After months of back pain, I finally caved and went to the doctor, and while I was so sure that I hurt my back, apparently it may have been some of that, but I had let an infection get away from me. It was to a point where I had trouble getting up and down, kneeling, picking things up, etc. I wondered to myself, how did I let it get so bad and not see any symptoms. Well, I did see symptoms, but I didn't pay attention. I have been so focused on my social life, my work, and making everyone happy, that I was ignoring my own body.
Will I change my ways? I'd like to believe that I will decide that I shouldn't live with infections. On the other hand, I feed off of making people happy and putting other people first. At what cost should that come? At what point to I say, no. I need to rest.
I'm on my second day of pretty much just sitting and napping while doing a little bit of computer work. Sitting is no more comfortable on my lower back than standing. My medication is almost gone and I really don't feel any better.
My lessons learned are I need to get some Ninxga in my life and use a lot more Thieves!!!
