I've done something that I haven't done in a while. I've hurt my back!

I had a little bit of muscle strain while in North Carolina, getting tossed down by the waves on the beach. It had been getting better, but on Wednesday night I must've done something bad, because it hurt a lot. Not sure if it was giving Will a bath, picking something off the floor or WHAT. I had a very tough time getting out of bed on Thursday, and tying my shoes, walking, etc etc etc. It was bad enough to go to the doctor today.

Doctor prescribed a muscle relaxer for bedtime, and lots of advil, heating pads, stretches and rest. He also said that it would take about four to six weeks to be back to my old self. FOUR TO SIX WEEKS!!!!!

This is a little bit of a wakeup call. I'm spreading myself a little too thin these days. Taking on too much. So today, I pledge to take better care of myself!

There is nothing worse than a hurt back... yes, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! Don't get over confident if it starts to feel better. Relax, stretch, and do as little as possible.
