Oh, the pain!

Have you ever had a rib go out of alignment? Let me just say, the agony equals labor, and I ain't a kiddin.

I picked up a basket of clean laundry (granted, it was pretty dang full) and put it on my bed. It was sudden, like a knife in my back. I still don't know what I did that brought it on. Luckily, through past trials and errors, I know my body well. I've had a rib out of alignment before.

Most people don't even know it's possible, or that it's even happened to them. They think they've just thrown their back out. Severely!

So, I made an appointment with my chiropractor, took an 800mg ibuprofin pill, and laid down to relax on a nice soft bag of frozen vegetables. Nirvana.

I do this once a year and it is AWFUL. Good luck, girl, and I'm so sorry. It's usually something simply like laundry that does it to me too. I hope your appointment is for today and you don't have to suffer through the weekend. And thanks for the melatonin referral--I'm gunna pick some up today :-)
