Me and Shakespeare

Quote du jour: Our faults, dear Brutus, lie not in our stars, but in our selves.
- Will Baby, Julius Ceasar

Better. Could be worse, anyway. Though I do think that if I'm going to feel like I'm being stabbed in the back, I should be wearing a toga in the ides of March. Interesting to note (well, interesting to me), that beer therapy has no effect. I thought alcohol acted as an analge-, an analg- a thing that made pain go away for a while. But no.

Still going to go Cold Carrot today. No food that has even the slightest inclination to aid the inflammatory response (e.g. anything with saturated fat) shall pass these lips.

Exercise du jour: one gentle walk at lunch.

Hope the pain continues to decrease until it goes away.
Way, far away.
And gets lost, never to return.

Muscle relaxants... seriously.

Sorry the beer didn't help. Call the doctor.

The Merry said...

I thought I'd just take the bottles back and ask for a refund :)

Amanda said...

Ouch, I'm sorry about your back :(

I hear that ice cream has a lovely anti-inflammatory effect :P

Hope you feel better soon!

Poor you, what about a long soak in a hot might help.

Mystery Illnesses are just the worst. How's the Cold Carrot going? I think gentle walking sounds ideal.

Did five miles (in the rain) on bike then led my splashy old ladies in the pool.
Problem with all that movement? It makes me VERY hungry!!!

Are you visualizing Perfect Health? Couldn't hurt. (Unless it DOES hurt, then stop.)

Visualizing! Worth a try.
