I Blew My Back Out

Late posting this because I've been in bed most of the time suffering. I blew out my back on the 22nd of September 2022. Last week to the point of view of this post. Well I got in my friends car and my back went ouch. It was not that bad at the time, but I woke up at about 2 am in terrible pain. I was actually screaming when I woke up.

I had to call 911 and get to the hospital. They needed to give me a shot of pain meds so I could get to the stretcher. Even with the big hit of pain meds, I was in total hell.

I have to say my back never had this level of pain. It was enough that I was having to force myself to talk. I don't know about you, but my brain does not want to talk when I'm in level 9 pain.

They used a back board to get me on the bed in the ER. I was impressed at how easy it was for them to do it. There was not a hope of me getting up and moving to the bed, there just was not.

They gave me another shot and some pills. In a couple hours the pain was down to a 5. I was then send home with a scrip for pain meds. Being they where not covered and I knew it, I complained on FB and a very nice person came to my aid with a donation of money.

I got my friend to get me some Gummies at the dispensary instead, then when it went threw on Monday, I sent the money to her with Interac. So I'm good until Wednesday for pain management. So this is good. It's Tuesday at the moment and the pain even with no gummies seems to be at a level I can tolerate easily.

I'm hoping it will be back to normal soon, but I'm giving it another week, before I get to cleaning the carpets in my place. The vacuum is the worst for my back it seems.
