Yesterday I had a ton of things to get accomplished. You know, like paying bills, running errands, making beds, laundry, cooking, cleaning and making myself look presentable for later when hubby gets in from work.

I admit it, I am one of the ladies of the world that take a few minutes to freshly powder my face, apply a day of listick and run a brush trough my hair before hubby arrives home for the evening. This is not always possible, but most nights it is.

Last night we ate supper, all got ready and went and picked up my Daddy. We went to my 10 year old nephew's first bb game of the season (his Dad, my my borther is the coach). They lost but played well. the other team was huge and kept stealing the ball. About half way through the game I noticed my hip and leg and back were uncomfortable. I was actually in pain.

The more i thought about it, I recongized this pain. It's my sciatic nerve. The only other time I experienced this was during my pregnancy with the boys. Boy, am I miserable.

It eases up when I lay a certain way and that is the only time I find relief. We have some Celebrex here at home, but I had a hives type reaction to it a few years back, so that is out of the question. I am going to call my friend K, the pharmacist and see if any of hubby's anti-inflamitories will work for me.

This wife and Mommy is in sweats this morning with out her make-up. I couldn't get in the shower this morning and barely got my face washed and teeth brushed.

I have a ginorous to-do list but it may hvae to wait. I have the boys in front of the tv and they are liking it. They watch very little tv, but this Mommy needed a helper this am They are watching public television with a spelling/abc/word cartoon on. I don't know the name but they love this show.

Have a great day. I hope to feel some better soon and will post more later.

Lay on the floor and put your legs up on the sofa. That always seems to work for me. Hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse then having a pain in your butt. :)

Oh, I hope you feel better soon. That sounds awful, sciatic pain. I will keep praying for you.

Marva, Dear, make friends with a chiropractor. Mine has saved my butt (ha, ha) through all 5 pregnancies. I'm not fond of medication if I can help it. I hope you feel better!

I had a bad run with that after I was injured in a head on collision. I went ot physical therapy every day for a year. You need to sit straight with something like a small pillow in the small of your back, sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees, and maintain good posture at all times. I took motrin for my pain - if it doesn't get better, you need to go to a dr. Good luck, and no heavy lifting!
