I felt it coming, actually...my left foot had started going numb every time I sat down, and my back had just been increasingly painful. I told my pain doc I thought it was one of my disks bugging me.
Then the other day I was taking care of my horses and *pop* there it goes.
So my range of motion is significantly restricted now. Things have been going downhill for a few months how, mostly because I have just been sick- ever since my high blood pressure diagnosis, I have been trying to find a medication that didn't make me really ill. I haven't been riding, and my back has been suffering. I finally decided about 2 weeks ago to sell my horse (I have 2, one is my daughter's) and have been really devistated about the decision, but as things go from bad to worse the chances that I'm going to get back to riding seem less and less, and I just can't care for both horses when I'm not feeling well.
Anyway, so he is leaving day after tomorrow to go to a sales barn. I have shed more tears than I thought I had, really. I'm not sure what I'm going to have to bring me back this time.
