Back Pain.......

Monday, November 28, 2016

After getting "almost" back into my routine after a lengthy vacation......last weekend I spent most of my time on my livingroom floor and heating pad along with taking muscle relaxants to ease the spasm's that my back has been in. Why this has happened...I don't know.

Yes I had a injury over 4 years ago but I honestly thought I would never see any more problems. I had healed and have never had any re-occurence's since, not even after having a hip fully replaced due to deterioration from osteoarthritis.

Now, the spasm's and pain I feel is very disheartening, I can't even stand and do the dishes.
I can sit at my desk but...I want to go to the gym...except I know I would not be able to do anything, except maybe walk a little on the treadmill.
My worst fear is not being able to go for a few days and I know that will lead to maybe a couple of weeks before I feel comfortable.....and I know that time will lead to me overeating.
I am getting depressed just thinking that far in advance !

    Stop! Get up off the floor! Move around walk, bend just move, don't give in we all hurt when we start or start over. That's normal you don't have to do a marathon just do something other than sit. If standing and fishing burns calories anything can

    Don't give in. Even if you can't exercise, keep eating right and when you are feeling better start working out again
