Giraffe Posted January 23, 2011 Share Posted January 23, 2011 Please forgive me, but I need to whine. I have a bad back - titanium disc to replace the shredded one, bungee cord and titanium rod to support a fusion of three vertebra further up, associated screws and pins. I'm in pain a lot. Most of the time I can just suck it up and deal with it. When a low pressure system comes through I can feel it and I sometimes end up curled in a ball. I have a DD who loves to flop around. Even asleep she flops so much that we can't keep her in a twin bed - she falls out. This morning she "flopped" into my back. And now I'm in agony. DH caught her before she really body slammed me, but the way she hit me initially was such that it reverberated down my back and now my leg is tingling and numb. The pain in my back is excruciating. DH spoke to her severely but she really doesn't understand what she did. She's 3. I get that. So I'm trying to stay calm around her, though I'm not hiding the pain well. And maybe that's a good thing - she needs to understand that I can't be body slammed - ever. I just needed to whine to someone. I'm in a comfortable chair while DH goes to mass quickly and comes home. DD is watching TV. So much for the day. I had plans to do bulk cooking, pick meat off the chicken and freeze it and the carcass. I can't even stand right now. Whimper. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
