I was fine yesterday. Really I was. After my church Small Group meeting I came home tired, did my back exercises and it was aching so I took a Valium and went to bed.
This morning I wake up to the sound of yelling and couldn’t figure out what was going on — oh yeah…that was me yelling. Massive super back spasm – the kind that takes your breath away back spasm. I honestly thought Freddie Krueger was ripping his lovely nails through my side. Ack.
Gingerly I managed to get out of bed & not wake up Devoted Spouse — me and EmmaLou made it downstairs and I found the stash of the good pharmaceuticals – said crap I don’t care if I have an empty stomach – gimme the drugs now. Got icepack and hobbled to comfy chair in search of….well… comfort.
Then I had to pee. Oh dear Gussie – that meant I had to actually get up and then get down and get up again and oh how I wished I had Depends. Yes ladies and gentlemen it was a Kodak moment – or actually I should say I would have made a hit on YouTube.
Skipped 2d cup of coffee. More ice. Another Valium. More moaning.
It was fun watching me get dressed 2day. The things we take for granted….like being able to pull up one’s own shorts. That should be easy. I’m here to tell you a back spasm negates pulling up shorts – I managed but I’m not telling you the details of what I had to do with the cane to acquire my pants. Ack.
It’s funny. It has to be funny – coz that’s my life. One minute I’m fine; the next I resemble Maxine at 110. Criminy. Did I mention I have some really good meds for this occasion? giggling.
So – I’d write something very amusing for ya’ll today but my brain is literally fuzzed on drugs.
Stop in tomorrow. Oh and feel free to leave comments that I’m rambling or raving or whatever – coz I promise you once I post this, I’ll have no memory I even did it. I think….sigh…
