Okay so on Saturday night at one am I was in so much pain I was crying. There was something seriously wrong with my spine. My dad took me to the emergency room at the hospital and I just kept getting worse until eight am (seven hours later) when one of the doctors finally got around to seeing me (no, it wasn't busy, it's just the shittiest ER in the area). They did x-rays and I have Scoliosis.

While that's something I'll have my whole life, this particular back spasm should be gone in the next few days but until it goes away I'm in agony and I'm totally drained in every sense of the word. I'm so tired because I'm in so much pain I can't sleep.

I'm on percosets, but they aren't strong enough. I think that says something.

I'm going to go now because the pain makes me so sick I've got a blinding headache an fever, but I can't cool down because my back muscles need to stay warm.

Somebody just put me out of my misery.

Malware is evil. I scan my computer all the time for it.

*hugs back*

Would you? That would be so nice... As long as it's not any trouble :D

It's not any trouble at all - I go to great lengths to find excuses to bake. Cupcakes are my specialty but I can also make some pretty awesome cookies. What would you like? :D

I like everything! Maybe cupcakes? I've been craving them...

I do not know how to mail cupcakes and you live 2 days' drive away from me when I'm even on your continent. >:( By gum, though, I'll figure out how to do it for you! You may get a smooshed box of cake crumbs and icing by the time I'm done, haha.

Just to be safe, what's your favorite kind of cookie?

Where do you live in the States?

Ummm.... Hmm. That's a harder question than it should be. I I'll have to go with M&M cookies with oatmeal rasin as a runner-up.

Just outside of Columbus, OH. Google Maps tells me it would take me 1 day 17 hours to drive to where you be. I'm two hours' drive away from Canada but not your part of Canada. (why yes I did stalk your city on Facebook, yes that does make me a terrible person)

What about oatmeal chocolate chip? Or peanut butter M+M? Hmmm. I'm feeling inventive. You'll probably get your cookies as soon as I can bake them after I get home... bah, might not be for another month if the postal system works out. But you deserve 'em!

I've found, that for me, pain killers do nothing but speed me up, make me hot, and give me headaches. Muscle relaxers are the way to go.

In my elementary school, they checked everyone for scoliosis- is that an uncommon practice? Is your condition enough to warrant a brace for a few years? (all my knowledge is from judy fucking blume, and I feel like I should apologize for that).

<3<3<3 I can recommend a muscle cream that works really well- probably won't be totally effective, but might help? It's biofreeze, just in case.

Yeah, I'm off the percocets now. They just made me really dizzy and tired. I'm now on anti-inflamatories and extra strength muscle relaxers. My last percocet will wear off in like forty-five minutes and that's when I start taking the new stuff.

Nope, I've never heard of any schools in my area doing that (though that would be a good idea).

Thanks :) I'll pick that up when I get a chance, I need something for long-term use so that'll work.
