Three weeks ago. I threw my back out bringing in firewood
And as usual. I never do things by half and was in excruciating pain.
I babied it and slowly stretch it as much as I could
And finally just as it was getting to a point that I could bear it
I got a bout of gastro
If you have ever had a sore back. You know bending is pretty hard
So having to Bend over and throw up is painful enough
But when you run out of stuff in your tummy. The dry retching is even worse!
Not to mention, the running to the loo for the other delightful symptom of tummy bugs!
Enough to said about that.
Anyway. The gastro has pass, but the back is still pretty painful
I have an ouchie massage appointment tomorrow, hopefully it will be fix then
Hopefully I’ll be on the road to wellness again after that
The biggest problem of the last three weeks is the mental side effects
Not being able to sleep, makes you tired and cranky anyway
But add the pain, and the gastro and you feel totally washed out
I hadn’t be able to leave the house for well over a week
So no swimming, no walking and not interaction with friends
Not a good combination for mental health issues
Depression and anxiety have been at record levels and the little voices in our head
That tells us all the bad things like
Your lazy, fat unlovable was absolutely screaming at me
The only silver lining was the fact that I finished all the 198 squares I needed to make the two blankets
And I’ve even finished stitching one whole blanket.
Once the second one is stitched I’ll crochet the boarders
Once again. I didn’t swim this morning.
But I did make it to coffee with the girls
And as the weather slowly gets nicer I might even be able to go outside and get me some free
But for now. I’m going to sit inside, listen to my audiobook and start stitching the second blanket
Hope all is well in your world
See ya xxx
