Today I am off to the Doctor to have a cortisone shot in my back. As of late I have had a back problem that has persisted for about a month. I have a big girl, who is no longer a baby, as much as I would like her to be. The Doctor gave me drugs and I don't want to be drugged anymore, as hard as that might be to believe. I hear the shot will hurt so I will have to update you on my return. This is our family Doctor who delivered Gracie, so you can imagine we have a very intimate relationship. I refer to him as my boyfriend. Not because of that (perv), but because he is so awesome and likable. I hope you haven't found this post offensive...I have just got to be me.

Nothing offensive there. I can understand being 'close'. Good luck at the Doctor.

I am deeply, deeply offended. How dare you stop taking drugs when they are offered freely!
I've never had a cortisone shot in my back, but I did have an epidural when I had Kacey. I would definitely recommend them. I've also had a spinal tap. Not as nice as the epidural. Don't get one of those.

Hope the shot does the trick. I've been to the chiroprater already once htis week and have been on an ice pack this evening. Seems to be helping. good luck.

Listen I have had two spinal taps in my life and let me say I thought they were great if you are having a baby, but not great if you are trying to run after a baby. I hope the shot works
