Ever heard the expression ' her/his back's gone'.
Gone where? An excuse to get out of doing things? Pull a sicky, being nothing but a whimp?
Well my back went yesterday and the pain was horrific, so much so, that my husband took me to A&E.
All I could think of was we're filming in 10 days, this can't be happening, all the work that has gone into arranging everything, and I'm going to be in hospital.
As it happens, they didn't keep me in, they let me go, I could barely walk, sitting in the car to and from the hospital was a nightmare. My husband had to keep stopping so I could stand up, he had to help me out of the car to do this.
So I ended up lying on the couch yesterday afternoon dosed up with mega painkillers, I was out of it for approximately 24 hours.
Today I have to try and get on with things, being incapacitated is not on my agenda.
I have to keep an eye on the kickstarter fund, order costumes for the girls, make sure the actors are ready for the rehearsed reading and rehearsal on 12 October.
Apparently my back went into spasm, so my GP told me after I managed to hobble over there this morning. Strong painkillers and muscle relaxants are the way to go. So I can't drive.
