That is excellent GG

Ours is a Sealy Posturepedic Oasis, it has a nice soft top, but still firm....we couldnt have gone the next bed up in the range and had the even softer cushion top but we didnt want it "that" soft

Yes, they say they can take up to 30 days or more for your body to adjust to the feel of the bed

The cool change came through overnight and it is lovely this morning

I am going to be doing a bit of gardening this morning...there are a lot of leaves on trees and shrubs that got burnt when we had that 46c day, so I want to cut all of those leaves off as they look terrible!

By the time I made it the twenty or so miles home I could neither sit nor stand without significant excruciating pain. I took some naproxen, applied an ice pack for about an hour and then went to bed. Lying down was about 25% better than sitting or standing. Still lots of pain this morning (like muscle spasms). Had to go to work, because I was covering someone else who is out with Norovirus. Once at work we found someone to "cover" me (it was apparent that I would be of no use) and I headed back to the chiropractor. Turns out my "hip flexors" were all out of whack (from the neck adjustment last night) this has caused multiple muscle spasms and sciatic pain.
I probably should have posted this in "venting". But the thread title is "what are you doing"? And what I am doing is whining......and resting ;)
Are you guys okay now? Gee wilikers, will you ladies please take care of yourselves.

(((Hugs))) and healing vibes going out to both of you.

I got back from getting a new smart phone and buying a few groceries. I picked up a bunch of root veggies to add to the pork stew that I defrosted. I didn't put nearly enough vegis in when I made it.

I hear ya. It seems every thread I open someone is feeling ill
We need a "What Ails Ya" forum

I haven't done much of anything today. Made a formal complaint againt my local post office, that's about it. I've got a case # and everything
And I'm about to email someone and ask them if they got a purchase I made from them into UPS today, but I feel I won't want to read the reply. If they haven't sent me a tracking # by now...

I just had a go around with the USPS. My mail order pharmacy shipped me some meds on 1/2 and the tracking info indicated it was delivered on 1/5. I never got it. So I called the USPS and they surmised they put it into the wrong mailbox. They're hoping it will get turned in. They're not 'desirable' drugs - unless the thief has high blood pressure.

Then I called the mail order Rx company and they offered to do an early refill for which I will be charged my copay. If the lost drugs haven't turned up in three months, they will give me a free refill.

I am going away for two weeks in two weeks so I'm just trying to ensure I have what I need.
