A couple of weeks ago, I started going off my pain meds and muscle relaxers because I was really starting to feel better. Then along comes mom-in-law and brother-in-law for what was supposed to be a five day visit and of course they need to stay with us. We have only one extra bedroom, so brother-in-law camped out in the living room - in my recliner. They kept postponing leaving and ended up staying here for eleven days and just left this morning.
After they were here for about four days, I really started hurting again and I'm now back on the meds. The pain is back like it was a month ago. I was so happy that I was starting to feel like I was really going to be pain-free, only to have it come back.
Even though I really love them, I think having them here took a toll on my body because of the stress. Has anyone ever had this happen?
PS - the good news is that I got my first tattoo because my brother-in-law is a tattoo artist. It's a little red heart with a black dog paw print in it in honor of my best little buddy, Merc, who you can see in my avitar.
