Pick it up

The quiet one, originally uploaded by lepiaf.geo.

I missed a post yesterday because my back when into a spasm. Oh my goodness! Where did that pain come from?!

I was doing nothing and suddenly my left hip goes crazy. It was OK for a while, took some strong drugs, went to sleep, went for a walk and felt OK-ish. But overnight was terrible: no sleep, can't move much, and drugs that seem to wipe out my mind.

I'm staying home from work today but seeing the doctor this afternoon. Goodness knows what she'll suggest.

Ack! I just dropped my toast on the floor. I need a pick-up-stick-grabber!

Although I love staying home from work it's terrible when there's a deadline that relies on me (which I have on Wednesday). Maybe I could limp into work tomorrow, lock myself in my room and get it done and limp home.

Enough about me! (Oh, but it is about me?)

I do have stuff to blog about (Carly from Nest Studio was featured in the Sunday paper; I received a copy of Sew Hip magazine, some new books, fabric, opshop finds...) but I it will mean getting out the camera and the scanner. I'll have to leave them to another time.

this happened to me recently. do lots of stretches, rest as much as possible and try to do small walks (i had to walk up and down my hallway). it took a little while, but i got better within a week which is better than most.
i've ordered a sew hip - i can't wait to get my copy!
ps the above advice was administered to me by my physio (husband) and it worked! i should listen to him more often. lol

I had a similar thing too quite recently, I pulled the muscles on the side of my spine, and was unable to MOVE for days! Hope it's mending - my Dr just gave me Panadine Forte, of which I could only take a couple of, if you were just around the corner I'd drop them over to you!

Hope you feel better soon. Backs are the worst! Even without the mind-numbing drugs back pain messes with your brain. So hard to have coherant thought with back pain!
