Oh my aching back

I'm starting to get annoyed at my back because for the past week + it's been keeping me down...literally. Over the weekend I had to stay on my back to give it a rest dr.'s orders. And it still hasn't totally let up. It's the weirdest thing because I honestly don't know what I did to make it hurt so bad, but it feels like I have a super nasty kinked neck in my back (that's the only way I can describe it). I've been to the accupunturist a couple of times (which is always a fun experiement in interpreting accents, they're Chinese and super nice) and the chiropractor...it's helped but still is there. Blah! I've come to realize that I get rather impatient when my body isn't up to par....I don't like feeling like crap (who does really) but I'm a bad sick person. I hate just laying around when there's so much to do in my home, not to mention a very rambunctious todler to keep up with. Well, I'm hoping that soon I will be able to get back into the swing of things and stop being a whiny cripple...boo hoo for me.

Its from the car accident with Mary, they should never have put us in those neck braces and strapped us to those boards. . . .

My sister just woke up one day with a swollen disk and couldn't walk or anything. She had to do physical therapy and everything. You should ask if there are any excercises you should be doing. When I was so sick while I was pregnant I pretty much had to sit in the middle of the floor and let Owen run around me to mske him think I was playing with him.

I've always said that it's a good thing to get a back ache every once in a while. It reminds us that we are not spineless!

Nothing a few shots of burbon won't cure i'm sure. At least that's what i've heard anyway.

Hope you're doing better.
