Vacation curse is still in full effect!

   Tue, September 2, 2008 - 10:48 AM
I was so excited to head out to BMD for a weekend of camping, dancing and frolicing. I had Friday and Tuesday off so I could take a nice long weekend and still have time to recoup before heading back to work on Wed. My friend Jessica, who is just getting into the whole Burner thing was going to come with me. She got all kinds of camping gear, stocked up on bacon and beer and was ready to go by 10am. About the time I woke up. So I'm in full on getting ready mode, cleaning out the coolers so I can put my beer and ice in there when WHOOPS my back totally spasmed. It was the worst it has ever been.

I layed on my living room floor for 8 hours on Friday. At first - slowly trying to inch my way to my phone so I could call for help. Only to realize when I reached it....it was just about dead. I got out a few text messages before it completely died, but no one could help me as I couldn't reach the buzzer to let them in. My phone finally charged enough so that I could call my BFF who has keys to my place to come help me. He arrived and him and his husband helped me off the floor, to the bathroom and got me some food.

I spent the entire weekend on my couch and in my bed. And I am still here today, feeling slightly better.

Yes. I'm bitter. I can haz injury-free vacation?

oh sweetie!!!!! What a horrible experience. I am *so* glad to hear you were able to get help. One of my family stories ...ya know the ones that get told a million times at the dinner table...... was one of the same thing happening to my mother when I was an infant and my brother was three years old. He carried me to her and we all hung out on the kitchen floor until my father got home from work. That is a unique kind of pain and scary situation. I hope you are doing better. (((((((((((((GLNG))))))))))))

Oh you poor baby!!!! You have my deepest sympathy, I know exactly how that feels and it's horribly excruciating and totally paralyzing and there is nothing you can do but take drugs (not the fun kind) and let it run it's course. Just Saturday night I was sitting here with ice packs on both wrists and ankle, thinking about you at BMD, hoping you didn't fall and hurt yourself in the dark!! Shit. Shit. Shit. This is just wrong.
