I've said it here before, and I'll say it again...housework is hazardous to your health!
Since Saturday I've been having more muscle spasms that made the one of a couple of weeks ago seem like a walk in the park. These actually required an ambulance and ER visit. ...sigh...
God bless EMTs. I kept apologizing for having to call them, and they said, "Ma'am, we get lots of calls where people don't really need us, but you weren't one of them. You definitely needed an ambulance." Okay. I can let go of my guilt.
Ex-rays showed no structural damage, so they diagnosed severe strain, the ER doctor gave me some mega muscle relaxers, and I've needed them. I went to the chiropractor yesterday, and today, and I will again tomorrow. That has helped a lot. I made it through today without muscle relaxers or pain pills...still moving carefully. I think I'll be back at work tomorrow.
Good thing as one of my co-workers shattered her knee on Sunday, and will be out for quite awhile. Kind of makes me feel guilty for whining about a muscle spasm.
Anyway, all this to say that I can no longer keep putting health and fitness on the back burner of my life. I have to start exercising regularly again...lose some weight...build some strength in the core muscles supporting my back.
There. I said it. Feel free to call me on it if I don't seem to be following through.
