I might never be Hulk..

I threw my back out again.  It happened in training, in the most idiotic of manners. I was fine the whole hour, training hard and there was one last exercise that was sort of a red flag. A deep squat with a weight on the shoulders.  And this very fit, very big, very tall, black belt guy said he wouldn't do it because he had back issues.  But then there was this tiny not  very fit lady under 50 kilos pulling it off easily.  And I just had to try it. Which led to me realizing that indeed my back issues are treatable my head isn't.
Why did I do it? If I just skipped that last exercise I would have practiced there all week. Instead I am sitting in my heating pad waiting for my next muscle relaxant and my physical therapy appointment tomorrow. Sometimes the depths of my denial are kind of ridiculous.
So, I am here to admit it.  My name is Georgina and I have a serious back problem. Although,  I have covered great distance I am not Wonderwoman, nor Lara Croft as I often fancy myself. My enthusiastic impulses will not keep getting the better of me. As a sort of punishment - prudent way of action I will not be training for the rest of the week.
Other than that, everything is going smoothly here in our witchy house.  Child, husband, pets and flowers are thriving,  patiently awaiting for me to get better to take care of them and feed them proper meals. Hopefully,  by tomorrow I will be back on my feet. I am very optimistic because this time my back spasm feels to be getting better a bit quicker.  Probably because I took a day off from work yesterday which I never do because of my back, took pills which I also never do and arranged a chiropractic alignment for tomorrow.  Look at me acting like a grown up...
Now I just have to remember I might never get to be hulk...

We always do it. We always push just that little bit too hard

As one who suffers from chronic back problems along with Fibromyalgia and few other things, I have learned to start saying no...the hard way! I have to remind myself at times that I can no longer do this or that. I can be feeling good and think I can do something but I learned not to push it. I hope your back is "back" to normal soon and don't worry about being a hulk. He was kind of ugly..LOL

Okay Hulkina, are you crazy? It's not easy being green is it? Your life is different now. You have to watch out with everything you do and that includes when you try to be Hulkina. That one exercise could have also taken out your knees. Be vigilant about your body, babysister. It could cost you.

The Hulk has never been able to have any nice things. He always smashes... So I'm you might never be the Hulk.

I hope things went well at the chiropractor.

Ouch, back issues suck! Maybe grab yourself a collection of back-supporting exercises, and after doing those regularly for a year or so, you will be able to squat-press whatever you want. (This old lady is sitting on a lumbar support cushion and typing with a "bent" ergonomic keyboard to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome. Old dogs can learn new tricks - even if we don't like it! ^^ )

Back injuries can be the worst...I hope it heals quickly, my friend!

We are just silly human beings, do things without thought *grin* I'm quite the expert too... Take time, fix your back, and off you go again. Love and hugs, my Greek Witch friend
