing.
Anyway, what this means is that I cannot sit, or walk or lie down comfortable. The only place I get some relief is in the bath where I cannot spend all my time. I got so little sleep last night and this just means that I am in a foul mood.
Sorry, complaining so much but this hurts and it scares me. I have learnt to live with the condition in the best way that I can but what happens when it flares up and I have a baby to look after. What happens if walking is too painful, if I cannot sit comfortably to feed him?
I want to scream and cry that it is not fair but that will not achieve anything. Will go and get a cuddle from Mr C and some reassurance that everything will be okay and I will perk up again I am sure. Being in pain and not having pain killers always makes life seem worse anyway.
Looking on the bright side, we really did have a lovely time away together.
