I need a holiday

Right now I could really do with some of this

Oh and of course some of this

And this would just top it off perfectly

I've had a shocking weekend and i'm struggling to stay afloat. I ended up in hospital on Saturday night with my back finally giving way. I'm not even 30 and i've got the back of a 60 year old. It's just not fair. I was in hospital for only an hour when I got a phone call to say that Blake had taken a fall at home and was on his way in too because he had cut the back of his head open. Thankfully it wasn't too bad and he was his normal cheerful self. But i'm a bloody mess. I'm in so much pain, even with these pain killers it's just horrible. I hate how they make me feel but I know I have to take them. In hospital they gave me an anti-inflammatory injection which seemed to help quite a lot but it must have started to wear off because the pain seems worse today than it did yesterday. They have ordered me to have bed rest which is quite obviously not going to happen with a 4 and 2 year old in tow. I feel really helpless and the pain is starting to grate at my every being. It's been 8 long weeks of pain but this is just horrid now.

  1. Hi, I just found you from AMB and thought I would drop over.

    Sorry to hear about the pain. I actually know exactly how you feel. Last year, in the weeks after my baby was born I herniated two discs in my back. I put up with the pain, the pins and needles, discomfort sleeping and just gobbled up those pain killers. Eventually ended up with a neuro surgeon, an MRI and the decision of whether to have surgery or not. While taking some time to decide I tried a physio who specialised in injury recovery. 8 months down the track and I have a long way to go, but I am not taking any medication now. Hopefully will not need to consider the knife.
    I did wear high heels to work last week and that was a disaster!

    Lifting a toddler is now still horrid, but I don't have much choice, the kids need you, in pain or not.

    I hope the pain settles soon.

  2. Nothing worse than back pain and I have only ever suffered mildly so I hate to think how you are feeling.
    Hope the pain eases up for you soon. xx

  3. Oh gosh sounds like you've had a horrible time with it yourself. It's just the pits isn't it.
    I actually injured my back when I was younger and did damage to four of my discs in my lower back. I have had pain on and off for about 15 years but since having my kids it's got a lot worse and also my pelvis and hips are still very unstable from after my last baby. Plus i've got really bad sciatica so right now it just feels like the pain is never going to end.
    I've actually been seeing a Chiro for 7 weeks now and haven't had much results so i'm about to start Physio and I have my first appointment tomorrow for some acupuncture, fingers crossed.

    I know what you mean about having to get one with life. It's not easy telling my toddler that I can't pick him :(

    Thanks for your comments.


Please leave me some loving....
