A Pain in the Neck, I Mean Back

Funny how things affect a person's mood. An argument with the spouse or child will easily put you in a bad mood. People at work will annoy you. But, I was not ready to be in a bad mood today. However, when I got up this morning, or tried to get up, I was immediately irritated. My back hurts. I'm not usually a complainer, I just go on and do what I have to do. But today is a different story. Bending over to put food in the dogs bowls hurt, lifting anything hurt. It hurts to sit, it hurts to stand. Usually I work it out and finally any pain I have goes away. Today, nothing seems to work and I really dont feel like doing anything. Having pain in the back is a real pain in the neck! Guess I'll have to find the heating pad and go sit down with it. Daisy will love that because she'll want to be right by me. Could be worse as I think of people with much worse problems. But I feel like whinning today. Tomorrow will be better, right?

Sorry your back is paining you...take it easy. Whining is okay too, as long as you don't whine too long :-) Dr. John sent me over!

I also have back pain. I am not sure if it is the weather or the fact that I have been lifting heavy boxes.
Hope your back is back to normal soon.
Came from Dr John's.

Hi I am visiting from Dr. Johns page

Hi Jill, I notice you are in Houston, my second son just moved there last week......Hope that he likes it. I guess you are having extreme heat also.

Sorry to hear about your back. I know how you feel, when you hurt and someone asks, How are you, it is pretty hard to say fine, when you are hurting like heck. I woke up with an earache......and it has greatly affected my mood all day. I sure wish it would stop.

I am here via of the Dr. John Marathon.

My goodness Jill! I hope you get to feeling better soon. I was down in the back once & Doans back pills helped ease it some. Main thing was to just rest & let it heal. Of course in this fast pace world; that isn't always easy. Soft squeezes to ya & sending all the get well vibes I can spare. :-)
