Big Mistake

Pain, pain, pain! I would rate my pain level from 1 to 10 a sharp 8 ½. Maybe that’s not so bad.

Every Monday we get a truck delivery with the school food supply. My school kitchen is called a satellite kitchen where we cook and delivery for a total of six elementary schools therefore we get a lot of product.  I’ve helped from one of my cooks and she’s awesome. We both work pretty well and we helped each other with the lifting so no one gets hurt.

Yesterday I was in a hurry trying to finish, one of the ladies call in sick meaning adding more work to my schedule. So instead of doing the lifting together like we always do, I did a poor decision, I went to put away 12cs of Golden Apples by the time I reach the third case, I knew something went wrong and instead of stopping I kept putting them away. When I try to start to lift the bananas my hips was on fire. The pain was horrible. What a big mistake I’ve made and now I’m paying the consequences.

I’ve been taking ibuprofen and putting some icy-hot patch, however it’s not working.  If tomorrow I still in pain, I made go to see the chiropractor. Pain, pain, pain!

  1. I went to the chiropractor and the pain is tolerable, however its hard to go to bed. Tomorrow another visit to the chiropractor and hoping the pain would be gone soon. Thank you for your comments.


  2. My trick is one learned as an international rower some years ago. As soon as you feel a twinge take 600 mg ibuprofen. Repeat 4 hours later and again after the next 4. Then revert to 400 mg every 4 hours for at least 24 hours. It sounds like an OD but it actually works and since it was a Doctor who told me and many have told me it’s fine since, I stick with it. I hope you feel better soon – that sort of pain is harsh and barely tolerable 😦


  3. Relax...

    Sorry to hear that! Hope you are better by tomorrow. It might be that an NSAID might work better (Aleve). Let us know how you’re doing.
