My husband always says to me, because you’re moody, go for a swim? Some days it’s unbearable,
some days it’s okay. I’m either taking loads of tablets or
trying not to take pain killers. It’s like a real sharpness with your knees,
you just want to hit your knees with a hammer or something. I used to love Zumba, and other keep fit exercise classes. But obviously as the arthritis kicked in I couldn’t do any of that. It affects my mood a lot, obviously I’m irritable
with the kids and my husband. The doctors start saying you know you’ve got to find something. The best part of the swimming is the floating. The pressure off my knees is fantastic, you just feel so full of release. It just alleviates the pain. I’m noticing the difference where clothes are looser. I feel more confident. My mood is lifted and that can last all day.
