Almost no Photo
Today, I have been in that much pain I almost didn’t take a photo today, which would have been the first day in this project that I would have missed (even when I had my leg operation back in March, I still took a photo, just after my op). I am a stubborn mule though and even though I was in pain, I was determined to take a photo, its not a good one, but still…it’s a photo! One of some berries in our garden.
I really struggled to physically get out of bed today, it hurts so much when I sit. It doesn’t hurt so much when I stand or walk, but when I lay down I am sore and when I sit, I feel like someone is stabbing me literally, in the back.
I was fortunate to be able to get an appointment today with a local physiotherapist, who was really good. He thinks that I may have torn a ligament in my lower back. I have some anti-inflammatory tablets, and he has strapped my back up and I basically have to rest! I can’t sit, so I have had to tell both my jobs that I won’t be in for the rest of the week, which I feel really bad about, but there’s not a lot that I can do about it.
I have another physio appointment on Friday, so hopefully, by then, my back will be heaps better (I am really hoping for this to be the case).
The good thing was, I was able to walk to my physio today and walking actually helped me a little, so tomorrow, I will try and walk for 10 minutes, to try and loosen it a little.
