I can’t do that but I can do this

Finally back at work and have done a couple of shifts. So far so good although I’m limited with some things because of my arthritis. I picked a guitar up for the first time in months and played a couple of instrumentals for a youngster who said to me afterwards “that was beautiful”. He then gave me a demonstration of his drumming skills and I returned the compliment. Somehow I have a feeling I’ve seen the last of my big regular gigs but it’s lovely to still be able to engage and make an impact with children through my music.

  1. it is good to know that despite your arthritis, you can still do the things you love live playing the guitar. When I was 17, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and it was really depressing. My hips and knees didn’t allow me to go out with friends (it was odd because my joint pain loved to hit me during weekend!). My running routine and goal was also ruined. Anyways, my OA was completely cured after several months. I had a stem cell treatment (after quitting on my PT session as it did not give my joints relief) with my orthopedic surgeon, Dr Purita. It was a 5-week session and 3 months after the therapy, my joints went back to normal, and so as my life. LOL

    • Hey Kirs that’s a lovely story and thanks for sharing it. Arthritis is a dreadful condition and can be extremely painful as well as debilitating. To those who haven’t experienced it I guess Arthritis is just a word so it’s great that you highlight it through your blog. I’m glad you have a good quality of life today. Warm regards Alan 🙂
