I'm in too much pain for a real title...

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Just wanted to post a fast entry to say I'm going to be away from the computer tonight and maybe tomorrow. I hurt my back. BAD. Dh got me an Icy Hot patch and I took a prescription Ibuprofen and I can move around a little bit. But I suspect it is only the pain being masked and it's not actually getting better. So I'm going to resign myself to laying down for the rest of the night, and hope to wake up with it gone tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a good night!

    Sorry to hear about your back woes! Painful backs are no picnic that's for darn sure! I have one too. Actually I have damaged discs (bulging and herniated) from an accident a few years ago. One thing I did learn is while it's important to not overdo things, it's just as important to not overindulge the pain. It's not always easy or something I want to do, but getting up everyday and making myself move, if even just a little, helps to be able to keep getting up and being able to do it again the next day. Alternating ice and heat helps. I'm hoping to be able to get the surgery I need soon, but until then, it's careful and cautious movement!

    Best of luck to you!

    Oh dear. I'm so sorry your back is bad. That stinks. Hope it gets to feeling better real soon. I agree, they need a wagon emoticon. We have a fabric fold up wagon we take to the beach, carry the umbrella, towels, chairs, etc in it. Get a good nights sleep. Hope you feel better tomorrow.

    Hope it feels better tomorrow. Back pain is no fun! I'm recovering from a broken rib. Takes forever to heal!
