My poor back

I've got PMS and I've hurt myself and it's my own fault.

I got irate at a shepherd's hook and allowed the PMS rage to overcome myself to the point of craziness.

The hook was bent at the ground end and had the audacity to keep going into the ground crooked. I tried to straightened it out. I don't have a clue what made me think that I could easily straighten a bent steel rod. I stomped on it, twisted it, screamed obscenities at it, kicked it and basically scared the shit out of my mother doing this. I think she thought I had lost my freakin' mind.

She had asked me to move a shepherd's hook from the back yard to the front so she could hang some hummingbird feeders up. Easier said than done, I guess. I stomped on the metal bar so hard I bruised the arch of my foot and now have a limp. Nice. I swing the stupid thing so hard at the ground I think I pulled some muscles in my stomach. My entire stomach and lower back feel like I've done sit-ups. My upper arms feel sore and bruised.

What the hell did I do? At least the hook looks pretty now.

Oh, man! I am with you. I have PMS, too, but have not moved any shepherd's hooks. I think I have only taken off family members' heads, poor people.

We all need the release of going psycho once in a while. Sorry you had to hurt yourself in the process. The question remains, did you feel mentally better afterward?
Ice, rest and sothing music, that is the cure.

UGH. Sounds painful. Try to do some gentle stretching and ICING!! It will help (trust me from one back injury to another).

Hot tub and a nice drink would make you feel better maybe. Hope you feel better soon!

Much better story then mine. I'm bitching because I hurt myself putting a pillow case on a pillow. But like you said, the hook looks pretty...and my elderly mother has a pillow case on her pillow.
