We had my sons 16th birthday party on Saturday so you know that I over did it. I spent all Sunday and part of Monday in bed.On top of that it started to rain around 6:00pm and didnt stop until 4:00am this morning.I spent most of the night sitting on the side of the bed rocking back and forth attached to my tens unit. I prayed,walked around, took a hot shower and used the heating pad. I finally fell asleep around 4:30 am.Last night was the first night that I wanted to take more pain meds then prescribed(I didn't).I am better today but having difficulty getting around, very stiff.
My body just cant do these things anymore but I just get so tired of sitting and laying down. I feel so guilty because all I want to do is lay down in my bed. Its the only place that I am remotely comfortable, but its hard when you have 5 kids who dont fully understand your pain.While I was walking around the house I looked at the whiteboard calendar on the kitchen wall thats filled with upcoming events and I just started crying!!!! These are things you just cant miss so August is going to be a bad month for me.
Do we sit on the sidelines and watch or do we participate and deal with the consiquences later?I like to know how others deal with this issue.Thanks for letting me vent.
