So happy but so hurt at the same time

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

I am so happy to see I have so many people following my blogs or at least commenting on them. The comments really help to keep me going. In my line of work (home daycare) I don't get to socilize with a lot of adults very often so I love to log on and see that adults are talking to me. Call it strange but that is why I love checking email each day and logging on to here.

I love the kids but I need the adult time too. So nap time if all goes well and after daycare hours I am on here looking to see who has emailed and if anyone is up for chatting.

Hurt though cause I hurt my back yesterday. Don't know how I did it but it still hurts today. Ibuprofen and hot packs are my best friends today. Luckily I can move today. But I hope it will be all better tommarrow. First a week and a half of sore very painful cramping calfs from a 6 mile fast walk while on vacation due to error in ship excursions. One day pain free and then my back goes out.
At first I though it was just my seperated disc again that I have had since sometime in high school, but it is all the left side of my back and down into the left hip.

Last night was just awful. I was watching heavy on A &E and laying on the floor with a hot pack, all was feeling better until I had to get up to reheat the hot pack. I could bearly breathe let alone move cause the pain went into my lungs and all the way down to my feet on both sides. I don't know what it is but it is managable today as long as I don't lift the toddlers or bend too far down.

    I hear you on the insurance issue. I'm in the same boat. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. If you haven't tried alternating hot and cold, you could try that. My chiro has had me do that before.
    Glad we can be your social outlet:-) I have done daycare before too. (sometimes still feel like I am- for high school students:-) I'm kidding. I love my job, but sometimes even older kids require more supervision that you would think.

    Well it is almost 8 pm here and I am feeling better, from about 4:30 pm till know I have been able to bend a little more and don't have too much pain except in my feet and ankles from the long day as always.

    For those that said go see a doctor, I wish I could. I have no health insurance and can't afford insurance. I can get state insurance if I were pregnant but that in itself is so stupid. I can only get medical coverage if I am pregnant and that is only for a limited time. Granted I want to have more kids but after all the medical issues I had with each of the two kids I have been blessed to have.

    For the one who asked about the ciropractor. I did used to go to the ciroprater twice a week and had an awsome ciropractor but again without a good insurance program I can't afford that one either.

    You might want to see a doctor.. sound very much like a pulled muscle or sciatica . That can be very painful indeed..
    hope all is well soon ... Susie emoticon

    Have you ever seen a chiropractor? I know mine works wonders for me, but you really have to get a good one! Also you ever try those icy hot pads that you peel off and put on your back? they work soooooooo good and get right into the muscles, you might want to wear one to work... I'd continue the motrin... but if it gets any worse you might want to see a doctor....
    But honestly the chiropractor if u never tried one , they can be miracle workers!
    I had a friend who had 2 physicians tell her she needed back surgery, she came to me in tears and asked for my chiropractors number... she saw him for 3 months and was fine! just have to find a good one a lot of quacks out there...
    Good luck to you!

    emoticon Ouch. You may want to really considr going to the DR if it does not get better in 3 days. Or try alternating heat and cold packs. Either way hope you fell better soon. Take Care
