I haven’t blogged for a few days because I’ve been busy, in a lot of pain and feeling a bit down, which got me thinking deeply about life in general but also about my current situation. This led me to realise that sometimes all I need is a hug. My leg is causing a lot of pain, and although seeing my consultant today explained why the pain is there and so bad it didn’t get rid of it so I suspect there will be many more nights with lack of sleep, but when I’m struggling to sleep I just turn over and give my husband a hug and it doesn’t feel quite so bad for a bit. When I’m stuck in the flat all day going out of my mind with frustration and only myself for company it all disappears when my husband comes home and gives me a hug. Things are difficult for my husband and I at the moment for various reasons but when we feel down a hug goes a long way to reminding ourselves of the good things, each other. So go on – give somebody a hug.
A hug, that’s all it takes.
