Back Pain Sucks
For the past 6 months or so I’ve been dealing with back pain, well about a week before we had to move Mark suddenly began having back pain from outta nowhere. So we went and took him to the E.R. because we needed him to be ok for work and stuff I personally am biding my time until medical insurance kicks in. Well the Doctor figured out immediately that it was his sciatic nerve causing his pain, they gave him some med’s and told him to follow the discharge instructions and the pain would be gone within about a week. Well as I read over the discharge paperwork I noticed that all the symptoms listed for this were the same one’s I’ve been suffering with. So I’m thinking that this is what’s wrong with me. However we are so far in the hole with medical bills already, and since I’m not working or anything, I’m just holding off until February when the insurance kicks in. But I tell you what it just really sucks dealing with this pain day in and day out. It’s not only physically exhausting but emotionally and mentally draining as well. I move around feeling like a little old lady, because half the time I can’t stand for more than a few minutes at a time. Taking a shower requires a stool for me to sit on and I also keep a stool that I drag around the house with me for my daily chore’s like laundry, or cooking or whatever I may happen to be doing. Going to the store is almost always a chore as I need to constantly rest on a cart, and you might as well forget doing stuff like going to the mall because I just can’t handle the walking. I just hope February get’s here fast because I really don’t know how much more I can take of this.
