Back Issues

Hey gang, I managed to hose my back somehow. At the moment I am functional, but once I'm home from work I can't sit at my desk too long because apparently some idiot installed a freaking knife in the back of my chair that jabs me in my mid-back any time I'm parked in it.

So anyway, the upshot is that I'm trying to get my back in a less painful situation. I'm giving it another week to see if the pain changes (it's already gone through a few mutations), and if it's the same or worse I'll be hauling myself in to see my doctor. Fortunately I'm having some luck with aspirin and positioning for the pain aspect.

Speaking of positioning, sitting here typing doesn't work for me for long. I'll keep y'all updated, but it'll be brief until someone pulls the sawzall out of my spine.

Bloging from the hot tub sounds like your best option.

Thanks everyone. The plus side today is we've been so slammed at the office that I haven't had a chance to think about my back much. Being busy is a good thing, plus it's a positive that I'm not in enough pain that I can't be distracted.

On the minus side, I'm having a break in the "busy" at the moment, and OUCH!! Bleah. Oh well, I can have more aspirin now. Better go grab the bottle...
