Yesterday, I bent down to look for something. When I came back up, I felt a twinge in the left side of my far lower back (just above my buttocks). I figured it would go away in a few minutes, but it didn’t. It’s still with me. Didn’t get much sleep last night, because it was really hard to find a comfortable sleeping position. Ow.
I’m facing my own mortality over this, because this is the first time I’ve thrown my back out in normal use- not doing something like lifting something the wrong way, or lifting something that’s too heavy, just bending down and standing back up like I do several times a day (today, the back pain is making me notice just how many things involve doing that). I’m getting older and falling apart
I had to miss a Fourth of July barbecue with one of Mr. Neville’s colleagues so I could stay home and sit or lie on the heating pad. I’m still tethered to the heating pad today, and feeling sorry for myself.
