Can’t Get Away

I mentioned I needed a break from blogging yesterday. Just because I said I needed one doesn’t mean I am actually taking one.

My blog post the day before was written in haste as I was sick, my back hurt, and I lacked any energy.

I’m still sick, my back still hurts, and I’m still feeling a little low today. But that doesn’t mean I can stay away from this wonderful blog and an even more wonderful community of bloggers. What I realized from this experience is that I’ve been blogging so consistently these days that it’s hard to stop. I’ve been blogging for over a year now. I can’t just quit cold turkey, walk away, and live life the same way.

Not that it’s a bad thing but you’re just going to have to deal with my posts, whether they are good or bad, long or short, happy or sad. You can’t get rid of me, no matter how hard you try. And I’m not about to let a stuffy nose or some back pain stop me from blogging either.

Oh, and neither should you. Otherwise, I’ll track you down (regardless of where you live) and I’ll force you to follow your heart by doing what you love so you’re happy. Don’t make me do that. I shouldn’t have to tell you something so blatantly obvious except I already did. Now you’re just going to have to deal with it.

    1. Thank you for the concern. I guess my body is trying to tell me to take things a little easier. Hmm I’m not even sure what’s wrong exactly. There was an immense amount of pain in my lower back, more so near the left side than the right. Aside from resting and moving less, I don’t know how else to make my back feel better. :\


      1. Hmm… well, from those vague symptoms, it’s hard to narrow it down. You don’t have to tell me how/when it started hurting, but it might help. Without more specifics, I’d recommend taking an anti-inflammatory of some kind. Ibuprofen/motrin, etc. and grab a heating pad. Don’t fall asleep with it on, though.

        I hope you didn’t hurt yourself dancing. It’d be sad if you missed out on your daily dancing as you’ve mentioned in previous posts. :-/ And I’m sorry to mention it, but dancers often have issues with back pain. So I hope that wasn’t the cause. Because then I’d feel really bad telling you that.


      2. Sorry for being so vague. It started hurting on Saturday. In the morning, shortly after I woke up. OK I’ll take your advice. Ha. I can promise you I won’t sleep with a heating pad on my back. It’s hard enough for me to fall asleep without distractions. The heating pad would just keep me awake.

        I hope it didn’t either. Actually I refuse to believe dancing was the cause even though my parents believe I did something to my back without knowing while I was dancing. LALALALALA. Not listening! Oh no. There you go bursting my bubble again. 😉

        Feel bad. You should. Gr…how dare you. I hate that every action, even the good ones, has a reaction. And the reaction or effect is bad too. 😦


      3. Yeah, those laws of physics really catch up with us, don’t they? 🙂 I’m sure you’ll be fine. 60% of all back pain goes away on its own, we just never know which 60% it will be.

        You probably just slept on it funky. I’m sure it’ll go away soon. Just take it easy, my friend.


      4. Yea life catches up with you sometime. I think I will be. It’s not as bad now. I’m trying to be more careful with my back. I’m hoping this is the 60%. That’s what I initially thought. Thank you for the concern and help. I owe you one. 😉
