Ow

My back has been all jarred up for about a week now.  I can’t hunch over for very long, sit or stand in one spot for that matter or it stiffens up to the point of gut wrenching pain and spasms.  I guess I could call the number on the back of Rich’s insurance card to see if Chiropractor visits are covered, but quite honestly I am sick of sitting on hold.  Between my bank and the PA Unemployment Office I was on hold about an hour and a half today.

Your call is important to us, please continue to hold.

I really should go and see my family doctor too.  A few weeks ago when I seen my OB Gyn, she informed me I have a belly button hernia.  This is probably part of the reason my stomach isn’t going down completely from having Owen.  I never really got clear answers as to whether or not I should be lifting heavy objects.  I lift heavy stuff everyday — Owen, the garbage, laundry, etc, etc.  Ok, so maybe this is part of the reason my back is messed up too.  I should probably ask for more help from the hubby, but I’m as stubborn as a mule.  I need a second opinion on this hernia thing….I don’t like taking a wait and see approach about the prospect of my intestines popping out of my stomach.

Is there anything else I can complain about at midnight?  Oh yeah.  I have been having trouble getting to bed most nights.  I usually sit up until about midnight, drift off, wake up 2 hours later and then drift off again, waking at around 7 feeling like I got no sleep whatsoever.  I would kill for one complete night of sleep.  I guess I could use some of the Trazadone my psych gave me, but that shit makes me feel like I’m a zombie the next day. 

I guess I’ll just sit here and watch more infomercials.  That’s always entertaining.

Ok, I’m gonna try to sleep now.  Really.
