The tablets are helping me to sleep marginally better - they don't stop me waking up in pain every time I turn over, but I don't lie awake for hours now, I go back to sleep fairly quickly. They're not doing anything for the pain during the day as yet, but it's early days, hopefully they will help with the pain in due course.
Thank you for all your supportive comments and kindness, it helps a lot.
I'm going to take a few days off blogging, I have nothing to write about right now (and nobody wants to hear about my backache all the time!) and blogging when I have nothing interesting to say is just a chore - and boring for you lot!
I'm just going to draw and make a few simple cards over the next few days, biding time until my osteo appointment a week on Monday, there's nothing much else I can do, I can't concentrate on anything right now. Maybe a bit of crocheting too.
Take care of yourselves, I'll be back soon.
