When it rain it pours

Thursday, February 03, 2011

I'm not complaining per say about my life because things could be much worse. However just when it seem that I've gotten this thing down(making right choices) something comes alone and well, slow me down or shall I say hinder my progress. I was in a accident a few months back. I did hurt my back, but I was told that it wasn't broken or fractured, it may have been just sprung or maybe a pulled muscle.

Now here I'm today, under a doctor who is saying no lifting over 10lb, no standing for long periods of time, No shifting(meaning the truck). I'm now on muscle relaxers and meds for imflamation and pain. that seem to be swelling me up I think. It's not what I'm eating, It has to be maybe a side effect from the meds. Anyway that is what I'm doing until I get that MRI, I 'm feeling a little better as I was working through the pain, not knowing what is going on really with my back. I hope it is something simple that can be delt with without surgery. That is the last thing I need.

It's hard everyday dealing with this thing, but I tell myself this too shall pass. So while I'm focusing on healthy choices , I 'm trying to keep my head up at what these meds are doing. Hoping that everything will work itself out soon. I still believe I will reach my goals, I still believe in me.

    Hey Faith!

    Sorry ot hear about your dilemma. I know about medications. I take probably 11 or 12 a day of this or that for one thing or the other. Healthy choices have begun to show some results for me... lost 3 lbs this week. I am sending you good thoughts and prayers. You have such a great attitude that I am sure it will all work out.

    Blessings and peace,

    Sorry to hear your dilemma. But getting better is your top priority. If it's the meds that are swelling you up........this is temporary. Seeing that you are limited in what you can do I'm sure if you keep that chin up and eat healthy when you can get back to a normal lifestyle all of your goals will be met sooner than you think. Hang in there and keep staying positive. This is a medical set back and it needs to be dealt with so you can go forward. Take care. emoticon

    Do what you have to do to get better. Remember to ice injuries and I have found physical therapy helps with pain. Good Luck
