Friday Rick and I have a day off.
Not for fun - oh no siree.
Rick will be taking me to the spine institute for tons of fun.
I will either be getting an epidural nerve root block or another type of shot in my hip area.
Sounds like a great way to spend a day off don't you think?
I assume all this because of my history of this pain and issue.
After making my appointment we discussed doing things while I was there and not having to go back. I imagine I will be there a good portion of the day.
I will be so relieved to be out of pain so in that respect it will be fun.
I know the drill of what to expect. I will be unable to drive myself home and I will want a morphine drip. (besides my license is still suspended so I shouldn't drive)
Now in the big scheme of things this isn't so bad.
It is not life threatening. It's painful and a pain in the ass is all.
Eventually I know there is a surgery in my future but right now this will hold me over.
Working out really aggravated it. I knew it when I was doing some of the things I was doing.
I mentioned this to my trainer but seriously she is cute but really not all that versed in injuries. At least she doesn't appear that way to me. In my experience trainers aren't that well versed in more than muscle groups and how to make them big or toned.
Unless of course they have had extra training in that area.
Most at your local gym don't know squat about that type of thing.
If I could go to the gym in my neighborhood I so would!
These folks are serious and their experience and education is superb.
But I can't afford that gym.
So I go where the cute trainer that is there only 2 days a week and everyone else is just there to show you how to work equipment the rest of the time. You or I could qualify for such things.
I personally would never want that responsiblity or liablity so I could never do that.
Guess that is why they make you sign something that states they are not responsible if you arm falls off or you further hurt yourself. You're an adult and you should know. I am and I do.
But I did it anyways thinking it would help me lose a few lbs.
What stupid things we do for a few lbs huh?
So now I am off to get some major shit done that is going to cost me thousands of dollars.
YIPEE. I could have put that money to much better use.
But I will no longer be in pain is my hope and no more pain ain't a bad thing from where I sit right now.
