Not fun, not fun at all.
A few days ago I started feeling a dull pain on the right side of my back. The next day it was stronger and the next day it was unbearable. I eventually went to the Dr and was given a prescription for some muscle relaxant that barely help. It just dulls the pain and makes me want to sleep.
Another surprising side effect is that lately I haven’t been thinking about sex. Not kinky sex, not vanilla sex, not anything.
As someone who’s familiar with my libido said: “Wow. You’re actually not horny right now? And it only took near-crippling back pain and drugs to do it!”. I’m lucky that she can speak from first hand experience.
My brain is bored right now. The parts of it usually dedicated to thinking about sex is just sitting there twiddling its thumbs, waiting.
I’ve tried devoting that part of my brain to something else but it’s bored by anything but sex.
Three days of muscle relaxants should do the trick shouldn’t it? Shouldn’t be hurting still.
These pills really don’t help the pain as much as they help me sleep through it. I slept twelve hours last night. Twelve!
What makes it worse is that this is standing in the way of me having a good time. It’s standing in the way of me having actual sex.
If only I could figure out what to do with my brain.
