My Tailbone Hates Me

Standard

I am STILL going to the chiropractor.  Which is pretty upsetting because they originally thought I’d only need 2-3 weeks of treatment and we just closed out on week 4…with appointments scheduled for next week.  Not only is it frustrating that it’s not helping as much but it’s putting quite the dent in our wallets at $40-$50 a treatment 3 times a week.

My doctor is started a new treatment last Friday called the Graston Technique.  Anyone ever heard of it?  I was pretty close to cancelling this appointment after doing what I do and taking it to Google.  As you can see from the picture below, it does seem like it would be rather painful/intimidating (Joe said the tools looked like medieval torture instruments…thanks babe).  LargeInstrumentSetWeb2

I was pleasantly surprised that it actually wasn’t too bad at all.  The idea is, its supposed to loosen your deeper tissue muscles.  So, it looks like we’ll be doing two more of these appointments and then I’m going to have to put my foot down and just tell them to send me to pain management.  Though I’m not exactly sure what that will entail.  But we obviously can’t keep spending this kind of money for no results.

I’m anxiously awaiting taking my first Clomid pill tomorrow.  For some reason I keep picturing it being a magical moment…like I’ll instantly feel like it’s going to work or something.  Silly I know.  From what I’ve read the chances of me having any side effects on 50mg seems slim.  I guess that’s good but in my mind side effects=its working.

I’m also anxiously awaiting my husband to come home to me.  He’s in Vegas for the weekend celebrating a friend’s bachelor party.  I’m glad he went and is hopefully having a good time.  He deserves it.  But it definitely gets lonely in the house with just me and the dogs after about a day.  I work from home or “in the field” so I already get a lot of time to myself during the week and I really enjoy my weekends with him.  We’ve gotten spoiled with our 3 day weekends since he works 10 hour days 4 days a week.

Will most likely post an update on how I’m feeling tomorrow on Day 1.  Hope everyone is enjoying the remainder of their weekends!
