muscle relaxers... ahhh

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

I took two muscle relaxers last night and finally found relief! I do not tend to take these..even tho I have a prescription or two... they make me hung over ... I took two half doses... 6 hours apart.. I will do this again when I get cramps. Nothing else works.. not ice, heat, massage, pain patch, or pain meds.

The pain was non-stop yesterday - I still had to go take care of my dad. I still had to cook, clean and do laundry. My ankle has interfered with my daily life before, but never ever to this extent.

The pain is minimal today but I am still resting the ankle. Ok not complete! I went to dad's again today - visiting dr was coming today and I rode the lawn mower today for almost 3 hours! but did not weed whack!

    Claire - it is a brand new lawn mower... no jossling or bouncing - we have flat land... and if you ever saw what I typically do on our farm - yes that is resting the foot. I will take sitting on the mower any day to the trimming, cutting, weeding, and stacking I usually do. ;o)
