4 Weeks of Hell and I don't mean Hell's Kitchen

After 4 weeks of hell of hurting my lower back and not being able to move or do much of anything, today I feel a bit better after 2 days on prednisone. Why did I not do this sooner. I tried the natural way first. I do not like to take prescribtion drugs. So I gave everything a try, chiropractic care (which did keep me aligned), Accupunture helped for 3 days out of the four weeks, stretching and yoga did help elevate the pain for an hour or two. I guess the inflammation was just too bad for me to heal so when I found out my mom is now battleing breast cancer I gave into taking the prednisone so I can be there for her.
We just resigned our lease for a year and the day after I heard this pop in my lower left side of my back. And I knew, this pop was farmiliar to me, since it happen before. When it happen in the past a few extra appointments at the chiropractor helped and with in 2-3 weeks I was fine. I guess this time was the last straw for that spot. So next week I am going for an MRI to see why this keeps happening.
So it has been about 4 weeks since I have been to our NYC apartment and this weekend I will attempted one night at least to see the views I miss so much!

Good News, Bad News

The good news is we officially resigned the lease for our NYC apartment and will have it now until September 30, 2012.

The bad news is a day later I pulled something and my sciatica has come back the worst it has ever been. I have been on bed rest now for two weeks and missed two weekends in the city. I especially am disappointed to miss a 3 day weekend (Labor Day weekend) which is also my Birthday weekend in the city!

Life goes on and I hope to return next weekend and start bringing more blog posts of things I will be doing!
