I am so sorry I have been absent from my blog. I have been suffering with sciatica, which is very painful with pain shooting from my hip to toe down my left leg. It inhibits my sitting, standing, and walking to limited time. I have to take short walks, and luckily my lovely garden provides a circular pathway that is enjoyable to walk on. I have stretching exercises to do as advised by the doctor, have had chiropractor work done, have had heat and cold packs, electro-pulse work done, and use my EMPI machine, which I got last year around this time when I had sciatica down my right leg.
Pain limits activities, especially ones which require bending, kneeling, and twisting movement, which is about everything. It definitely is a cause of feeling helpless and depressed. I have missed 2 weeks of work because of it and my pay per month (4 weeks) is less than $1000 after taxes and all, so this hits me hard. I am praying to be better (by Monday!) and return to work and feel better. Since I work at a computer doing database entries three days a week for 6.5 hours each day, this sciatica is problematic. I want this to end! So say a little prayer for old Rose here.
