Last night I was asking "Why me???????"
This morning I got my answer.........
Sleeping was a major challenge. I woke several times, aching or actually hurting. Usually I would be able to reposition myself or rub on some topical pain relief or reattach the heat pad and go back to sleep. Once it took me almost 30 minutes to get comfortable enough to drop off again. But I slept a little later this morning, so perhaps some of that was made up.
I'm better now. I woke this morning with a lot of stiffness and pain. The pain was not severe, but it was very present. And the stiffness .... OMG. It took me almost 15 minutes to get out of bed. HONESTLY!!!! I inched up, stopped, waited a minute or so, and inched up a bit more. I repeated this process several times till I was upright and leaning on the headboard where I stayed a while. Eventually I got my feet out from the covers and on the floor, hobbled to the bathroom, then brushed my teeth and my hair. As I limped back, the bed looked really inviting, but I knew that if I got back in I would have to extricate myself yet again, so I decided against that. I turned on the burner under the teapot, fed the dogs, heated the heat pad in the microwave, and shuffled to the couch, where I remained for about 2 hours.
I finally got into the shower and now I feel decent. Not good, but decent. I'll not be running footraces or even doing much housework today, for sure, but I'll live. Next time, the UPS guy will just have to be confronted with my boobs in the thin t-shirt. I ain't going through this again!
