- Wedding: August 2012
So yesterday I woke up in excrutiating pain through my shoulder and neck. I thought maybe I slept funny, and I recently got a new pillow. I’m prone to back issues, so I switched back to my old pillow and figured it would go away. This morning when I woke up my back was in so much pain I couldn’t even lift my arm to wash or put up my hair- I had to wake up Fiance to do it for me so I could go out. I can’t take time off work because I’m using all my PTO for the honeymoon. This time of year I really love swimming and I’ve been doing P90x workouts in a last ditch effort to drop some weight before the wedding. With my back in this much pain I can’t do anything. I went to an emergency chiropractor visit this morning and she said that I have two misaligned discs which are causing my muscles to overcompensate and creating such pain. She popped my neck but my back just wouldn’t give and I’m still in excruciating pain. I’m frustrated because my wedding is just a month away and now not being able to work out, not getting good sleep, etc is making me gain weight.
Also feeling bummed about my bridal shower which was 1.5 weeks ago. There were several people who couldn’t make it which is totally fine. However, I haven’t received a gift or even just a card from any of them. I know it’s still pretty close so I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt, but I’m a little hurt by it, especially since these are aunts/close family members and a couple of them are girls also getting married this summer who I bought very generous gifts for when they had their showers. Maybe I’m just PMSing and being selfish, but it irks me that I’ve spent a lot of time and money for their showers and haven’t heard anything.
End vent. Thanks for listening. You girls are great for support!
