A Day Of Pain

Ouch !!!You may remember a couple of weeks ago, I was suffering from a nasty bout of back pain, well today it came back with a vengeance.

The alarm went off at 6:30 as usual, but when I tried to get out of bed it felt like someone was stabbing me in the back with a red hot poker. I literally crawled to the bathroom and simply couldn’t stand up straight.

To be honest, my back had been giving me jip since Sunday, but this was another level completely.

I emailed work to say that I wasn’t going to be coming in, not good in the final phase of a project launch, but I couldn’t see any way I would be able to make it.

I got myself back into bed and tried to stretch out and straighten my spine. I had rubbed on some modern horse liniment, and with the warmth of the bed it started to ease a little.

So by 8:30 I had creaked my way through the shower, got myself dressed and went straight to the doctors. ‘We can see you on Thursday afternoon’ they said, fat lot of good that was going to be, but I was up and so decided to get myself in to the office.

The day was pretty rough, lots of work still to be done, coupled with the sniggers each time I tried to get up out of my chair.

Anyway, suffice to say I’m still in the land of the living and with more liniment, a hot bath and lying flat most of the evening, my back feels a bit better. We shall see, come morning.

Still got my chanting done though, despite it all … Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
