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...

Ah, the infamous SITS muscles (I'm a massage therapist). I feel for you. This is so painful.


I think we, as women really do make heart connections via the 'net.'

Happy Valentines to you too!

Thanks DJan...I AM GOING on the trip REGARDLESS!! Today I am huffing, puffing and grunting doing my best to keep myself busy because when I sit or try to read or type I hurt more....

Oh T...you are such a sweetheart!! What a wonderful thing to say and offer...(typical T thoughtfulness!!!) I would gladly and happily take you up on it!!! I may have to put on two of these IH Packs...

Kass...Oh I used to be a massage tech in CA. I got a 100 hours of Swedish Massage. I LOVED IT and wanted to make it my vocation...but licensing is a PITA!!! They have a big school here in NV....

I sure feel I have made some really quality friends with the bonus of being CREATIVE...which is my most favorite friend...one who loves to talk, laugh and be creative. Oh yeah...and eat...

Big hugs to all you ladies...love you all!!!

Hope you feel better soon and that it doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the meet-up.

What a dreadful thing to happen to you - back pain can be a killer. You seem to have developed such a positive attitude towards it which is admirable. Over 40 years of pain is a hell of a thing.

Enjoy your trip Good that the pain is not preventing you from going but remember those packs..........
