After the dishwasher incident last night, life took a tailspin .........I slept on the sofa last night and almost all day today, rotating ice packs, and advil every four hours. Much better this evening, but what a way to spend my birthday. Yep, today was my birthday. I have never spent one on the sofa but I suppose there is a first for every thing.
I never really had back issues, so this "incident" has been a transformation for me.........never will I take for granted a healthy back.......I have a strong core because of all the yoga I do, cannot imagine going through this episode without the yoga background. I have eaten yogurt, fresh fruit, nuts and LOTS of water. The pain was so bad last night it caused nausea, but by this evening I did some VERY GENTLE stretches.
Since stopping the treatments two months I have felt so much better, more energy and stronger so even on the sofa today, I had so much to be grateful for. It is hard to believe I have walked this earth 63 years.......time has passed so quickly. I understand more and more some of the things my mom told me before she passed, one in particular......." if I don't look in the mirror, there are days I don't know how old I really am........and then some days I know exactly how old I am." ;)
Wishing you all a restful Monday night.
