My father is suffering from rheumatism for years already. Before only his ankles that are swelling that he cannot walk at all. He took medicines that are prescribed by his doctor. Every time his rheumatism is visiting him, he take the same medicine. He tried herbal medicine but gave up because it didn’t ease the pain. He lost patience to the point of saying he is tried of his love. Oh well, oldies are like that. sigh!
This week, the rheumatism is here again saying hi to my father. lol Always angry and yelling at me and his grandchildren. I understand him because I can see it in his face that he is in pain. The rheumatism is attacking his shoulder this time. His legs are free but his shoulder is not. My father is taking lots of medicines but still no effect. I even think that the rheumatism is used to those medicines he is taking.
Seeing him in pain makes me so sad and tired. Tired because I have to attend him. I am an instant nurse to my father plus a babysitter to my nieces and nephews. Sometimes I do not have the power and energy to take care of them. whew! I pray that this rheumatism will leave my father alone so that he wont feels any pain.
