Won’t Be Round Much This Weekend….

Lower Back Pain Ahead?

Lower Back Pain Ahead? (Photo credit: TaranRampersad)



Just popping in to say I won’t be round much this weekend and possibly into next week – I have put my lower back out and sitting for any length of time is very painful. I have purchased a chair designed to help with that but you have to break it in gradually so it doesn’t solve the problem immediately.

Consequently being on the computer is a bit hard for any extended period of time. So although poems will still post that I’ve scheduled I probably can’t keep up with my Reader or the blogs I regularly follow till the back is better. I’ll try to log in briefly each day to respond to those who comment on my writing etc but beyond that I need to let the back settle. 😦

I’m sorry I’ll miss all your great work in the meantime, and please don’t think I’m neglecting you all, but I’ll be back with renewed vigour and enthusiasm once the back pain is relieved! Wish me luck in a speedy recovery! 🙂

    Here’s to hoping that your back gets better real soon. Have you tried a Chiropractor? 🙂

    • I sometimes go to osteopaths..I find lower back usually is better left to fix itself, possibly with massage, and a friend gave me a chinese massage yesterday. But if it keeps recurring I may need to go to the osteo or even get an xray..will see..I’m hopeful as its a bit better today that its on the mend, but I’m not casually optimistic yet! 🙂

    • Very true – I’ve just bought a saddle chair to help with posture as a back pain relieving and preventive measure and I’m thinking of one of those sit/stand desks too…they say it’s much better for you, and adding in Ernest’s ‘medicinal beverages’ wouldn’t be bad either, LOL! 🙂

  18. Sweet Sis, I wish you a speedy recovery!! I so wish I was around the block to come and help you out. Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers each day. Big hugs…much love….Skye

  19. Aww Helen. I wish you the best on a speed recovery!

    • Thank you, I’m trying! Unfortunately it means I have to limit time on line, or anything that requires sitting for any lengthy period. 😦 Still, it is a bit better today than yesterday, so hopefully I’m on the mend! 🙂
