Take Care Of Yourself

Blossom, Nature, Spring

Forgive my absence this weekend, on Friday evening I damaged my back muscle, couldn’t move and ended up in an ambulance to hospital. Whoopsie.
As well as posting you guys a little update, I also wanted to bring you a friendly warning; Take care of yourself.

For the past few months I’ve had back pain in the same area at the small of my back. I’ve treated it with heat but little, if any, rest.
I work too hard, I spend my evenings sitting on a broken sofa or curled up on the floor making jewellery. I carry heavy boxes at work and I never ask for help as “just because I’m a woman doesn’t make me weak“. Hmm.┬áThis resulted in me going to hospital, missing my friend’s wedding and not being able to pull up my own damn underwear after visiting the bathroom. Now who’s weak?

I’ve improved a lot since Friday and I can now get around the house on my own, up and down the stairs and carry things; The only thing I’m still struggling with is bending over so I’m going to be OK, but I have to make some changes. I need to equip myself with a better seat and workspace. This all costs money and time and effort, but you can’t put a price on your health.

If you’re cutting corners or putting something off, you need to make changes too. You are important, don’t forget that.

Regular posting shall now resume, all being well! Loves x xx

    oh god, i suffer with really bad back problems and feel your pain! My chiropractor always says to combat back pain with ice, as its a natural pain relief and also will reduce any swelling if you have any. I hope you rest up and feel better soon! x

    Oh god that sounds awful! Hope your back to normal soon!

    Oh no that sounds awful! I used to be terrible with going to the Doctors when I had a problem (whatever the opposite of a hypochondriac is I’m probably it!) I’m a lot better now because I work in a hospital and so have seen what putting things off can do, but I know I could still improve a bit more.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! x

    Oh you poor thing, I hope you feel better soon!! You’re so right, you cannot put a price on your health. Take care lovely!! xx

  • Erica

    Oh no, girl! I’m so sorry to hear. Definitely take the time to get well. I’m the same way about not asking for help so that I don’t look ‘weak.’ Not a good idea. Thanks for the reminder. Rest up and feel better soon!

  • Charlotte Rendall Tori Coltas

    Definitely we all need to make sure we take care of ourselves! I hope you are okay and are feeling a lot better now! Charlotte xx

    Thanks for the advice! I feel for you too, it’s amazing how much you’re limited when you have back problems, huh? x xx

    Thank you! :)

    Thank you :)

    Gosh, yes I’m terrible too, but mostly because almost every time I visit the Doctors they tell me to “come back if it gets any worse” which is annoying as I already leave it a while, hoping it will go away on it’s own ;)
