This is why I’m not doing so well today

The boys are spending the day with their Grandparents and I just woke up from my nap. I’ve been in pretty rough shape the last few days because my back has gone out. 

I suffered a major back injury back in 2001 and it took the better part of twelve years to finally manage the pain. 

I’ve been doing really well that past few years, mostly because I discovered that fitness walking helped tremendously. 

I’m not sure what has happened but the pain is so bad, it takes my breath away. Walking isn’t the fix all at the moment because when I try, my legs physically give out. It’s one of those things where I step funny, and literally lose control of my lower body. 

While this sucks, I’m not super worried because this does happen from time to time. It doesn’t get better overnight and can take awhile to resolve. 
There really isn’t anything I can do except a cycle or prednisone but that can be very unpleasant, and include destructive side effects. 

Like I said above, the kids are gone for the afternoon and I can rest. Laying down in such a way that allows my spine to decompress, is the best I can do. This typically helps to get me back up and walking again. The walking will usually take care of the rest. 

Until I can overcome this, I’ll be completely exhausted. This is the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life, but it’s always the same and at least I know what to expect.
