This week is all about comfort – and what better way to be comfortable than in soft fleece sweatpants! I’ve been going to physical therapy for a while now – trying to get rid of back pain brought on by a car accident I had back in early August. The lower back pain keeps coming back every time I go up a steep hill. Last Tuesday it came on really bad when I was working on set as a stand in and had to walk up and down a steep hiking trail. I was in as much pain as I was in 2 months ago when I went to the Urgent Care. It was awful. I had a big old pity party for myself when I got home. Bawling my eyes out because this one area isn’t getting any better. I had a chiropractic appointment the next day, but I was in way too much pain to have any hope that he would be able to fix me at this point, either. I’ll just admit it. I was a hot mess bawling my eyes out that night, thinking no one could fix me.
Well, the chiropractor didn’t do a whole lot that first day, mostly an assessment, then sent me to get some x-rays. Probably a good idea for him to know what he’s dealing with before he started trying to align my back. So, off I went Friday for my x-rays, which I dropped off a CD of when I went to PT later that day.
The good news is – nothing is broke or fractured. Bad news is, it may take more time and chiropractor visits along with my PT and some acupuncture. I thought I was going in for a 15 minute consultation for the acupuncturist and ended up getting a full session. Which is probably for the best as I wasn’t so sure about getting needles poked into me and how that was going to make me feel better. But, feel better I did after the acupuncture! I felt very relaxed and loosened up. I am starting to feel some light pain in my lower back now, a couple of hours later, but let me tell you, acupuncture is not wack-a-doodle voodoo. It does work. I am sold on it now.
So, as I continue the process of getting better, getting aligned correctly, getting my joints all loosened up, doing my strength training exercises – I swear, I’m going to be like Arnold Schwarzenegger when I’m finished with all this – I am having to pull out all of my comfy clothes to go to my appointments in. Especially since the pain is in my lower back and, well, jeans just aren’t very movable for them to work on me in. Today’s fashion is all about comfort. I loooooovvveee comfy clothes! Who says my sweat pants aren’t sexy? Okay. They probably aren’t. But I’m so comfy in them I don’t even care what anyone thinks about them.
These ones are awesome fleece lined ones with little silver polka dots all over them. They are from Marshall’s, but I’ll do my best to find some comfy sweatpants and a cool feather t-shirt somewhere out there for you all.
