You're in my thoughts, friend. I hope you enjoy your time with your friend!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Hi guys!!

Still no update, but I wasn't able to get online whilst I was away. A week in the Scottish countryside, by the beach and all that fresh air was just what I needed!

I'm thankfully not on the Diazepam anymore. So no emotional moments!

Reset all my buttons and feeling amazing. Still in a lot of pain without my happy pills, but we can move on Thursday and see whats happening!

In the mean while, my poor mother was rushed to hospital. They say it never rains but it pours aha. She'd had problems with her knee, and then whilst sat on the floor during story time, her knee locked and wouldn't unlock. The school called an ambulance, and to cut a long story short, she ripped the muscles front side and back. She's had them stitched together and now is bed bound for six weeks with an orange foot and a knee brace. She jokinhly said that if I am in for an op we can room share, then at home I can be the legs and she'll be the hands haha!

As for the alcohol, thank you very much for your concern mslady :) I did have a couple of drinks every other day and was fine. I drank a couple of glasses of wine two nights in a row and then paid for it the day after. No more induglence now, though.. food and alcohol were abused (as well as my bank account!) last week.

Hey DaffyDuck, there are other muscle relaxants / spasm relievers besides diazepam, which is a bit of a sledgehammer! Maybe discuss those with your doctor, or get a second opinion. Or do you think your doctor is purposely trying to knock you out for enforced rest maybe?

My chiropractor likes doxylamine succinate for treating muscle spasm. It still makes you sleepy, but not comatose like diazepam. Individual responses obviously vary - but just half a diazepam would be enough to knock me personally out for 12h.
