OMG... My Aching Back...

Quote for the day:
The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain.
I have spent the morning at the urgent care clinic being seen for my back pain that I've been having for the last 3-4+ weeks or so.  I wrote about it earlier this week...
Last night the pain in my back and right leg was so severe that it kept waking me up...there was no comfortable position.  :(    I've had it with the pain and decided that I couldn't wait until Monday to see my regular physician...I had to have relief NOW!
I am now loaded up on steriods, anti-inflammatories and a little pain pill thrown in there.  At this point, I am off of work on Monday, and will take it from there depending on how I'm feeling once the steroids and anti-inflammatory meds click in.  
It's 2:45 PM and I'm exhausted from the pain and from not getting enough sleep last night.   I'm going to lay on the bed, watch some TV and hopefully take a nap.   
When I am feeling better I will tackle more decluttering...which hopefully will be very soon.
Please check back in 24-48 hours and hopefully I'll be back among the living and back to decluttering.  
In the meantime, leave me a comment to let me know what you have "released" into the wild!


  1. Hope your feeling better.... Got rid of some old fitness books today... I never read them... NO sense keeping them.

  2. Sorry you are feeling so tough. As you know, my back ailment kicks up intermittently and ear-lier this week it was bad. Now its ok again, so I'm painting today. Stopped and went to the store and now I'm having supper (Kraut and Kielbassa from the crock pot with mashed potatoes.) Will go now and finish the last wall and that's it for today! No trash tossing today but will do double duty tomorrow. ;o) Hope you feel better real soon.

  3. I threw out my broken purse after buying a new purse. Do you know how hard it is to find a new purse that a 4-year-old can't fit into?


  4. I am very sorry your back is hurting you so badly. I really hope they can figure out how to get the pain to stop. *big hugs*
