Worse, Not Better

I woke up a couple of times before getting up for the day — once in the wee hours because, having gone to bed early for me, I felt rested enough to read for a half hour or so, and again later in the morning because of a phone call — and both times I thought that, despite the occasional twinge, my back seemed to be feeling better.

Boy, was I wrong!

As I was getting some breakfast fixings out of the fridge, every muscle in my back contracted sharply. The pain was worse than ever! You could probably hear me a couple of blocks away!

I've spent the hours since then lying on the couch, wincing whenever a deep breath or slight movement sets off more spasms, and wondering how the hell I'm going to be able to sing tonight. I've called my massage therapist to see if she'll do a short-notice housecall, but I'm not holding out any hope. :(

Poor thing!

I hope you get some relief soon!

I'd laugh at the sitcom shenanagins of your back going out except that my own back decided to call a strike over the summer once too and I found out exactly how much pain is involved. Now... thrown backs aren't quite as funny as they used to be.

Get better soon!

I used to have similar problems ... which became arthritis of the back. You may have inherited some of my disabilities.
