Comments: Hopefully I’ll be starting physical therapy soon. Waiting to hear back with my first appointment date. I cry all the time, I’m in so much pain. I can’t do anything. Funnily enough, the computer bothers me less than almost everything else. Things that hurt the most: going to the bathroom (pulling down pants, wiping), washing my hair, brushing my hair, getting dressed, holding a book, etc. I can’t escape using my hands. Getting up kills my abdomen, but I can’t use my hands for much support. I don’t know how much more I can take. And the nurse JUST called me. Physical therapy starts this coming Monday. Hopefully I’ll also be in prenatal water aerobics every Tues. and Thurs. evening starting May 6.
