So being me yesterday i got 2 bags of sand out of the car for some rendering i needed to do and put them in my hallway. Went back to lock the car and then came back, bent over to pick both bags up and...... twang, my back pinged quite bad. I felt ok for about 5 mins, went outside to have a ciggy, but then came over all dizzy and felt really hot and clammy and nearly passed out. I laid down on the sofa ive got in my kitchen and within 5 mins i couldnt move my lower half. The missus called the doc who told me to stay still until he could come out, checked my for numbness and pins n needles and eventually put me on a high dose of Diazipan and Ibruprofen.
So today i still cant move my lower half. I managed to painfully crawl on my hands and knees to bed last night (took me about 15 mins of agony). Im typing this from the other halfs laptop in bed and im so peed off with myself for doing something so stupid as to bend over the wrong way. I am in agony when i move the slightest bit down below, and to top it off ive got 2 kids who wanted to enjoy their summer hols with their dad - which now seems a bit of a way off coz the doc said it could take weeks to get back to normal. Ive got a back specialist booked in for Saturday to come around and see if she can tweak a few things but we shall she :-( Another ironic thing is that ive just had an email saying the 50" plasma i ordered is coming this Friday - LOL i cant even lift the paper let alone a 50" tv !!
So then, im thoroughly bored, peed off with myself and confined to bed not being able to do anything. Moral is always be careful and dont take your body for granted. Im only 38 for gods sake - but at the moment i feel like 60 !!
