You'd think that being on a modified bed rest that I would start to feel better and my back would hurt less. But in all reality, that is far from the truth. Just because I've been switched to a modified bed rest, my wardens still make me spend most of the day with my bum planted on the couch. I do get out and walk to the mailbox, those 200 steps are my lifesaver! I can get my own meals and love getting up and moving around more. But since I've done nothing but sit for the past 4 weeks, the walking that I do still makes my back hurt. Plus, I'm too exhausted to do much. :(
The worst of it is when you rest all day, you can't sleep at night. Then you go to bed late and begin a vicious cycle, which I'm currently caught in. I cannot take a nap during the day, fearing I won't sleep at night. But then, I never fall asleep before 1am anyway.
