No, I am not a pirate.
I am irate without the "p"

I have been able to keep on doing my PT stretches - perhaps 10-15 minutes, but no weights.

I have kept my pedometer on me so I know I am counting my steps.

The pain is irritating - I feel like 1/4 to 1/3 of myself is hurting. I am just trying to make it through Thursday's board meeting, and crawl towards the weekend.

This is not what I usually want to write.
It is not upbeat or encouraging to anyone, except perhaps to me, in some odd way because it gives me a chance to vent.

I miss that I can't do much more right now. I am realizing that I am reaching that point of pain that something will have to be done. and probably soon, if I can get the attention of worker's comp.

Maybe I am an irate pirate turtle.

    We're here for you when you need to vent! I do hope it gets better, I'm sorry you are in pain. Hope workman's comp comes through for you soon, I know the wait is as excrutiating as the pain...

    I'm sorry to hear that you are still hurting. My back is actually a little better today. I was going to call the surgeon today, but was so busy at work that I didn't get a chance. I guess I will wait another day or 2 and see how it goes. I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers for a speedy recovery. And you go right ahead & vent-it's better to let it out than to keep it in!! emoticon

    I'm so sorry you're in so much pain....I can sympathize, I recall the ever present pain I went through when my hips were "going south"....Just know that, if wishes could heal, you'd be feeling better already! Gentle Hugs, Penny

    Pain is so debilitating and it's impossible to think about anything else. So sorry that's where you're at just now: really hope that the TENS offers some relief.
