It’s a bright late Spring day after two days of weekend rain. My husband and I went into the city today for a walk around.
My dodgy knee has been behaving itself and we have been enjoying the fresh air and getting a bit of exercise. As we usually do, we parked in the Botanical Gardens and walked into town. We strolled round the gardens first and then went to our favorite lunch spot in the city.
We had lunch and started to walk around a bit. After quite a short time I started to feel really fatigued. I felt like my brain wasn’t talking to my legs properly. My legs felt heavy and harder to move. I felt light headed and so very very exhausted. A couple of times my feet would scuff the ground. All the time, I’m thinking is this me progressing all of a sudden? A frightening thought. My husband assured me, that I am just fatigued.
Even being ‘just fatigued’ is not an easy thing. Just a short walk into town surely shouldn’t tire me so much? What hope is there for walking in the Yorkshire Dales for our UK trip next year?
My husband assures me I’m just tired and not to worry. Telling me not to worry is like telling me not to breathe! I just hope this doesn’t mean something has made me get worse all of a sudden!
As I scuffed my feet a few times and I felt the effort of walking, I couldn’t help but think… “This is the reality of my future!”
A scary thought!
