Let us not do *that* again!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

First off, I thank all of you for the love and silly notes!

I'm back and feeling better.

Actually, my back is feeling better. *I* feel like a slug.

Spending almost 3 weeks doing nothing but taking muscle relaxants and pain killers is brutal on one's routine AND mood.

I walked for the first time this weekend and was less than pleased with the results. But then again I have never been a patient person with it comes to such things.

It is bugging me more than it should that I'm skipping a 1/2 marathon this Saturday that had already registered for. I know, I know....I should just get over it. And I'm working on it.

Meantime, I'll be walking, but will be swimming more for now. And holy crap I need to get my eating back on track! I managed to gain 10lbs from all of this.

That will NOT do!!

I know that people joke about being able to take muscle relaxants and such. I have no idea why. Weird mood swings and WEIRD dreams.


I would not, could not on a dare. I would not, could not take them just anywhere. I do not like them. Sam I am. (Apologies to Dr Seuss!)

I will say that I have a new appreciation for those with chronic pain. I knew that it sucked. I just had no earthly idea how much. Hats off to those that manage it without breaking any laws against humanity!

And last, but by no means least, I'm glad to be back with all y'all!

    Glad you are back with us and also very glad that you don't like those muscle relaxants. Bad thing to get addicted to!

You were very missed and I can feel for what you went through. I spent 2 weeks flat on my back with severe pain about 13 years ago and never want to go back to that place again!

I absolutely love your background page!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better! Although, I hate to say I don't know what put you in pain in the first place! Either way, the important thing is that you are better!
