If some of you didn't know,
I hurt my back while at lake powell on the tube last week. I thought it was just a sore muscle so I have just been taking it kinda easy this last week. Well, it got so bad today that I honestly could not breath. It kept getting worse and I couldn't sleep. If I would take a deep breath, it felt like my rib was about to break. I made it through the first two hours of church today, and then had to leave. I was literally having a panic attack. I would get so frustrated at night because there was no comfortable way for me to sleep. not standing, sitting up, laying down, twisted, in a ball, nothing would make the pain go away. I probably cried my self to sleep every night this last week. Then, embarrassed myself when I fell apart crying on the phone to my sister, and then at my moms house today. Joy. I hate crying in front of people almost more than anything, yet, I do it all the time. I got a blessing from my husband and after that, I briefly was able to calm down and stop crying from the pain.
I decided to have my husband take me to instacare today. We have no insurance. So, after paying a 75 dollar copay, we find out that it's not a kidney infection, and no broken rib, just a back that is very out of alignment. It could also very well be something more serious, so they are sending me to a specialist this week. The doctor today made me hold my arms crossed around me while he turned me weird ways and popped my back about 5 times. he was pushing SOOO hard to pop my back that he was shaking. I was just crying away while my husband was staring in awe at how hard he had to push to get my back to do anything. The doc said he could feel my back out of wack from the outside and see it, but he also said he wanted to send me to the back specialist if the pain doesnt subside this week. How did this even happen is the question I have been asking myself all week. My body is not cut out for anything crazy.
I am on muscle relaxers, loratab, and naproxyn. Yuck.
So, I am laying in bed with a heating pad on my back, sweating, and waiting for the meds to knock me out. If the meds do the job, tonight will be my first night of good sleep in a week. (please do the job meds, sincerely, me.)
As I was just finishing up a scrapbook I am working on, I sneezed.
Oh the pain it brought my back.
PLEASE don't sneeze or cough again until this pain has subsided. Thanks.
Can't I just go ONE year without having something happen to my body?
