Apparently, through the simple expedient of leaning over to use a cardboard box at Knee Level as a desk on which to sign a USPS delivery slip, I have managed to pull a muscle or do something equally unpleasant in my lower back, and now it hurts quite a bit.

Owie.

Oh hon! Did I jinx you?? I know how it feels you poor dear!

OK, I'm all set now that I have someone to blame! (And after I refrained from makingthe "Look! It's got a crack right up the middle!" joke, too!)

Seriously, hon, thanks for being concerned. It's not too bad while I sit here at my desk, but standing up quickly shows me that there's a problem of some sort. I walk like a little old guy, hunched over and pressing the back of my hand to my lower back.

At least I should prove entertaining!

well it's only on one side, but I can't stand, sit walk or lay down without pain... *sigh* When I do have to walk I wince and cry.

We can shuffle and whimper side by side, then!

OUCH! That smarts.
A few days ago I woke up with a terrible ache in my left hip joint, so I've been limping around a bit, too.
Take it easy.

Not yet. I'll see what my personal nursing staff -- er, that is, my wife -- has to say about it first.

That's like the wheat-thing Ron used in oncelikeshari's Perspective isn't it?

Thanks for the hug. How are you feeling?

kind of like that. i forgot all about that...you are really a fan!boy!

I usually make them with a long sock and place rice in it...and then nuke it for a little.

I'm still sick...but doing better. i still have no voice.

How is Mandy doing?

It's probably my favorite "Solstice Muse" story, so loving and touching and life-affirming.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Or, I guess, not to hear that!

How is Mandy doing?

Happy, but not healing as fast as I'd like. She keeps getting it wet! But it doesn't seem to be bothering her, and at least, with the Cone Collar on, she's not licking it. (And when you look at her face in the cone, its like a bowl of cute!

Ouch!

This UPS slip, was it work related or was it more important than that? If it was work be sure to let them know just how bad it hurts and how much sacrifice (cough) it’s taken for you to hobble in.

I know a lot about back pain from the fractured vertebra I got as a present for myself in high school. It’s one of those gifts that keep on giving. (I could tell you a lot about extreme lower back pain at work, butt I don’t think I’ll go there right now…)

Hope you’re feeling better. And take it easy fer kripes sake!

Re: Ouch!

Yes, it was work related...

But I'm starting to think my "Formerly Property of RCN" chair is a major culprit here, which would suck, because this chair is my long-time buddy and pal.

And take it easy fer kripes sake!

That's like telling Jeff to cheer the hell up!

Ow!

I used to get back problems a lot till I started doing stretches and excersizing. Sitting at a desk all day isn't good.

It happens to the best of us. A girlfriend cracked a rib taking her laundry out of her washing machine!

I'm much better now. (Still a bit achy, but not bad at all.)

Thanks for the sympathy, though, and teh excellent advice that I'm way too lazy to follow!

Oooooh! And thanks for the massage, too!
