Sacroiliac Strain

I just talked with Matt's dad who is a GP and via phone (it was an amusing interview i must admit!) i was diagnosed with having a Sacroiliac Strain. Essentially a strain of the lower back which hurts like hell and doent let me sit down or move like i move!

Obviously not deadly and apparently common in girls, or so the GP said. Damn me! Being the weaker sex i once again inflict pain upon myself. And there is very little i can do.

Sacroiliac strain is described by a painful stretching of the ligaments about the sacroiliac joint; bending, lifting, and hyperextension of this joint are motions capable of producing a torsion strain resulting in the clinical presentation of an acute onset with tenderness over the joint, accentuated by palpation.

Strain of this joint may be favored by the soft tissue hormone softening effects of pregnancy, by lifestyle, or occupational performance of long periods of bending and lifting. Especially when these activities are performed in a manner not characteristic of proper spinal biomechanical conduct, strain is apt to occur.

The article then goes on to say i have to have long and complicated treatments. All im really worried about is being able to sit down for more than 5 minutes wiuthout needing to stand up bceause of the pain. How am i going to manage in the exam room? Sitting down for 3 hrs strainght??? Not a chance!

I must avoid: exercises that strain the strain (huh?), bending it in weird and complicated ways, any type of pain!

I must do: excercises to help my back, stretches that strengthen my lower back and the sacroiliac muscle, gentle exercises.

Grr.

Have you ever really loved a woman?

I absolutely love this song.

Its one of those songs that remind me of so much. And today not only i pinned a copy of the lyrics to the wall, but i had tears in my eyes while i was listening to it.

Its so romantic and i wish it were true. Wouldnt it be amazing to have someone who lived by these lyrics?

To really love a woman, understand her –
you gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought, see every dream
And give her wings when she wants to fly
Then when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman

When you love a woman,
Tell her that she’s really wanted
When you love a woman, tell her that she’s the one
'Cause she needs somebody to tell her
That it’s gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really
Really really ever loved a woman?

To really love a woman
Let her hold you,
'Til you know how she needs to be touched
You’ve gotta breathe her, really taste her
'Til you can feel her in your blood
And when you see your unborn children in her eyes
You know you really love a woman

When you love a woman,
Tell her that she’s really wanted
When you love a woman, tell her that she’s the one
She needs somebody to tell her
That you’ll always be together
So tell me have you ever really,
Really really ever loved a woman?

You got to give her some faith, hold her tight
A little tenderness, gotta treat her right
She will be there for you, takin’ good care of you
You really gotta love your woman…

Then when you find yourself lyin’ helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman

When you love a woman, tell her
That she’s really wanted
When you love a woman tell her that she’s the one
She needs somebody to tell her
That it’s gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really,
Really really ever loved a woman?

Just tell me have you ever really,
Really, really, ever loved a woman?
Just tell me have you ever really,
Really, really, ever loved a woman?
