  • So sorry to hear about your back. For me, it's my shoulders. You and I both have to learn to STOP DOING THINGS that are too much for us. But it's so hard to reprogram the head, especially when things need doing.

        We left home early 7am! and drove to the University of Waterloo campus. Tour day. I wore my Merrell Delight Glove Wool shoes, but by the end of the day my toes were a little sore. (New shoes and all that) I got a 6.5, my toes are close to the ends, but my heels fell out of the 7's...

        We had a free "burger" at the campus. The patty was thin and cold.

        Then we drove to Guelph and bought some munchies at the Metro. Raspberries, nachos and salsa, cheesecake! and pistachios
        We checked into our free room! (Complements of my BIL) and I opened a bottle of wine. It was a mini suite, very nice. My BIL met us there and we nibbled on our munchies and drank wine until University Son texted us to say he was home and showered and ready to go.

        We went out for Thai. It was most excellent. And then we watched Wreck It Ralph in 3D
        where I had popcorn and Nibs. Stupid theater.

          • Monday

            My back was bad again today. At least it help up for the two days of walking around campuses!
            I spent 2 hours with my Home Instruction Student this morning.

            Then when I tried to get out of my car at home, I got half way out and my back seized and I had to wait about 5 minutes before I could get out I laid on the floor with my legs up on the couch...

            I spent some time on the internet, then my Farmer had a combine breakdown and I had to drive to Chatham for a $300 shaft. I made the lady in the shop carry out the shaft. I ate Pistachios, the rest of the Nibs and some Pringles on the drive...

            I'm hopeless

            Supper was leftovers. Then I packed up snack for Band and spent about a 1/2 hour at play practice before going to band.
            My back made me wait 1/2 way out of my car at play practice and again at band practice On the way to band practice I realized I'd forgotten napkins. I did not stop at the grocery store to get them 'cause I didn't want to get out of my car an extra time (I used paper towels at the school)

            Snack was my FIL's apples (cut up) old cheddar and mozzarella cheese, rice crackers and some other flax crackers, red pepper slices from my garden, pistachios, some leftover sour candies from the booth, and a box of 90 Halloween chocolate bars (Aero, KitKat, Coffee Crisp, and Smarties)

            I ate several mini chocolate bars

            I came home and laid on the floor with my legs up again.

            It's 10:15. I'm going to bed.
            I think I'm going back to the chiropractor's tomorrow
            again

            • Ah, poor you.

              Is it a muscle strain thing with spasms or something more, what does your chiropractor think?

              Can't say I don't relate to the nonprimal foods when in pain and feeling like crap.

                  It's a disc thing

                  I'm not sure why I want them...or why my Dragon demands them...

                  Possible reasons?:
                  This will make me feel better
                  Poor me, I deserve a treat
                  Well its all gone to hell so what difference will it make

                  Hmm, I should probably think some on this...the answer might be very enlightening

                    Chiropractor's at 10:45
                    Retail therapy
                    I got some Christmas ideas
                    I bought a few things, I'll take a photo of a couple of them to post
                    Mall Beef Shawarma salad
                    Hamburger soup for supper
                    Hot chocolate

                    Red wine gives me red blotches on my cheeks
                    White doesn't

                    • A disc thing...so is there any treatment options, since you've had so many flare ups in the past year? That's not good.

                      So I guess you'll be back more onto white wine vs red?

                          • Wednesday

                            Supply job today. When I take attendance I have to fill out a bubble sheet. With pencil. Fill in the dots of the absent students. Send it to the office. Well, all morning I thought it was Tuesday...yeah, not good

                            Oh, AND I had construction students doing textbook work.
                            1st period I had 7 students. Grade 10. They finished the work in a 1/2 hour. Then they played games on their iPads.
                            2nd period I had 5 students. Grade 11. And one "visitor". About 3 did the work and then they "explored" the family studies room we were in. I'm embarrassed to list some of the things they did...but here are a few: put child proof covers over the door knobs, played with a ping pong ball, tried to plug in an iron... I 'lost' 2 halfway through the class and another 2 in the last 5 minutes.
                            3rd period I had 3 students. One signed himself out 1/2 way through the class. At least they all did the assignment.
                            4th period NO ONE showed up! No one. I called the office. They paged the class. Nothing. A girl that I've had in a class before asked if she could come in my class instead of staying with the supply teacher she had. I made sure it was OK with the other supply teacher and the student and I talked all class.

                            My back's been OK today. Of course I was careful with it. I sat in my classes. I was careful getting in and out of the car. Once home I didn't pick up anything off the floor or stoop over to pull clothes out of the dryer, of pick up and dump out the compost bucket, or...

                            I DID sit on the side step with a glass of red and some pistachios and threw some balls for my butterflies

                            Tomorrow I take my Daughter back to the Fowler Kennedy clinic for a re-evaluation of her knee.

                              • A microdiscectomy is the treatment. It's a fairly minor procedure which can make a remarkable difference. I scrub in on them everyday and my fella had one - went from having to crawl to the bathroom to pain-free in one day.

                                It is surgery though, with all that entails. Still, it may be worth getting a referral to a neurosurgeon.
