Almost out of the woods

Today I had another round of Lidocaine epidurals in my back and new pain killers prescribed.  I'm starting a new yoga regime as well.  I'm hoping this will keep me out of bed -- right now I'm spending half my week in bed.  Stay tuned -- if all goes well tomorrow, I'll start posting the book reviews and giveaways.



I've missed you all!

  1. I hope the new treatment works for you! I feel for you, I know what my dad has gone through with his back problems. ((Hugs))

  3. We'Ve missed you too Lori! I hope the yoga helps you. I am meaning to turn over a new yoga leaf too, I know it is such a positive thing to have in your life and I am the least flexible person you'll ever meet, and getting worse with every year! Love the little box pendant on that piece - GORGEOUS.

  5. I've just discovered this author and his books on pain, specifically back pain. Thought you might be interested. I'm reading one of his books now. http://www.amazon.com/John-E.-Sarno/e/B001IOBML8/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1

  6. SO sorry you're going through the pain and inability to do what you love. Knowing others that have suffered I know this is serious. My hubby had great luck, after years of back pain, with physical therapy. Interestingly it sounded like he was doing pilates and yoga!

    Take care and look forward to hearing more soon.

  11. Hope something works for you! You're far too vital to spend your days in constant pain. Too much living to do!

    Take care and best wishes.

  13. Oh, Lori. I hope they work. I went through three epidurals (plus one to undo one that gave me a blinding headache -- and I never get headaches). Unfortunately, the only one that took away the pain was the one that gave me the headache. Nice trade-off, right? The pain mgmt doctor said my only option is surgery. What a pain (literally and figuratively!). Hope you feel better soon!
