|09:03 pm - 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.

Glad you'll have the weekend to relax and recover!
Thank you. I will settle for some uninterrupted sleep, only now I'm afraid to go to bed in case I don't get it.
*hugs* hope you manage some sleep and rest
...I'm a hard bed kind of girl and occasionally will lie/sleep on floors because I feel that my back needs it. ... on the other hand my sis sleeps on a bed that my back will protest in, but works for her.
and I empathise with you on the aches and pains ... my body is a bunch of since yesterday and has yet to go away too!

Take enough muscle relaxants with pain killers and you can sleep on anything. Alas that you're not supposed to sleep on a heating pad, because that's what I really want to do.
I used to sleep on floors too, quite happily. Now there's the problem of getting up from the floor that lets that one out.
Sympathy on the aches and pains. Growing older sucks, end story.
