Went under completely today 😦
Although I had to take some ibuprofen last night to be able to sleep, I didn’t want to load my body unnecessarily with NSAIDs, and decided to be a hero and go drug-free for the first time. Ugh, needless to say, I feel terrible and am barely able to move out of bed.
I did manage to pick myself up long enough to do some shoulder rehab exercises and upper body pawanmuktasana. I must admit that the slight discomfort caused by these exercises was enough to take my mind off my aching tummy and lower back for a while, but they also left me exhausted. It’s not as if I’d gone running, but my energy reserves seem non-existent.
I’ll need to research and experiment on this. I hate having to rely on drugs to feel well enough to simply function, even if it’s only for 2-3 days a month.
