And I slept 3 hours again.
DO NOT tear a back muscle. Do not then subsequently sit on a couch with absolutely ZERO zupport or springs left in it (seriosuly, can't he even buy a board to shove under thsoe cushions?) and have your pelvis shift on you. Something normally okay b/c no back issue. NBUt with the muscle all mucked up? Yeah.
And then Sunday I had to housework it, and yes, I worsened it b/c I'm an idiot, but my FIL w ill do a fingertip test for dust and dirt on surfaces.It's a lab management thing but it freaks me out anyway...
So.... Yeah. I'm basically ill from exhaustion.
However, O got out my hot rock kit, and heated the rocks and wrapped 'em in a cotton towel, and Hubby helped me lie on a doubled mat on the floor, and positioned my hot rocks. Not a huge relief but something.
Then he let the cats in from teh porch.
Suddenly... EYES! I mean, right up to my nose. Dahlia and Dixie were checking to see if I was okay. Or dead.
I said, "Hey, girls."
Two cats went about three feet straight into the air (a meter for the metric among us) and tried to each run. Problem was, they ran into *each other* and then there was this mass of legs, tails and fur as they sorted out which cat was which, going which way, at what speed!
Of all times to not video every minute of my life, right?
So with pain at a ten...
It's assuemd we chose ten as the basis for our decimal (from the Greco-Roman word for ten, Latin being decum IIRC) b/c we have... ten fingers. Yep. We counted on our fingers and went from there. Mock not those who count on fingers.
A crab has ten legs, however, so maybe our ancestors were counting up the crab legs they ate;-)
A woman's height is presumed ot be ten times her hand's length. This approximation, btw, is nowhere near as good a rule as it sounds. I checked mine, off my a centimeter, which isn't too bad all considered. I cehcked some studies b/c it's 550 AM and why not. Individual variations are pretty broad, and are affected by gender, ethnicity, childhood nutrition... (BTW, the men multiply by 11. Measure in cm, and measure your hand *properly*. Middle finger tip to proper anatomical marker at distal something-or-other.)
Oh, and, no, hand length and other lengths are *not* correlated. Sorry, guys... (Or not sorry?)
And if ten isn't enough... Well, let's pretend we all got the ten hours of sleep we hope to?
Much love and prayers for all!
Off to e-mail therapist why I can't see him this week. He makes enoguh to buy a new couch. I should know. I've been going there 5 years...
I went to get more trigger point injections in my neck and shoulders. The doctor did more this time than he did last time. After the injections, My arms shoulders and neck have been sore for days, which is normal.But the problem is that I think the shots aggravated the peripheral neuropathy that I have in my arms and hands. Iimmediately after the shots the neuropathy, the pain, the numbness,...
Good morning! And it's been morning for me for a while. Alas.Four hours of sleep. Down at midnight (finally! the muscle relaxant kicked in and my back unkinked!)... and up when it wore off. Four hours. Ping! I see the doc again ASAP, but ASAP means "stand by for his phone call and run out door". Oh boy... As it's the weekend, I predict I will need another round of scar-scanning and so forth....
