Oh My ACHING Back!!!
I may not be online much.... Apparently these purging is more lifting and taxing than I bargained for..
My left shoulder blade, the bottom tip, (my Infraspinatus muscle) fills like there is a HUGE BUTCHER KNIFE sticking out of it. It is the same shoulder where I had my slip and fall two years ago, this coming July.
My left side has always been my worst. I was in a bad car crash Christmas Eve, 1966. My sister and I were going Christmas shopping in my 65 VW bug and were rear ended by a man who was too busy fighting with his wife and did not see us stopped ahead of him.
Luckily, I was looking in my review mirror and saw his head turned sideways, yelling at a woman. I had heard some where to take your foot off the brake, should this ever happen, so I did. I also reached out instinctively with my right arm to protect my sister in the passenger seat.
My engine to my VW was in my back seat and I tore all the muscles in the left side of my back. I was in therapy and doing back exercises for over a year. My sister was sore, but fine.
It hurts to sit and type, so I am off to take a Motrin and an ice pack...
Happy Valentines day to everyone in case I am not back in time...
We are leaving for Laughlin on Sunday for a couple days. We are going to meet up with one of my blogging buddies, Jeanie from Living Consciously. I have three days to get better...but I am taking my ICY HOT PACKS just in case...
