We started the process of opening our pool this weekend. Which means I was bending over to pour chemicals in, lifting buckets and scooping out the pool.
And…guess what freaking hurts again?
Chronic back pain is no joke. I’ve never been incapacitated from my pain for so long. Ever. I’ve been back to icing it and taking pain killers (though not too many, I’d rather feel where it hurts so I can avoid doing further damage), taking muscle relaxants and not sleeping.
I have an audition this weekend. For a musical I really want to be involved in, but I’m worried that my back is going to slow me down.
Today I brought an ice pack to work with me and a lower back support pillow.
Don’t ever take good health for granted, peeps.
