Doing Better...Some of Us!
So that's Bandit's story. Me on the other hand...
On Tuesday I pulled my back out by, of all things, sitting on the bar stool at our kitchen counter. I lifted my butt in just the wrong spot. It didn't hurt too much when it happened, just a little uncomfortable. But as the day progressed it got worse and as the days go on I'm acting more like a 78 year old cripple. Yesterday while grocery shopping I placed a jar of salsa in the carriage and ZING - a sharp pain right up my back. It knocked the wind out of me. I grabbed on to the carriage and yelled out "Son of a bitch!" A clerk walking by reached out to me, "are you alright?" Chris answered for me: "It's just his back. He won't go to the doctor."
Tomorrow, if it's not much better, I'm calling my chiropractor. Maybe he can crack it back together. What is my primary care going to do? He'll just tell me to rest, take Advil and ice it - all of which I have been doing. Well...except for the resting part.
