Computer and Back problems

Just wanted to let everyone know.  I had to stay off the computer for awhile as I have a slipped disc and setting here was very painful. Last night was my frist night to finally get some rest and am feeling better.  Yesterday my backlight on my computer screen went.  God must really want me to stay off this computer for awhile.  So until I get it fixed I have to hold a trouble light up to it to barely see the screen.  So all of this has limited my ability to blog and visit anyone..    But it has been interesting just laying around and letting my mind wonder without pressure of getting things done.   Something I haven’t experience for quite a few years now.  Life without staring into the computer for hours isn’t such a bad thing.  Anyway my friends hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and if my computer isn’t fixed by New Years I am wishing you a Happy New Year.

Hugs Carrie

I've been on a sort of holiday break myself with so much going on that I haven't had much online time.

Slipped have I ever been there done that! Naproxen helps, Ibuprofen is better if your stomach can tolerate it. Plenty of rest, alternate heat and ice packs, no more than 20 minutes of either at one time. A good way to limit the time you apply the heat is to put a damp towel in the microwave for 4 minutes, fold it and apply to the effected area. It will stay hot for about 15 - 20 minutes and the moist heat helps a lot.

Unless you absolutely can't stand the pain any longer don't let the doc talk you into surgery. For every person I've talked to who had good results from surgery there has been 20 who didn't, myself included and I've had 2 surgeries.

Get better soon. I'm praying for the best for you.
