Update on things in Scottie’s world

Filed under: My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 17:28

This morning I went to see my pain doctor.   I got 14 shots in my back.  My back was so bad the doctor said she could feel the muscles clench and spasm under the skin.  I had gone 6 weeks without shots, I had fallen and injured my left knee and left hip.   I have not been able to sleep for the pain.  I was so shaky on my feet she made me sit on the bed.   It was a smart move on her part as when she was trying to give me the shots I jerked forward in agony and almost fell from the bed.  If I had been standing as I normally try to do for the shots I would have collapsed on the floor.  She was working hard to not hurt me and keep me still.  However the muscles were so rock hard I couldn’t stand it.  She had to stop several times and rub my back and try to loosen the locked muscles.  So I came home, Ron made me eat, and then I went to bed.  I got some sleep.  It was so grand to just sleep.  In a day or two I will get caught up on emails and on the many blogs I love but have not felt up to being at the computer and not thinking clear enough to really absorb the information.   As the medications spread through the muscles of my back, blood flow returns to a more normal level, I can sit, I have energy, I have a much reduced pain.   I also have more interest and drive.   So to those authors of blogs I have have been slack at reading that is why.  It was pain and being so tired that simple kept me from being able to do much of anything.   I love the blogs.  I just did little other than watch different web channels and what time I did spend on blogs was limited by my own ability to focus.  The doctor says I have tried to go too long between shots and I must now have them every month and she upped my muscle relaxers.  What I am trying to say my wonderful friends, is Scottie is back.  Not to full steam yet, but already the boiler is stoked and the fire billowing and the engine is revving up.    I had 668 emails this morning.  This afternoon I managed to get that down to 140.  Tomorrow I will get the rest cleaned up.   See you on your blogs soon.   Best wishes, much happiness.   Hugs

    • Thank you. I am excited to get back to reading the blogs again. This happens, I just let it get really bad this time because the shots are very painful. OF course letting it go and it getting so bad makes them more painful. So it is just something to deal with. Part of that whole make good decisions in life thing that is so hard to do. 🙂 Hugs
