Oh My Aching Back


I posted on Monday about needing to get more exercise.  Tuesday morning at 8am I bent over at my desk at work and about went to my knees.  OH. MY. ACHING. BACK.

Here it is Friday evening and I've had three chiropractor appointments and am on the mend, but not mended (as my Chiropractor informed me).  Yes, I'm improving, but it's not fixed yet and it frustrates me.  Though it does confirm one thing - that no matter my size, my back is going to go out if it so chooses.  I don't know...I think that maybe I thought some of my back problems of past (seriously...past...as in the last time I even needed to go to the chiropractor was over three years ago) was because of my weight.  But apparently that's not the case.  Sure, the everyday aching for carrying around an extra person was because of the weight, but when it goes out...not so much.

Anyway, I'm on the mend... have another follow-up appt on Monday and am hoping to be in a much better place by then.  Tonight I'm thankful for friends who pray for healing for me and for a great chiropractor who is helping my back get back to a good place.  Thank you, God, for both.

  1. Oh no! Back pain stinks. Tight hamstrings maybe? To loosen them up, I suggest kicking anyone in front of you who annoys you. Seriously, it stretches them ;)

    I hope you're feeling better soon!
