The main problem of course is that I find it increasingly difficult to wake up in the mornings before work to take Shinobi on walks. I walk her in a half awake state, joints aching and shivering. I am no longer enjoying our morning walks. I also fall asleep almost immediately when I get home from work, often at around 8pm. I walk Shinobi, I am exhausted. For someone who used to go to the gym 2 hours a day after work, and run quite comfortably 10 miles in little more than an hour; I feel lifeless.
I've heard that the meds take a long time to make a person feel better, if they do at all. Although I religiously walk Shinobi, I would like to be able to walk her without it wiping me out for the rest for the day. She's only going to need more exercise as she gets older. I hope that my diagnosis and meds will help us enjoy our energetic time together again.
And now the important bit, photos of Shinobi! Enjoying our visit to a scultpure garden with my family:-
Getting happier and more confident on car journeys.
Sitting in the middle to watch the road
A little unbrella snack
A hole in the ceiling
Trying to shelter from the rain. Shinobi loves the rain, she likes to roll in wet grass
