They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Monday I had a freak throwing out my back moment. I thought it would go away and spent the day in bed. Then it got worse on Tuesday and I had to go to the ER because I could barely walk. Side Note: The ER I go to is the same one featured in the movie The Fugitive with Harrison Ford. Yes, folks, our ER is freaking famous. I got the rest of the week off on bedrest. So suffice it to say, I have been doing nothing but feeling sorry for myself and taking the drugs prescribed to me.

Friday I go see a sports doctor who will hopefully help me get better. I have been sort of working from home but I could only do work stuff and not blog stuff. Sigh, I am not even 50 yet and I am falling apart at the seams.


  1. I hope you can continue some therapy to strengthen your back so this doesn't happen again. Sorry, girl!

  2. Oh geez, i know, I workout all the time, and i pulled a muscle in my butt, stretching.

    stretching. seriously? My mom loves to tell me how it will only get worse the older i get.

    Hope you are feeling better soon! back injuries are the WORST!

  3. Oh no! Are you feeling any better? I also did something to my back last week... a pinched nerve, it seems. By Sunday night I could barely walk. My legs kept giving out. 9 days later, and I'm finally better. Still a little sore, but nothing excruciating. I hope your appt with the sports doc went well!

  4. Ay bendito! Feel better amiga!
