I was doing a lot of moving stuff around last week, I started off by emptying shelves so I could move them around. Was vacuming under them (who knew that so much cat hair could get underneath shelves that seem to fit flush on the floor?) and steam cleaning and then moving and resetting up the shelves in a different area (and room). Then I was getting new bundle of TV, internet and home phone installed on Friday, so had to move all that stuff that was still sitting on the fllor of the living room so the installer could get close to the TV to set things up.....

Because I had to move this stuff before I was actually ready, I now have to move it out of the room I had put it in last Friday, as I never got the floor steamed or the shelves set up like I wanted. I still have a lot of work to do.

But I must have twisted my back when I was moving this stuff, and it still hurts... Well at least I can now sit and lay down without any pain, but it still hurt to try to wash my back. Hopefully I will be ok in another day or two, and then because there is no urgency this time, I should be able to take my time....

    Sorry to hear that you are in pain. There is no pain like back pain. It's like an unkind reminder that 'this is your core, try to do anything without a healthy one.'

    How are you doing since Simon's passing? Has any tiny furball worked its way into your heart yet?

    My son texted his sister the other day and said "you know you miss your cat when you baby talk to a gopher." He was sitting in the park, next to his work site, eating his lunch. Hard to believe he's a 30-year-old construction worker.

    Ouch Linda! I hope your back is better by now (Sunday)! I'm going to try those stretches your friend told you about starting tomorrow myself! My lower back tends to hurt from my exercising! Hope you are feeling better now and do take your time with your rearranging!

    Hope your back is better soon! That is an excellent back stretch from Ellen. I do that every morning whether my back hurts or not!

    Praying that your back will soon be feeling better. When your back hurts, everything seems to ache.

    Ouch!! Hope you are feeling ok now and able to enjoy the fruits of your labors. Those muscles in your back affect everything you try to do. Rest, enjoy, and get better.

    Linda, I am so sorry to hear about your pain. I know you are doing the best you can and doing a good job at it too...I hope you will find some relief in soaking in the tub and going to the library for a book on reflexology--these are way that are not costly and can help some. I can so relate to your situation. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Linda I am sorry you are hurting! When you can afford it look into those systemic enzymes. They are the best for inflammation and your body loves them and needs them!

    Awww Linda, I am sorry to hear you are in pain! I hope your back feels better soon. Hot showers work wonders for sore backs (I have an injured shoulder blade at the moment so I know your pain), and slow stretching!

    Feel better soon!

    So sorry to hear you are in pain Linda! You need to rest up well before you start again! Just do it a little bit at a time! When its better, try doing this exercise my physio gave me, it will strengthen your back and prevent it happening again. Every morning when you wake up, lay flat on the bed. Gently bend your knee and pull it in with your hands to reach as far to your chest as possible without pain. One leg at a time, never both together until your back is stronger. You will find you can gradually pull your knee further in and it will touch your chest. I have been doing this since I slipped my disc and it has really helped, no more back ache when I hoover or lift things.
    Take it easy, and take care!
    Love and emoticon
