Basically she's just about to be diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. Its taken a long time for the Dr's to recognise the level on pain she is and therefore its delayed tests and any treatment she had needed. As a result she is getting very low as she cant do very much because of the pain and is in bed alot of the day. Understanably she is very bored. My mum is one of these people that likes to keep busy. She normally plays the piano but can't because of the pain in her neck, reads but shes bored of reading constantly now I think and her and my dad have an allotment but again she cant deal with that because of her swollen joints and pain.
So can you see my problem? I want to get her something that she can do or to stop her from being so fed up and bored. Any ideas because I have none!
I'm just thinking about dvds that she might like. Scrapbook is a good idea. I could give her some photos of the kids to use. Watercolours, not sure. My dad has allsorts of art stuff and she never uses it.
Thanks for all these suggestions. Its really helpful.
