Welcome weekend

Mid-back has been stiff for a while; left hip has been spasmy for about a week; left leg's IT band has been increasingly tight. Last night the whole shebang blew up. Couldn't lie on my side as I usually do; couldn't lie on my back either; couldn't sleep sitting up; couldn't take muscle relaxant because I had to be up early this morning. At last went to side room where the futon was somehow more accommodating to my aching everything and copped a few hours. Makes me wonder if the mattress, usually too soft by my definitions, isn't in fact soft enough, and if I should put the mattress cover back on, or rather under, even though the mattress slips off it as I thrash about at night.

Whatever, trotted back to my physiotherapist who told me to stop doing ITB stretches for the nonce and spend the weekend with my feet up. Which I shall do, doped out of my gourd on muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories.

Discover BTW that the small water cooking method works on vegetables, or rather, asparagus. Can't believe it works on carrots, because nothing does.
