I feel like I am going to be sick, I feel like I’m sat in a sauna and I feel like a car hit me as I crossed a road (I actual know how that feels).

The reason for this is that I had a look round the local Maplin yesterday morning and then when I came home I used the items I purchased to do some more work to the quadcopter I have been building, this was only half an hour sat in a chair connecting some wires and securing them with cable ties.

I have never been very good at pacing but over doing it used to mean pushing a couple of miles in my wheelchair or like the time I planted fourteen shrubs in the garden whilst sat down but now it doesn’t take much to leave me sweating and feeling like I used to when I had run ten miles (many years ago) and I can even end up like this after mental exertion.


Fortunately its been a bad summer and so I have not had to suffer too many days where I wish I could climb inside the freezer and yet I can’t help but think about the approaching colder months. The spring and summer flys by and the autumn and winter feel like an eternity and that is probably down to the increased pain levels.

So today I have sworn that I will not move off of the settee except for going to the loo, I say that like it’s something new and yet the truth is that most days are like this. So I now need to somehow persuade my family to let me watch Star Wars, that in itself is a challenge that could take a long while.
