I am home from work today. Still laid up with back troubles.
A very good friend of mine who is a professional masseuse came over last night and worked me over. (Have I mentioned how much I love my friends?!!)
It hurt like heck but helped. She and I ended up laughing hysterically mid massage as I'm very ticklish and kept waffling between yelps of pain and squirming laughter.
I lay in the hot soothing whirlpool afterwards til I resembled my 82year old mother...
Alas, the pain slowly crept back during the evening. I'm glad I took the day off of work.
I can (finally) sleep at night but it's fitful as the pain awakens me and demands I move into another sleeping position.
I feel like a 5'4 flopping Salmon dressed in Hello Kitty PJ's.
For those of you who live with chronic back pain...I commiserate deeply with you.
I know this will eventually pass once the inflamed nerves settle down.
It's just hard not to sulk in the mean time.
