This is *not* the way to start the week!

OK, I don't want to be a huge whiner, but a little, maybe, just for today?

I put my back out last week, woke up in pretty major pain Thursday. Saw the chiropractor Friday... I thought it helped a little, but I'm right back today where I was on Thursday. That's not good -- means I also didn't get anything done over the weekend. Well, I appliqued the center onto my mariner's compass block, but that's it -- it was clear that sitting at the sewing machine was not a good idea.

When I was getting ready for bed last night, I grabbed my bite splint (for the TMJD), and discovered it has a huge split in the back, and a crack on the side not too far away. In other words, one good chomp down and I could be choking on a piece of acrylic. Yum. Luckily, I have another (different) one, which I can use, but it's a little fragile from repeated repairs. Rather like the other one, in fact!

Then, I woke up this morning around 4 a.m. (never good!) thinking "gee, my finger hurts"... by the time I finally dragged my bum out of bed almost 3.5 hours later, I realized it's probably going to trigger. Again. Four weeks after the last time. Just shoot me now. (pun intended)

You deserve a whine after that night - I hope the week gets better!

Oh Honey . . . I say whine away, too. I'm feeling like I just took 10 steps backward myself–I'm more sympathetic than you need to know ;-)

Whine away. You need it after those couple of days. I hope you feel better soon.
