    Painful Wednesday Daily Post. Possible Triggers.
    jselleck posted:
    Good morning my crazy beeper friends. Where did the week go??? Can't believe it's Wednesday already. sigh.....

    Weather: COLD!!!! Front came through and I about froze my assets off last night!!! Hubbie would not turn the heat up for nothing.

    Sleep: Not enough. Only 7 1/2. Hopefully I get a nap today.

    Mood: Feel like s**it, back hurts, can't take anything, want to cry, so my mood is sorta bitchy, standoffish, and crabby. You name it, I feel it.

    Plans: Had a spinal block done yesterday because of my back pain, only this time they did a different one, wanting to see just how bad my back pain is, so they can decide the next step. Even with icing my back like they told me to, I feel like hell, hurt like the dickens and I can't take anything til this afternoon because I have to wait 24 hrs from the time of my procedure to take anything. Even my bipolar meds. Which puts me in a lovely mood to begin with. Just want to curl up in a ball and cry. My poor cat Peabody wanted to snuggle with mom for the first time in a while, but I kept having to get up to switch my ice pack which of course he didn't understand, all he knew was mom kept getting up and running him off her lap. My poor baby. So the cat hates me, I feel horrible, and Matt starts in on me. I absolutely, positively, DO NOT WANT TO GO ANYWHERE today. Well, Matt has a doctor's appt this afternoon for his yearly physical and of course wants to drag me along. Normally I would go, and happily. Just today I'm in pain, and his doctor has got to have the most uncomfortable chairs in the known universe. I'm not kidding. Unless you're lucky enough the snag the sofa, the chairs he has put your butt to sleep almost right away, and always have made my back hurt on a good day. So you would think he would understand why I don't want to go. No, he gets all hurt on me and picks a fight. We've been fighting since Sunday. I try and understand about his feet most of the time, you'd think he'd be more understanding about me. Just sitting in his chair (which is the better of the two and has more padding,) and typing this post is causing me to practically cry I hurt so much. Guess there's no way around it. Round 4 will start as soon as he gets up, if I like it or not. So I guess I can say my plans are to avoid a fight with my husband and convince him I hurt to much to go anyway. Just hope for once he'll get what I need at the grocery store without me going with him. Every time I asked him to go without me in the past he's threatened to buy just for himself only and nothing for me or the two of us together. I sooooo feel a headache coming on to match the one in my back. Hope everyone has a better day than me. ((((((HUGS))))))

    Good afternoon my friends!

    Weather: Cool and overcast

    Sleep: Woke up a few times and took stuff to get back to sleep.

    Mood: TRIGGER - Lower than low. Tired of so many things, mostly the sciatica pain. I am scheduled for an epidural shot next Thursday and my pain management doctor is giving me 4 potent pain pills a day, but they really don't help much. I have no energy to do anything, I can't get comfortable, so I am trying to sleep my way through the day. Why the heck did I go through the back surgery? My guess is that my right sciatica nerve was damaged so much before the surgery there is little they can do other than the epidurals. I hope to heavens it does help.

    Plans: I have to make plane reservations to attend my daughter's baby shower in June. My relationship with her is strained right now, but I am going to be there and I am sure I will have a great time.

    One piece of good news, I got the party for my mother-in-laws birthday party switched to my sister-in-laws house. I have been telling my husband to see what he can do because our kitchen will probably be still under construction. He has been putting it off, which is like him. I finally called one of his sisters and told her about my concerns and she told me that the sister-in-law that lives close to me is willing to hold the party at her house. She has done some redecorating and wants to show off her house. I could not let my husband know I called his sister and set this up, which surprised his sister, so I waited until he went to the store and told him his sister called and wants him to call back. I am so relieved you would think I would be happy, but I still have to face my daughter and get the room ready for her to sleep in. It is stacked with plastic bins with items and books that were held in a built in bookcase which we had removed. I got some of it done last week so I could go out to visit my new baby Rosie, and I want to go again soon, but I have to get more work done and I just don't think I can get it done for a few more weeks.

    Sorry guys to be such a downer.


    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
