Post-Salabrasion Day 3

I'm not gunna lie....I'm in a helluva lot of pain right now. Day 1 was not so bad. It really only hurt when we had to clean & dress the wound. Day 2, pain was worse & I spent most of the day on pain meds,doing light cooking/cleaning, rearing of children etc.

Day 3: The area has a begun to heal and you can tell where there is still ink coming off but I am in horrendous pain. The husband woke me up this morning to make breakfast but when he got home a few hours later, he told me to dress the kids & get in bed. I'm not sure how long he was gone but I think he thought I might just lay down, watch TV. Nope. I knocked out for HOURS, only waking to turn from one side of the bed to the other. My sister-in-law told me she came in to check on me & even poked me to make sure I was alive. Haha. I really don't recall her doing that but I was OUT.

I've been up for several hours now & finally decided to take some pain medication & take the dressing off for a bit. It was really hurting but having the dressing off isn't helping. At the moment, it literally feels like it's on fire. When my husband was taking the dressing off, the peeling was horrible. Apparently, the dressing had begun to stick to the raw skin. My shoulders and upper back hurt even though I don't have any "wound" in that area. Even my bra shoulder straps are making my shoulders hurt. Everything is just swollen there.

I know this isn't my fitness blog but because I wont be able to workout for a bit (hopefully till I have been eating extra clean. Anyway..I'll update again on Day 6.
