Distracted By Sciatica

Thank you to everyone who recommended chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage, etc. I ended up finding a good guy who's actually in network with my health insurance--an unexpected bonus. My doctor is confident that we can get the sciatica to clear up in a matter of weeks, but meanwhile, I have stretching exercises to do, and appointments to keep, and various little comfort measures to use. Sleeping is hard work, and getting through the day requires a simplified definition of what counts as getting through.

The most annoying thing is that I won't be going to the George's Friends retreat down at Ramblewood this weekend. (In memory of a friend who organized big festivals, we thought we'd have a little festival at a place he loved.) I really wanted to go, since I couldn't make it to the memorial service at FSG, and I was looking forward to hanging out in the woods with various people who'll be there. I had particular plans to catch up with jasminewind and shades_of_nyx--ladies, I'll call you to figure out other plans. I've got the sciatica regimen well enough in hand that I've urged Dan to go to Ramblewood without me, but I'm not up to three days in a rustic setting right now.
