07:35 pm: Way Too Much Pain

Last night I watched a DVD and then read the paper. I got to bed to read by 2am and stopped at 5am with the alarm set to 1pm. I was awake a lot, including coming out to have some hot tea, which made me nauseated near the end of the mug (again, today). I hurt a lot when I moved but it didn't show how much until I got up at 2:30pm.

That pain in my right lower back that I've been complaining about? I can barely move today. Or breathe. Or lift my right arm. Or do anything where I'm not supported. I may have to skip bookgroup, and after I read that stupid book. I did pull the muscle relaxant the primary gave me -- Robaxin -- because I haven't changed meds or anything and even though it didn't work for my left shoulder, maybe it will work for this.

I feel like I killed myself doing laundry and now I'm trying to convince myself that I really do need to scoop the litter boxes. I may try pulling a chair in, although standing up/sitting down hurts. I ordered pizza so I didn't have to think about food, and shuffled sideways (like Igor) to the door.

I hope the heating pad will help later.

I hope you're doing better today! I thought more about Friday, and I didn't start to hurt so much until two things I did one after the other. First I took the 2005 bills & taxes folder and the box for my stroke material out to the store room, and I couldn't get them solidly in places and had to move things. Second, I picked up the three-liter pot and lid from the dishwasher and turned, still bent over, and put them in the drawer under the stove. So I'm not sure what caused it. It's not as bad as Friday, probably because I'm taking the muscle relaxant, but it still really hurts when I move.
