Once or twice a year my back attacks me and leaves me feeling miserable, with no motivation. I have been fighting a hurting back for over a week now. Hence, no blog about our great time at Trinity Lake over Labor Day. No blog about last weekend spending a fun night with Kyle and Madison. I have cancelled out of a temple trip, going down to see Kelly, and a visit to a friend all because my back is so much worse when I sit down. I can't travel in a car for a distance or sit at a computer. I don't have the usual low back pain. It runs across my shoulders and knots up in the bra area. So I don't wear my bra much either. Not that anyone could tell. I have been laying down a lot, watching tv or reading. I have been using muscle relaxers and lots of tylenol and warm packs. Tomorrow I am getting a massage. Luckily, Lee has been off elk hunting so he hasn't had to listen to my complaining. It feels a tiny bit better today-I haven't used a muscle relaxer all day so I think the spasms are letting up. I think pushing guerneys and lifting patients up in beds eventually plays havoc with every nurses back. Can I please retire??
