wst february 21. buckets of paint.

buckets of paint.

I need buckets of paint. I want to change the color in my bedroom, my kitchen, my dining room, and maybe my bathroom. I did a lot of research, but I still don’t know exactly what colors I’d use. I have tons of paint chips—maybe too many because it’s making it difficult to come to any decisions.

(As you can see, I’m into neutrals. They promote relaxation. I need some of that.)

It doesn’t even matter if I choose colors, though. With my back pain, I won’t be able to do any of those rooms by myself, and my husband is always “too tired” or “too busy” to help. *eyeroll*

Maybe I’ll just start on my own. Then, if I can’t finish because I’m in pain, he’ll have no choice but to step in and help. Hmm. That’s actually a good plan. Maybe I’ll try that.

Or… I’ll invite this sexy beast over to help me. Paint, I mean. Help me paint!

p.s. — I’m really sick of not being able to do things because of my back pain and my depression and my anxiety.

  2. Pain medicine for the back pain?
    Hot water bag??

    • I’ve tried it all. Ice, dry heat, moist heat, pain meds, physical therapy, a few different types of injections. Nothing has helped. The pain used to be confined to the left side of my lower back, but now it’s also on the right… and I think that side is now even worse than the left!

      • Oh nooo
        Maybe see a doctor asap?
        Since its now on both side!

        • I’ve seen a few doctors. My primary sent me to a surgical spine specialist even though she didn’t think I was a candidate for surgery. He agreed. He referred me to the pain management doctor. He tried a few different injections in my back, but they didn’t work. At my follow-up appointment, he told me there was nothing more he could do for me.

          I have an appointment scheduled in a couple of weeks to see a third guy. He does a relatively new procedure that has to do with the vertebrae themselves, rather than the nerves. It’s a bit more invasive than the injections, but I think I have to try it because I’m out of options. I have no idea if my health insurance will approve it. If not, I can’t do it.
