Please just pick me up......

    I don't care if your back is hurting.

   Yes, it is true.  I did it again.  My back is killing me.  But this time I did it in and I am down and out.  Now this story starts back in June when I first hurt my back.  I pulled some mussels during one of my Stroller Strides class.  It put me down for a week or so and them I was moving again.  Well I thought at least.  Looking back at the summer, I have been headed down hill all summer. 
    Before the first injury I was moving and grooving.  I was exercising 6 days a week.  I was running/walking 4 miles pushing both boys in the stroller.  After the injury I have not been able to do the walking and running I was doing.  Every time I thought I was back on my feet I would hurt it again.  It just became a nagging hurt until last week.  I simply bent down to buckle Little B's shoe and I felt a pinch.  It was all down hill from there.  By the next day I was at the Chiropractor and could hardly get off the table.  I needed help to get the kids in the car and home.  Xrays show that there are some bulging disks which are pinching nerves. 

   So here we are almost 2 weeks later and I am getting by day by day.  With meds on board I am able to get through the day.  I start physical therapy tomorrow and hopefully that will help.  But let me tell you my house is not the same with me under the weather.  It has been hard.  The boys are use to being outside and doing different activities, but this week has been a lot of sitting in the house.  Which means more fitting, screaming, crying and frustration.  It has not been fun and has not helped me feel any better about myself. 

    With that said, today we did make it to the park and met some friends, who thank god, helped me keep the boys safe.  The boys had fun, but Little B still just wants me to pick him up.  It is so hard when he does not understand that mommy can't do it.  I don't want to drop him and hurt him, so there is very little picking up.

    Tomorrow is hopefully the start to my recovery.  The first steps to getting me back to where I was back in June.  The first steps to getting my family happy and healthy.  My fingers are crossed that this works and I don't have to go through this again.  Here is to tomorrow.  The pressure is on.
