post 4th of july

I am still paying for the 4th, I must have over did it, I did have a nice time here with my family, but the price I have to pay is terrible.

today is the 12th, My pain has been a 10 and wont let up.
esp my lower back, ( I had surgery there in 97).

Even my perocets dont even touch the pain.

I ususally am pretty positive, but now I am grouchy.. grrr,

i am just sore all over, tired, cant get anything done, yet I try to hard..


maybe things wont hurt as bad tomorrow

Hi Tammy,

I tried to do m yself in too. I'm sorry you're still feeling so badly. Try to rest and watch something funny if tv is all you're up to. Sometimes I don't even feel like keeping my eyes open but I listen and it makes me laugh.

Hope you get rested up soon - Andy

Re: post 4th of july

thanks Andy,

I have been resting alot, and no relief, going to dr, wed, I am just a bit afraid, I pulled or slip a bit of disc in my back, just praying i didnt. I havent felt this low back pain for awhile, ouch,, when i sit, i stiffen up so fast,, I feel 99.

...and the stress of worring a bit doesnt help the fibro on top of it..

I do laugh though, trying to keep good spirits..

I laugh because I get so stuck in my chair and cant get up,, lol...
guess it could be worse..

Hi Tammy,

You poor thing. I hope the doctor has some relief for you tomorrow. And I hope it's not your back. My Mom has degenerative disc problems in her neck and back and I kno whow she suffers.

Hang in there, one more day to doctor - Andy

Hi Tammy--

I've been through those miserable 'fun' weekends also and will have pain for days after. All I do is rest. I feel that's all I can do, just take the meds and rest.

Don't despair--it will pass. Doesn't it always?

Unfortunately it always finds a way back.

Just wait it out and rest, rest, rest,
