pigtails

(no subject)

Today is one of the days when I feel like I'm on top of things. I am hesitant to attribute this to waking up with no pain two mornings in a row, because we've also had two days of sunshine, I'm wearing clothes I like instead of boring business ones, for the first time I can feel my lower abdominal muscles engaging as I walk, and tonight I get to see rivet. And I'm ovulating, which always makes me feel 10 feet tall and bulletproof.

So while I can't rule the painlessness of my back out as a factor, there are lots of other reasons for feeling that I'm not actually an impostor into the adult world of competence today. Just saying.

Voltaren update: Day two, no pain. I can feel it niggling round the edges and *wanting* to hurt. When I stood up this morning my back went "I really should get onto that hurting thing, but I can't be arsed." I suspect that this morning would have been one of the ones where I'd have to lie on the floor to put my undies on, if not for the Voltaren.

I think that means it's working. I'll call the doc and make the blood test appointment today.
