I do not like taking medication of any kind. Thank goodness I do not have to take any daily meds, except for some vitamins required by my gastric bypass surgery. Unfortunately, I do not even take those. I know I need to start though.
Sunday morning I was putting Lil Sis down from the changing table. I felt a "ripple" across my lower back and then intense pain that made me gasp. Literally, it took my breath away. I've pulled a muscle in my back before but this time it was much worse. I suffered through Sunday night, was tempted to go to the ER but insurance made me wait until I could get to Statcare the next morning. I trust the doctors there more than an ER doc anyway.
The pain was so intense I was more than willing to take the meds they loaded me up with; a nice steroid shot to the buttocks, an anti-inflammatory, pain killer and muscle relaxer. When I take all of those I go straight to La La Land for a few hours. But it sure is some good sleeping and all the meds have improved by back tremendously.
I hate not being able to help with the grandbabies. They don't understand why Mamaw can't pick them up either.
I'll try to make it at work tomorrow. We'll just see how it goes. I'll load up on all the medication one more time tonight and drift away...to La La Land once again.
