It's ...

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Funny, in a weird way, that I never really quite know how my back is going to be from day to day. Yesterday I took a rest day, I was exhausted. Today, I got up, but my back was uncooperative, and kept me in seeing as it hurt too much to drive myself, and I needed my medications. I wish it were a little more predictable. So, a second rest day is in the wings. Hopefully it will be back to a more "normal" tomorrow morning when I get up to go to work.

At least Friday's more "normal" enabled me to enjoy going to work for a good 6 hour shift, enabled me to go out to the movies without my back going into spastic pain in the middle of the movie. It let's me know that the future is brighter, and it is getting better. Just there will be the days when it's not as "normal" as I want it to be.

It's slowly getting better.
That's pretty good, even from the standpoint of taking another rest day. This week, I am inserting 2 rest days (Tuesday and Wednesday) in between working, and have physical therapy on Tuesday and Thursday midday.

    I hope you feel better soon.
    If I sit and watch a movie, I have to move around a bit to loosen up. Maybe ask your PT person about the rest days. I know mine is much different to yours but I do not like to sit in a big comfy chair too long but when I sit up straight in my computer chair it is easier. I dislike riding in cars in that recumbent position. I need the minivan with the upright seat to keep my back up straight and supported. I have 8 years to analyze my back and it has mostly become readable by now. Take care Pat in Maine. I need to take an indoor long walk it is raining here but we need it.
