Up All Night

Earlier tonight Ron (my DH) gave me a backrub. When it was done and I tried to get up, my back went nuts. I'm not sure why either. It wasn't hurting any more than usual while he massaged it, nor did anything he did cause shooting pains or something like that. I'm guessing it was because I was lying on my stomach (with a pillow to support my lower back). Laying on my stomach or my back always causes me to hurt, but usually not as quickly and severely as it did tonight. Due to the pain, I've been awake all night. I did take my meds, which did help a little bit, but nowhere near enough for me to sleep. When I layed down to go to sleep the muscles in my buttocks, pelvis, and my left leg all decided they wanted to cha-cha and tango, which of course kept me awake.

Since I am awake anyway I decided to come out to the living room and catch up on my blog reading. I am behind because we were gone for 10 days, so now I have 355 unread blog entries in my google reader thing. This will probably take me 3 or 4 days to catch up on, but I will catch up. Since we do not have another trip planned anytime soon, I expect to be able to read other people's blogs, comment, and post to my own blogs more regularly. Before we went to Indiana, I was all caught up and staying that way but boy do blog entries and email groups fill up fast. I'd rather play catch up though, than just skip the entries.

On my stitching blog I have posted information for a give-away (A Pay It Forward [PIF] giveaway). It is open to anyone who wishes to enter, not just stitchers. Though due to the nature of the PIF being a crafty one, it would probably help if those who sign up do a craft of some sort, or they can send gift certificates instead of a finished craft item when it is their turn to do a PIF and thus continue to Pay It Forward. Anyway, if you are interested you can find the post here To enter the drawing all you have to do is post a comment on that entry and please be sure to include an email address so that I can contact you if you win. Thank you!

  1. I've been behind with my blog reading, mostly because of past problems and not being well, as you'll know from reading my blog...right now I have a chest infection that's had me up at 5am every morning the past couple of days..but I just wanted to say I am reading, just haven't had time to comment, that should hopefully change in the new year...hope you have a good one and it is as painfree as possible.

    See you in 2010!



Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
