I was in class all weekend, and last month my low back problems flared up considerably right before the weekend. I was in so much pain I didn't know if I would be able to make it through the weekend, but I did, because of a lawn chair that they set out for me that allowed me to put my feet up and keep my back in a good position.
This month, my back started flaring up again the week before school, and I realized it was from sitting at the computer so much the week before school completing my homework!
I did not have 'the chair' this month, but I did go into class prepared with Thermacare Heat Wraps for my low back. One per day. Fabulous. I also made a point to sit in the front row of the room once I realized that if I put my feet up on the stage whenever possible, I was not in pain.
It worked like a charm. I had already set up an appointment to see my chiropractor today, and Gordon needed to see her as well. I didn't feel in desperate need of an adjustment, but Gordon hadn't been to her new office, and wanted me to show him where it was. She adjusted Gordon, and checked me and I didn't need an adjustment. At all. We were both surprised! And I went to yoga class again tonight to keep my back in place for as long as possible.
And school this weekend was great. We had 5 projects due since it was the end of the quarter, and I got 100% on all of them. I was stunned. I'm getting straight A's in this program, and I've gotten a few 100's, but I've never gotten 100's on EVERYTHING I turned in for the weekend! I was beside myself with excitement. So that means I should have a VERY solid A in the class.
