i have sciatica.
woo hoo (i think if i say "woo hoo" afterwards, it'll lessen the pain)!!!
it's a good thing i made yesterday's post before i went to the doctor, otherwise right now i'd be on a total pity-party/bitch-fest kick.
seriously, folks, this thing really sucks, but as mr. de campo, sir, would say, "embrace the suck."
so, i'm gonna hug and squeeze and love the shit out of my sciatica.
i'm not even going to get into the details of the dull yet excruciating pain that's radiating from my left butt cheek throughout my left lower back and on down to left my foot. no, sir!
instead, i'm going to cut this post short and head over to my classroom to do more work and embrace the suck. then, later tonight, i'll alternate between embracing the suck and yoga, which is what my doctor recommended . . . and vicodin (which i love).
i even went out and bought this awesome giant rubber ball and a bunch of dvds on how to use it, as well as some other vids on pilates and yoga. and now that i'm thinking about it, the new ceramics teacher at my school is a (fantastic) yoga instructor, so maybe she'll give me some pointers . . . and if that doesn't work, hydrocodoneland here i come!
