I’m calling myself out for naughty behavior this weekend. You see, I was moving stuff back to its proper place after eating market carpets cleaned for my birthday Andy back didn’t like that. I should know better. I’ve had more than a dozen procedures to burn the nerves in my back so I can walk with limited pain.
Anyway, I rested immediately after it happened but I had dinner plans for my birthday later the same day. So, I drugged myself and went out to eat. I could barely walk when I woke up yesterday. Pain shot from the cervical area of my spine to the middle of my back and across the lumbar region of my spine down both legs. My things were tingling and my feet were numb. I drugged me again and I was still in agony. I took a nap and woke up in pain. I finally learned I had to cancel the rest of my weekend activities to rest.
I’m up today but I can still feel the effects of my naughty behavior. I may not get coal in my stocking this year but I’ve certainly learned to listen to my body, especially as I get older, or else I’ll pay the price.
