I wasn’t positive what I’d be writing about at present however I did not suppose it will be this, once more.  However dang it, simply after I suppose I am doing higher with my herniated disc, and that the ache I’ve each day is tolerable (albeit with Gabapentin), I’ve a day like Saturday that jogs my memory that I’m not achieved with this but, not by a protracted shot.

I did some issues on Saturday that WERE NORMAL, sheesh, however by late afternoon I used to be hurting way more than I’ve been, and it saved getting worse.  And since I did some various things, I do not know what was the wrongdoer, or if it was merely a case of overdoing it, which, come ON.

Doable culprits:

I sat on a metallic chair at Blue Baker for a few hours.  However I have been doing this for a month now with out additional ache, so I do not suppose this was it.

Then I vacuumed the tile flooring for the primary time in months (Jeff has been caring for this since my harm).  Vacuuming is on the “do not do that” checklist, however we have now a Dyson cordless stick vac, which is tremendous light-weight.  I did not even push it backwards and forwards like I usually would; as an alternative I held it near my physique and stroll ahead in straight traces.  OK a few occasions I bent ahead to get it underneath some furnishings, however I labored at doing it with the least potential motion.  I did not even empty the grime cylinder – I had Jeff do this as a result of it does take effort to pop it open.

After lazing round for just a few hours, Jeff and I went to the mall to see a pop-up artwork present placed on by our native artwork league.  It is a small mall and we did not have far to stroll to get to the present, which was in an empty storefront.  The present wasn’t enormous and we made the circle a few occasions however did not see something that wanted to return dwelling with us.

Then we walked slightly well past the artwork present and located a Van’s retailer, which I had to enter as a result of it jogged my memory of California.  After perusing every thing and discovering a cool t-shirt with the California bear on it however they solely had mediums in girls’s sizes that are too small for me so sadly I left it there, I knew I might had sufficient as a result of I used to be beginning to limp.  So we walked again to our automotive.

Since we had been actually shut, we drove to Bahama Buck’s to get sno-cones.  After a number of 100+ diploma days with extra to return, we thought that sounded good.  So did about 100 different folks however fortunately we acquired in earlier than many of the mob and Jeff was in a position to snag a desk whereas I ordered.  Jeff took this image of me as a result of he stated my enamel had been turning inexperienced from my blue coconut sno-cone:

No inexperienced enamel right here…my tongue was blue, although.  However you’ll be able to see the road of individuals snaking across the place.  Additionally I put a filter on this shot as a result of mannnnn, was I trying tough.  Freckles and wrinkles and no make-up, oh my!

We deliberate out meals for the approaching week after which we went dwelling as a result of I used to be actually hurting with sharper pains than I’ve had shortly.  This was disappointing as we figured the strolling ended up being an excessive amount of for me despite the fact that we would solely walked a brief distance.

I just about spent the remainder of the night on my zero gravity chair, watching Veronica Mars – however hey, I lastly made it to the latest season!

Sure we have now a garden chair in the lounge – it provides to the decor, do not you agree?  Really it is folded up towards the wall subsequent to the patterned chair after I’m not utilizing it, however the colour is correct for the room, at the least.

I went to mattress in numerous ache, pondering that the strolling had prompted this.  After I wakened on Sunday I remembered that I might vacuumed earlier than the stroll.  So…was it the vacuuming?  Or the strolling?  Or each?  It might be good to know, however I am not able to strive both anytime quickly whereas I get previous this flare of ache.  Oh and talking of ache, I forgot that I may have taken an extra Gabapentin when the ache kicked in, as an alternative of ready to take my regular dose later within the night.  Thanks uncomfortable side effects of Gabapentin for that…I forgot that I am an energetic participant in my ache administration.

Very last thing:  On the urging of lots of people, I’ve made an appointment with a neurosurgeon for a session about my herniated disc.  I don’t wish to have surgical procedure.  However, as my PT identified, it is likely to be good to know what’s really helpful, and if I did not have surgical procedure now (if the physician does suppose it’s a necessity), what would I be in just a few years?  The appointment is not for an additional month; I am going to let you know the way it goes afterward.
