"Her body can hurt too much to move around, often she has to just go and lie down."
This is another line from my book which rang true yesterday. I'm learning to find comfort in sharing this part of my life, and the more I share the more I realize I'm not alone in this! My SIJ (Sacroiliac Joint, near the hip) dislocated while sleeping and I woke up in a lot of pain. Often I can push it back in, but was unable to yesterday & spent the whole day hurting a whole lot. I still managed to make myself do a few things but overall did not feel very accomplished.
My dad recently mailed me these awesome blocks (2nd photo) which I used to help push things where they needed to be until the muscles around the joint relaxed. Sometime in the night last night it must have gone back into place because I woke up today without any brain-pain-fog! It's so rare this happens so let's call it a Passover/Easter miracle! - 48 minutes ago
