I have Lortab, toradol, (which is an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen but better) and soma. It sounds like a lot. Normally any kind of pain pill will knock me out. I also work nights and take melatonin whenever I need to go back to work the next night and have to sleep. I think that my sleep schedule is way off. I've had to take lots of steroids in the past, and I think that is what has me wired. I'm not hurting too bad, just wired...happens everytime I get steroids!

Tinyliny-hope your tooth isn't abscessed! Feel better soon. Makes me not want to complain about the hip! I dread the dentist.

Oh I feel so sorry for you
My husband knows that riding is what I choose to do and I understand that if I injure myself I can't moan because that's what I decided to do. Maybe you should make the same sort of thing clear in your family.

Horses, like all animals, have their own mind <3

Wow that sucks!!! Hope you get better soon so you can ride again

Thanks LN and Rodeoqueen. I can't wait to ride, but after walking a bit this morning, I definitely realize it is further out than I had hoped. I would rather make sure I am totally healed before re-injuring myself. Now I need recommendations for a good joint supplement for 26 yrs. Old?

Silly girl, nurses and doctors are always the worst patients. Feel better soon.

BoxT...So very true!! My husband can account for that!

Hope you feel better soon.

I can get that you need time out - I have a 5 year old, and would you believe it, 17 month old twin girls Mama time is hugely important - mine is riding and playing a team sport. Every time I get injured, the (nearly) hubby shakes his head at me and tries not to say anything, because he knows I will tell him exactly where to go lol.

Chiilaa....that is so funny...are your girls identical or fraternal? Some days I just feel that I am going crazy with my girls, but they are truly a blessing. Have your twins ridden horses yet? I've sat mine up there and held on for dear life to their legs and walked a very small circle. If they see me on the horse they will cry until I put them up there. Lol...this is the tenth set of twins in my family from my great g-mother down to me (very large family) Do you have any advice for managing it all? It seems to be getting easier, but just a different kind of busier you know?

My girls are ID. The only advice I have is to embrace the chaos lol. Life is hectic, but I wouldn't have it any other way lol. My girls haven't been on a horse yet, we live right in the middle of our city, and I only manage to ride once a week - and since that is 'my' time, I sure am not going to drag the kids with me lol.

When it gets really hard, I just remember that 'this too shall pass'. Newborns were hard, but they don't stay newborn for long, and that goes for every other phase they go through, or difficult behaviours or stuff like that. They won't be like that forever.
