Broken Back...

I don't know what I have done to cause it, but I do know that I have crippled myself and been forced to walk hunched over for 2 straight days now. I think it might have been the culmination of walking barefoot all day at Schlitterbahn, sleeping in the car, standing up all day at work last week, & my coughing (from my cold) that broke my back. All of those things mixed equals a catch in the lower section of my back & pain shooting up every nearby nerve/muscle. I walked like a 90 year old woman yesterday and tried to do some stretches, but figured I needed to call in the reinforcements today, so I called a friend of mine, De'Aun, who is a professional masseuse & she worked it out for a good hour today. She definitely found the trouble spots, and I thought I was going to cry at one point, the pain was so bad, but I hung in there and it felt better. I'm afraid I'm starting to get tight again though so I hope I can keep stretching and work it out.

The back is the absolute WORST place to hurt on your body. Plus, I still have my cough which just adds an even more interesting aspect to all of this. This SUCKS! Anyways, that's why I haven't posted lately, and I should probably go now so I make sure to not be in this chair long enough to get stuck this way. Sometimes, I just don't understand how things like this happen, but I would LOVE for it to GO AWAY! Pray for me...:(

Awww, poor Kelly! Back pain is the WORST (and I should know)! Lay flat on your back on the floor a lot. It helps...for the moment. Keep stretching and get a heating pad!! They work wonders! Hope you feel better soon.

P.S. Been thinking about you a lot lately. How much longer until Chad gets back?
