Laying on your back for two days sucks

So, no exciting updates-- just pain. I went to the doctor today who put me on steriods, vicatin, valium, and some other pain meds-- I start physical therapy tomorrow. If that stuff doesn't work then I guess I'll have to drop a class and get a MRI or something. I've been in a fairly good mood today, which is good. Gave my dad some b-day presents and my parents came over and brought me a good dinner. Winnie took care of me too, even helped me shower. Going to the doctor was the worst pain I've ever experienced and hopefully will ever experience. It was excrutiating. I was crying and wincing and screaming at some points b/c of the amazing amount of pain just getting up and walking and sitting in the wheelchair. I'm fine when I'm flat on my back, not fine any other way.

Anyway, pray for me. I'd really like to be able to stand up sometime soon without crying.

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the back - mine isn't nearly as bad sounding as yours, but I've been having aches and pains to where I'm having trouble putting on my pants or getting up from chairs. My massage therapist said it's an accumulation of stress, and she does a great job getting rid of the pain. If you need her sure beats taking a bunch of pain pills!
