Yesterday I woke up full of determination to get a heap of things done.
I swept the floors, did the dishes, hung out a load of washing, did general chores then thought I deserved a nice cup of tea.
So I sat down and had one, then I stood up!
Nothing pinged, crunched or clicked but my back felt a wee bit sore, within half an hour I could no longer stand up straight and felt like one of those little old ladies you see who are all hunched over. It was agony to sit, stand or walk and I was exhausted just trying to do any of them. Fortunately the ex popped round to collect something so I was able to take myself off to my bed, find a semi comfortable position and get some sleep and he fed the small people.
Today after much nagging from eldest small person and a friend I phoned the Dr.
Not for the first time I was manipulated by a man but this manipulation was in a good way and when he'd finished I could actually stand up straight. I'm still sore, the Dr has prescribed me some nice strong pain killers and given me a set of exercises to do to stop my muscles seizing up.
I can never do things by halves can I?
