Sore Back

My back has been really sore this week. It’s been sore off and on over the last year probably. I think it has something to do with my mattress and I’ve been meaning to buy a new one.

It could also have to do with the fact that I haven’t really exercised in a year so the muscles are probably not as strong as they used to be.

I also find it hurts more after doing a lot of rearranging at the store I work at.

I wish I knew if buying a new mattress would help the problem because that’s a lot of money to spend if it doesn’t help.

Still Sick

I used my first sick day from work in probably more than 5 years. I have been trying to take medicine that has worked in the past but I can’t swallow the pill. I’ve always had trouble taking pills. The Buckley pills that I usually take are big gel capsules and I just can’t get them to go down.

In the morning I bought some other pills that are easy to swallow but they did nothing for my cold. I decided instead of being miserable at work that I should stay home to rest and hopefully get better.

One thing I don’t do is nap. But this afternoon I slept from 12 until 330! I’m always worried that napping will make it difficult to sleep that night but I’m feeling pretty tired, so I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.
