Hi everyone, have not been online for a while due to being really ill with some weird virus and then in the same process pulling/ripping something in my back which i believe is the upper part of my spine.
A big thanks goes to all that have kept up with my blog and kept reading even while i was gone, i did not disappear for a week and a half because i wanted to but because i needed to. At one stage i felt pretty horrible because i thought i might have seriously done my back in for good but doctors are good and will be able to fix this with good time.
So here’s the low down, i am probably going to need to have surgery or intense therapy and some re-adjustment of my body as my ribs have popped out of place too (doesn’t sound too nice right?). I am okay though overall (i hate seeming like i’m looking for sympathy but i will pull through whatever happens), I have to get some further scans done and see what can be done, it may be that i have to take a year out of university because of this mess as it looks so far that i need surgery and to get my back slowly to how it was before which may require me to train my walking/sitting patterns etc. I have barely been able to walk very far the last 4 days because of this injury.
All the clicking and snapping going on in my back is horrible as it also gives referred pain. This injury is something i already had but has gotten worse, when i first got this injury a few years ago i did not think much of it but it is slowly becoming a burden and i should of got it checked when i heard it snap a few years ago. This is actually preventing me from doing specifics such as extreme/tough sports, going on roller coasters or simply going out more often as I’ve been told by my doctor to avoid any situations where i might get thrown around or smashed. Of course i don’t want my back or my spine to get any worse then it already is and its dreadful that i cant go travelling or do many thing a normal 24 year old should do like working in the week or even doing something that requires a lot reflexology. It makes me avoid the very things i want to do, i simply cannot get on a roller coaster ride without the worry that i might damage my back further by being thrown around. I had to drop recently going to a theme park with some friends because of this.
On the other hand i’m still positive and happy :) its rather annoying to have this problem as i’m struggling to take long walks, to walk with balance, to bend certain ways, to crouch or simply to sit or stand in certain postures.
Anyway i don’t want to make my post all about my back and personal problems but i had to say it so people know where i am at and that i am not wandering off, the fact i have encountered this problem may be telling me i need a good break from the PC for a while.
This post of course is just to celebrate a big 2500 views reached; i have not forgot you all and will be back every now and then to post on your blogs and mine. At the moment sitting down in my pc chair is actually making my posture worse too.
On another note i will leave you with some things that Jay likes to eat! I am hungry at this very moment you see ;)
- Pizza (Hawaiin and Barbecue flavour)
- Tagliatelle with Carbonara
- Sub Sandwiches with Tuna
- Lucky Charms (cereal)
- Chicken Chasseur
- Balti Curry
- Sweet & Sour Chicken
- Chow Mein with Chinese Pork
Again thanks to everyone for liking, commenting and following thus far. All keep up the good work with your blogs! :) Todays advice is for me to tell everyone that they should always to go to Doctors straight away even if you think your problems will correct themselves, never leave them affecting you in the background. Until then will catch you all later!
