All the back pain

A couple of days ago I stopped taking my antiinflammatories as my new Doctor isn’t keen on me taking them with one of the other medications I’m on. Within 4 days I’m having to take pain killers more frequently as everything between my neck and knees has all but seized up.

I’m pretty tempted to go back on them so I can get a reasonable range of pain free movement, and a good night’s sleep, but I also want the Doctor to see me walking like the tin man, all seized up, at my appointment next week so that she really can see how much pain I’m in.

I’ve tried taking a tumeric tablet, twice a day, as well as some other herbal type remedies, but I think I’m to far gone for them to have much of an effect.

Social Media, and Me

Social Media, and Me

“I have no concrete plan for how to approach the shitshow of social media in 2018 and beyond, but I know it starts with not giving a fuck about it.”

I think that’s a healthy way to deal with social media across the board.

Generally speaking, it’s a very brief and curated glimpse into someone’s life, it barely shows us what the person is really like and what they’re going through. Then when someone does post absolutely everything that is happening, in an honest way, we accuse them of oversharing.

It’s a lose-lose situation.

Get sick, then struggle…

I’ve been improving all the time since I had the surgery on my spine. I’ve been meditating every day, feeling good…then I had a gastro bug last Friday and I’ve been feeling so flat, tired, and completely defeated since.

Next week will be a better week.
