It's 1:30 in the morning and I am wide awake. My back went out while I was doing nothing. I had 8 injections in my spine 2 weeks ago, and they didn't work. Honestly, I lay face down on a table and take about 10 shots to numb the area, then 8 whopping injections into the lumbar and hip areas in order to make my life manageable, and yet today, it wasn't manageable...So vicodin and muscle relaxers and tons of diet coke have been my weekend diet. The combination makes me nauseous and so I add a lot of saltines to keep me from spending hours in the bathroom hurling.
