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.
