The last couple of days have not been fun.
Apparently I pulled some sort of muscle in my back. This is especially comical when you consider that really the only “exercise” that I get is an hour of walking the dog each night. The rest of my time, including leading up to having said problems this go around, is typically spent sitting in a computer chair, so the HOW doesn’t really make much sense to me at all!
Though actually this is the second time that it’s ever happened to me – the first was maybe five years ago and got gradually worse throughout the day until I wasn’t comfortable until I was bent forward in my chair with my nose almost touching the keyboard … not really easy to type at that point!
The “solution” ended up being a couple of days off and some anti-inflammatory drugs from the doctor. This time I lucked out because the wife had some from her own back problems, so I was able to save a trip and a co-pay, but it has basically meant most of my time the last couple of days has either been spent a) laying on the couch; or b) laying in bed. Neither has really been very productive for me, though I did have a chance to get caught up on some of the TV shows that apparently I had saved on the DVR.
So in summary…
