Back update

So, I’m still not really mobile. After a horrible and painful Friday (falling down in agony), I was not doing well by Saturday morning. Ended up calling the on-call doctor on Saturday. She called in some different meds for me which seem to help some, but not enough.

Went to church yesterday for Easter with my parents and it was not a good experience. First off, mom had to help me get dressed since it was not easy getting my pants on. I felt like I was helpless and did not like that feeling at all. When we got to church, I could not get comfortable no matter what position I tried in that chair. I did manage to make it through the Pastor’s sermon thankfully, but it wasn’t easy. The drive home was not a good one. I was very uncomfortable sitting in the car. Took a lot out of me just getting to and from church.

I rested the rest of Sunday, mostly drifting in and out of sleep as the meds do cause drowsiness. I didn’t mind that since it allowed me to really relax and not have to deal with my back. Woke up today and despite feeling somewhat better, it didn’t take long before my body started expressing it’s unhappiness to me. Thankfully, my back hasn’t spasmed more than a couple of times, but I’m also taking it very easy. Now, I’m just waiting for the doctor’s office to call me about getting an MRI done or something to hopefully get a better idea of what is going on.

Honestly, I cannot wait until this crud goes away and I can get on with my life. I want to not only be able to be myself again and do what I want and need to do, but I want to get back out there with my running and workouts. This lying around the house business is the pits.
