Today is Monday. Saturday we had a community festival here in my town. It had booths, rides, the works..in other words a small fair or carnival. I took the kids at 1:00 in the afternoon. I was on my feet most of the time when we first got there. After a few hours, I really started feeling the pain. As soon as I would walk them to the ride they wanted to ride on, I would just drop and sit on the ground until the ride was over. I knew I was overdoing it, but I had promised the kids I would spend the day with them. Well to make a long story short, we stayed until about 10:00 pm. They had a fireworks show that I couldn't make the kids miss. When the fireworks were over, I was literally in tears hobbeling the 2 blocks back to the car. Two days later I am still not any better. My left calf feels like I did a triathalon and I literally have to do this goofy hop skip step to get around the house. I reek of Ben Gay. I have soaked in the tub so much I am wrinkled head to toe. I have taken my Flexeril, but it isnt touching the tightness. All I have for pain is an anti-inflammatory and that is doing me no good. On top of all of it, even though I thought I was in the shade and it was very cloudy out I have this weird rash like a sunburn and my skin feels as if its on fire. If anyone has any suggestions besides staying in bed, please let me know. This really hurts badly, but in a way to take the kids out like that all day and see their smiles made it worth it. kinda..
