Hope you are all well. The time change is kicking my butt.

I awoke to find that my IT band overuse injury has apparently spread to the other leg. :-( It doesn't have the same excruciating pain, but it's very sore to touch. I'm now trying to put together my own home remedy routine since I only see the physical therapist twice a week. They are reluctant to treat my leg because my main focus there is supposed to be neck/mid back/sacroiliac injury and I just can't afford a copay the 4 times I week they want me to go, thus everything seems to be taking forever to heal. So, home it is.

I had to go back to the doc because they wouldn't refill my meds without talking to one. She gave me motrin for the injury and said to take 800 mg 3x/day for 10 days to get rid of all inflammation for the injuries. So, we will see. I'm on day one.

Today, I started off great! I'm having a salad for bf. I massaged and iced both IT bands. I'm about to stretch. I'm trying to write up a meal plan that also declutters my pantry. I've had third of my water and remembered to take my bp med.

I start work on Wed. I'm dreading it. I both like and dislike this job. But I need to do it. But, since my day time will no longer be my own I will have to meal plan. I won't have time to cook, barely to garden, or do things around the house. I have to come up with a way the everything will flow. I'm going to get a little exercise by hanging out a load of laundry in the wee hours of the morning before taking ds to school, and after work rushing to fold it and hang another.

I'm going to try to "automate" all but dinner as much as possible.

Have a wonderful day!

    Thank you all! The pt is going well, but it hurts really badly. I'm improving, very slowly.

    JavaGal47 I hope your pain eases.

    I love, love the smell of sunshine on clothing.

    Wise move to do as much planning as you can now, before you go back to work. You'll figure out something that will work for you - it may take a few adjustments, but you'll get there!

    Sounds like a great plan.
    Hope the pain subsides soon.

    Sorry to hear that you are experiencing pain. Sounds like you have a good plan in place to support yourself. Hand in there! Hopefully, the physical therapists have provided you with things you can do at home to support your recovery.

    Hi, sorry you are going through all this pain.
    I always loved to hang clothes. Been many years since did.
    They always smelled so nice & fresh. Those days are gone for ever.
    I too am having a lot of pain, shoulder wrist & neck.
    Daughter is insisting I take pain pills which I hate to do, but I will do
    it for today and hope for the best.
    Sending emoticon , love, Betty
