The Danger of Getting Out of Bed
I felt fine, then I got out of bed. This is something I have done all my life without adverse affects – until yesterday. It was time to get up, so I did so and suddenly my lower back hurt. I did not fall out of bed. I did not get up on the wrong side of the bed. I didn’t even jump out of bed. Ouch!
I understand that there is always a risk in getting up to face the cruel world, but in this case, it ambushed me. I now know that danger lurks even if I hide under my covers. Maybe I will just have to start staying in bed 24-7. It’s the only safe place I know.
Well, I will go back to spending time with my cold pack and my heating pad. I alternate them. It sounds dangerous to apply them to my back at the same time. Danger, everywhere danger.
Keep your eye peeled ( that sounds painful). Beware of danger out there.
