Its been a while again, since I’ve been here but I have just been busy sorting through drawers and putting bits on ebay which once the children had heard about also gave me a load of their gear to put on ebay!!!
Then, last week I went and did something really silly. I was watching my husband playing tennis on the wii game and thought I would like a go and although he wasn’t that keen on me playing it, I managed to convince him that I could not possibly hurt myself with something so light.
Anyway – you’ve guessed it – I spoke tooooooo soon and on my fourth hit I felt something go in my back which wasn’t like a disc pain more like a nerve pain – just like someone had stabbed me in the back !!!! Will I ever learn ? I only wanted to have a bit of fun.
Well since then I’ve had to rest up and take extra medication and use heat pads as within a couple of hours the knock on effect to the rest of my spine was dreadful. By Saturday I’d already decided that if it was no easier by today that I would go direct to the Hospital and ask for an epidural or anything extra they could give me for pain.
Fortunately it seems to have settled a bit now and I’m coping on the medication I’m on but I was sooooo frustrated and mad with myself for putting myself in that position and although I know my family love me to bits, they were all cross because of the way I did it.
The nerve pain I get shoots down into my big toe but only comes on after bending over but you would be surprised how many times you do that, and I think that might push me to go back for some type of injection as a pain killer can’t really work on a nerve pain.
Still, their are people out there who are much worse off than me so I will keep my chin up and get on with it and might even start making my own Christmas cards today, propped up with cushions and using trays on cushions to work on – there’s always a way to do it somehow.
