Yesterday when I got out of bed everything seemed to be normal. Everything seemed to be okay. It was cold and wet outside, I had (kind of) slept, and I was about to start work. That was all until I tried to sit down. All of a sudden this sharp pain shot up my spine and I knew what was going to happen next. My spinal injury (if you can call it that) had relapsed. I did so well during the summer and fall and yesterday all that went right out the window. I did have documentation from my chiropractor thats says the exact really long latin name of what I have but basically my hip bones have fused themselves to my spine and it causes pain. A lot of it. I was getting regular adjustments, but when both myself and my roommate lost our jobs there was no money for chiropractic visits.
Now I can only lay on my back or stomach and I cannot type or knit for very long. I tried contacting a local clinic for under priviledged people (I have a job but am grossly underpaid) and they said they can’t see me for six weeks! SIX WEEKS!!! What the heck am I supposed to do about my job (which I do online) or school (also online)? So tomorrow I am going to the E.R. I haven’t broken any of my resolutions because I can talk my roommate through cooking meals, but I just hope I don’t have to have surgery or anything major like that but I will update you when I know more.
