I AM A GREAT CATCH, Y’ALL!
Once a year or so, I will throw my back out performing strenuous tasks like “getting out of the car” or “bending over”. This leaves me walking like a little old lady for a solid week or so. I assume the posture of a banana but instead of bending forward, my back arches backwards and I walk around like I just pooped my pants.
It’s totally HOTT, I swear!
Earlier this year I went through physical therapy for the first time, so I know what I should be doing to avoid throwing it out yet again. I just…haven’t…been doing it?
All this back story is necessary in order to say I’m fairly certain I’m about to throw it out again SITTING IN MY CHAIR AT WORK. I can feel parts of my lower back tightening up and getting that tingly, slightly hurty, slightly tickly sensation as if my body is saying “SHE’S NOT DOING ANYTHING YET. WAIT FOR IT…WAIT FOR IT…” So I’m sitting extremely still this morning. But I don’t think I’m going to be able to avoid it.
I want a cane with a sparkly skull grip. Also, I would like to be carried everywhere for the next few days, cuddled, snuggled, fed fresh fruit and allowed to watch back episodes of Dr. Who in bed.
