Measurements and Limitations (Plus Bonus NSFW Egg WTFkry.)

Couldn’t really think of anything in particular to really blog about today. I ended up going to two doctor appointments – one for a growing sinus infection (a week long headache is too long, thanks), and one for the back doc.

I was supposed to get another round of shots, actually – but I declined. Oddly enough, the last few weeks, the spine has been fairly stable. I’m not sure why – I’m not doing anything different, and the two weeks before that I was a total mess. Painkillers every day. And then –  *poof*  – things aligned and the pain lessened.

It didn’t stop.

Nothing ever *really* stops it, but when you live in chronic discomfort you do find that certain levels are more tolerable than others.  I’ve even stopped going to the chiro as much.  I don’t know. Over-manipulation is probably just as bad as not manipulating it enough and I’d like to give my body a chance to regain its own equilibrium.

Now, normally, I’d attempt to start walking on my treadmill again or some sort of yoga or whatever else I’ve tried in the past. But this time, I’m just gonna let it go for now. Every time I start feeling better, I attempt to do something exercise-based and the spine just falls apart again.

I dislike accepting physical limitations. I really do.

But I’m also really tired of not being able to function on a normal basis. So we’ll see what happens after a few more weeks of “stable.” (I’m hoping to start a new IV therapy in a few weeks as well – some sort of new process that involves injecting magnesium straight into the bloodstream to help with muscle relaxation. I’ve got a co-worker that’s on it and is having really good results. Since I suspect some of my issues are being caused by a constant firing of muscles, I figure it can’t hurt to try.)

Of course, I always have the best of intentions with this stuff, and undoubtedly my spine will betray me in fabulous fashion at  some point anyway, but we’ll see. (Between a trip to an amusement park this upcoming weekend and con travel, I’m sure things will fall apart.

But in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy the moment.

Also – not to kill the mood, enjoy this lovely bit of egg wtfkry.

(Wait for it.)

  1. I would love to hear how the IV therapy works. I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia so muscle pain and spasms are a constant for me too. I’ll try any treatment once to see if it will make my days easier. Accepting life with physical limitations when nothing ‘looks’ wrong is an annoying battle that never goes away. Heres to wishing you many days with lesser pain. **lifting coffee mug in salute**

      Yeah – I thought I might have Fibro for a while (I’ve got Interstitial Cystitis and VV as well, and those are often tied in with fibro). I don’t, but I’m still in a lot of overall chronic hurt. I’ll definitely post about my experience with it! 😀
