As the dust settles...
Mar 26, 2010The muscle pain is still there, mean and angry but we're learning to survive it. If I get up slowly and move slowly until it stretches out I can stay up and move for a while, which is hard because in my little house there aren't a lot of places to keep moving and since I live up by Seattle, its always raining. Last night we went to Walmart and it was pouring rain so even though I was hurting soooo bad when I got out of the car I had to book it to the front door or drown. I stood there "recovering" so that I could move for 5 minutes or so while people got their carts and came and went around me. I felt very silly but had to stretch that muscle out so I can move. :)
My main problem now is needing to take naps in the day time and not sleeping in the night. I woke up at 2 and was up watching TV until 7 and then slept another hour until Grandma got up. If I could stay up all day I could sleep at night, at least more than I am now, but I get so tired after moving. I also am not doing as much as I normally would so won't sleep as hard. I think when I get back to work Monday I'll sleep like I baby. I hope so anyways!!
