My back is absolutely killing me this morning, worst pain I've had for a while, and balance is totally off - I can hardly stand without holding onto something for fear of falling over. I don't feel able to even have a shower, as our shower is in the bath and there's no way I'll be able to get in and out of the bath. I'm sitting in my armchair with a hot water bottle behind my back, hopefully the pain will ease in a bit and I'll be able to get on with things (like having a wash and getting dressed!!). Just sitting around doesn't do any good, I need to get moving, but right now the pain is defeating me. At least I can use the time to get a few lists (menus for the next week, things to do) written, and a few Christmas cards drawn.
