Well…I’ve been MIA for near 3 weeks. I found myself very demotivated to write or be creative while I was on high grade muscle relaxers. Plus just walking to the backyard to see the horses was exhausting.
I did try to return to work Monday with varying success. My leg went numb during my 1 hour commute and I managed to stay for 5.5 hours before my office chair became a torture device. I’ve stayed home the rest of the week out of sheer self preservation. Plus I can work from home, so it’s not all that bad. I am going to take a stab at going into work tomorrow though.
The other reason I didn’t feel like blogging is because my weight spiked by over 12lbs while I was taking all those muscle relaxers and it really got me down. As someone who is forever battling my weight, it didn’t exactly make me feel creative or chatty. Fortunately I actually weigh less now than I did before I got hurt. So all is right in the world!
I really want to get back in the saddle but I’m nervous because I still have pain in my sacrum area. I’m worried I’ll get hurt while I’m in the saddle and that’s a pretty scary position to be in with a back spasm because the only way off is through the pain. I’m game for just about anything but I would rather not do that! 😉
My doctor is suppose to refer me for physical therapy. Either way I hope I go in and they clear me for riding ASAP.
Aside from ALL THAT I am excited to get back to blogging and I have some pregnant mare updates (like the nail test!) to post. I plan to catch up on everyone’s blogs. We’ve got buckets of rain coming so I’ll have a ton of time.
