Tired and Grouchy

As many of you have asked how I’m getting on with my back pain I thought a little update was in order. It ranges from unbearable to manageable but either way it’s not good, I have got an appointment but not until next Friday, I could have had an earlier appointment but wanted a certain doctor who knows the history of what is going on.

I have however occurred some other complications which I won’t go into at the moment as chances are it will set me off feeling sorry for myself and I just can’t go there.

Chris does most of the stuff around the house and often tells me to sit down and even making dinner has sits between, not sure what I’d of done without him, he’s a keeper.

I have at least something to look forward to as we are off to the Proms in the park next Saturday so I will go with back rubs and heat patches in hand.

Oh yes I nearly forgot, I had my hair done yesterday and I’m now brown, blonde and copper.

Thanks for keeping me going and the concern you show, I love you all. Mwoa big smooches.

Oh bless you Jak - it's a hard thing to handle, but it sounds like , on the whole, you are 'coping'in your own way x You have done right to wait to see a doc who knows your history - but dont forget to add the other bits on when you see him/her - the more little bits they knowm the more they can help. Good luck for friday - am going myself then for the same sort of thing. Hugs to you - the hair sounds good ! x

Sorry for your pain Jak - I've been there big time! I was very, very lucky and managed to get into the Spinal Foundation who fixed my problem via laser surgery. I had the surgery 8 years ago and, touch wood, have been pain free and able since them.
I hope someone finds a fix for your problem as back pain is the worst there is.
Glad you've had your hair done, that will make you feel good!

Warm hugs

Tammy said...

All I can give you is my prayers, thoughts and good wishes that the pain will go away! Glad you have something to look forward to and a very understanding husband! Hope you show us a picture of the new do!

Hope your back get's more bearable. Have fun on your venture. Thanks for sharing with us all have a great sunday

Lori m said...

Feel better Jak, back pain is horrible, I just got home from two weeks in California, US and the weather there was low humidity, I almost felt normal. Prayers you soon find some relief. I don't know if they do Spinal Cord Simulator Implants your way but if so I'd check into it, that has been a huge plus in my life.

Hugs, Lori m

Good morning Jak,
This Sunday morning is looking lovely and fresh with the sun just coming up with some big fluffy white clouds making the sky look beautiful enough to pain, if only.
Healing light is heading your way. Yes I too suffer with my back but we won't go into my problems as my dear you have enough of your own *smile* Just know I care.
I would love to see your new hair style and colour, you sound very modern *smile*
Sending love from this golden oldie...

Have you thought of purchasing a TENS machine, it really helps me, not a cure just another aid.

My heart goes out to you Jak. I've been there, done that and worn the tee shirt. Still there, doing that and wearing the tee shirt many years on. I hope that this doctor who knows your history has something positive to offer you and that you can find some blessed relief. Full brownie points to hubby too. I've got a keeper as well I'm glad to say. :)
All the very best for Friday.

Maryann Laursen said...

Oh hun I really feel sorry for you. I know exactly how you feel, as I´ve been there for so many years, I can´t count anymore, I´m afraid.
Please knock the table at your doctor and don´t let him talk you into all kinds of things to try , cause they always will try that, and better to get them to do something real about it first as last. I let them drag me around in the nose and in the ned, I ended up having not 1, not 2 but 3 major surgeries, where they´ve replaced 7 vertebras now, and will never be able to do anything anymore, and the specialist told me, that if I had just got to them earlier, they could have replaced the first one, and saved the other 6, and I would have been able to keep on with my work, but now I have 7 stiff joints in the back and will never get rid of the pains ans will have to live on painkillers for the rest of my life, and that is NOT fun, so please don´t let them drag you there too, but insist to be sent to a specialist right away, so he´ll still be able to help you okay?
I´ll keep you in my heart and thoughts hun and really hope, you´ll get some help NOW.

Oh Jak I really cannot imagine you being grouchy, and if you are it sounds to be totally justified. Hope the Doc can help you and that you get through the time until your appointment without too much pain.

Hi Jak

I am so sorry that your back is really bad at the moment. I couldn't send message yesterday as I was stuck and couldn't move without a fraction of pain.

I'm glad you have an appointment will be thinking good thoughts for when you get to the docs.Going back to lay down now, very tired not slept for 2 nights.

Love and Hugs
