Ahh, it is the best excuse in the world to do nothing!!

It is, dream catcher, you are right. I have learnt my lesson from rushing it...look at where that landed me!

Was very sick at work from the left over dregs of the diazepam last night. Boss heard and sent me home. Slept it off. I can't take it!

And, even worse, I miscalculated my tablets. I thought I have another strip...I only have enough to last until tomorrow lunch. The earliest doc appt they could get me is Monday! Will have to phone, explain and apologies.

Thanks to both of you, this all seems a lot less scary now, and I'm looking forward to being pain free!

That's the main thing, pain free. By the time I went in, I had to immobilize my arm to keep it in the socket and I'd had a muscle spasm in my neck, down my back and under my shoulder blade for MONTHS, because I didn't know my shoulder had gotten so bad. So, Gigi running through me on Christmas Eve was actually a blessing in disguise because she made things so bad I couldn't ignore them anymore. When she knocked me down, and I landed so hard on my right arm, it just finished blowing things up. I felt better before I left the recovery room. And I haven't missed that muscle spasm!

I've got both of those drugs in my cabinet - and a few others as well for when I need extra pain relief - I can only take them at night - no way could I function normally if I took them in the day
The last time I had severe shoulder pain our GP put me on a short course of steroids - worked 100% and no side effects.

Diazepam is the pits!

Daffy Duck, I feel sorry for you. I had to take Diazepam for a year for back spasms. It is horrible stuff and did a lot of bad things to me mentally. For me anyway it caused depression and I got off it as soon as I could. But if your muscles are spasming you may have to endure it. I tried Lorazepam and it was even worse. I think these drugs are actually designed to treat mental disorders, and they can mess with your mind. So when you describe those meltdowns, I feel for you. After my spasms settled down a little, I was able to take Norco or Vicodin for them -- bad stuff too, but better than Diazepam. I'm thankful to be off all that stuff now. Hope you have a steady recovery.

Dreamcatcher-I will look forward to chores for sure. Since I only ride and do barn stuff from April through October, this year will probably be pretty much a loss. Thankfully he is one I can get on and just ride and be pretty safe…..he has WAY more whoa than go, and loves to trail ride.

The neck pain is really awful…..I get that! I am also SO ready for a full night of sleep. It may be drug induced for a bit, but at least I will rest!

Sorry I was quiet over the weekend. I spent thursday lunch time onwards and friday at home.

Friday I went to see the other doc at our place. He is a locum, only in a few days and in high demand. In my drug haze, miscalculated how many I had left. So I made a phonecall and they managed to get me right in.

He was brilliant, and spent 30minutes explaining what sort of operation they would do (grim) and the recovery process. I asked about the diazepam, but I have to stick with it for now. I can't take it first thing in the morning or I won't make it through work.

This weekend was horrid. Well. Kind of. I have a lovely young man in my life who is the master of distraction. So between feeling sorry for myself to the point of another melt down, and dog walking up around the castle and watching movie after movie and chatting for hours, it wasn't so bad.

Just counting down the days until Thursday and the MRI.

I am just so tired from the lack of sleep, the not knowing, the knowing I have that much pain that is only masked by strong stuff, and what it is doing to my body.

Oh woe is me.

I sound dreadful, I know. I miss my horses. I miss Dubai. I want to breathe horse smells and muck out and just sit on a horse. And now I'm getting blubbery in work.

Hang in….the light is at the end of the tunnel, and you are now on the right path, I think.

Thanks FnB.

It's ridiculous. I can only put down all these emotions down to my lovely pills. I don't get this emotional during my lady time.

Sorry guys. Worse things truly happen in life. I'm just burbling away.

Hang in there Duffy! You're almost to the MRI and at that point, I betcha things start to roll faster.

Thanks guys.

I can't remember the last time I felt so down in the dumps. I think its pill related, and not knowing.

One thing is for certain, the guy I am dating is a keeper. He has seen my moods swing from happy as anything to near tears. Thankfully haven't had a melt down on him, but he has been a rock.

Still feel like I could wobble and burst in to tears. Happened again this morning when I was telling a friend that I got blubbery yesterday and had to run to the toilets to mop my face up.

People are understanding though.

I have physio tomorrow, and MRI thursday lunchtime. I am sick with nerves for it now. Just can't win.

Roll on good news... or any news.. and progression from there.

I need to go smell a horse.
