Apparently it is possible to have too much fun because I got up this morning and felt fine but when I got out of the car at work, I did something to my back and by the end of the day I could hardly stand upright. So all day I walked around like a ninety year old woman, hunched over and looking like I needed a cane. Are you kidding me? It's always something with me. Sheesh. And we were crazy busy at work today too. So now I'm laying flat on my back on the couch and I literally cannot move at all, my back hurts so bad. Perhaps it was all of the loading/unloading of the car for our trip. Perhaps it was sleeping on an air mattress for two nights. Perhaps it was hiking up(and down) the steep trails getting to and from the beach, or the long walks on the sand I took. Whatever it was, it sucks. Lucky for me I have tomorrow off, although I had planned on getting a bunch of stuff done and now I'm pretty I won't get any of it done. Sigh. This has never happened to me before. I don't even know how to treat it. Heat packs or ice? Stay immobile, or try some light stretching? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm off to G**gle "back pain" and take some Tylenol. 'Night.
