wednesday, 7/17 still in pain, stressed out
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
my computer is in the shop nx this one won't type caps--which helps me as i type with one hand.
we bought a car from a couple at our church which is helping us as we work on a more helpful, all-round solution.
my pain is still pretty rough. i have 2 more doses of the strong meds and then i have to start using the lower dose medication. it hurts when i move it a cm in any direction--when i think about moving it. i got a 'bandeau' which is working for a bra--bought an extra large so i can step into it and get help pulling it up.
i'm getting more and more blue because i don't know how to do nothing or next to nothing. i got a replacement cane, but my back has been spasming and i am having trouble trying to walk because of my back pain. it is time for an injection but i cannot conceivably go lie on my tummy and have one. i am not handling pain well at all and feel a bit sad for that as well.
too much tv and reading--too much waiting for this to be better...i have physical therapy on friday, hopefully that will be a milestone for me in the path to healing.
take care...gentle hugs,
