Hurt muh back

Post by Bruce » Mon May 27, 2019 11:08 am

Stupid bipedal design. Back injuries are practically unavoidable. :x

Bent over to start putting away dishes from the bottom rack and gaaaahh!

It's been about 10 years since I pulled a back muscle this badly. Everyone else in the house is asleep and I'm lying here on the couch, stuck here for who knows how long. Can't even lean forward enough to reach my coffee.

Shitty way to start the day. Not much I can do right now except talk to you assholes.

So, how are things?

I just took my morning dump...now I'm eating breakfast to load up for the next delivery.

Back injuries are the worst. The last time I really messed mine up was at a stupid "sports festival" at my kid's school. They had a tug of war and I participated. Didn't realize how bad I hurt until the following day when I could barely move.

It's not one of those typical back injury muscles either. It's one that runs horizontally across the left hip. If I move very carefully and slowly, other muscles around it can compensate, but damn this hurts. Shit. It's a beautiful day too. Was hoping to go out for a walk. That might be shot. Fuck.

Man, I feel for you. Had mine go out a few times. Best thing is to get your family to wait on you till you are better.
