I don’t know what I did to wrench my back, but whatever I did to it, it’s still pretty mad at me.

I crawled into bed early last night, around eight-thirty, because my back felt best when I was lying flat on it. Sitting up, even in the recliner, was not making it feel better at all. Then when I got out of the recliner I’d have to do a couple deep-knee bends, touch my toes & etc just to restore enough flexibility to my frame to allow me to walk across the room.

Bending over isn’t really the problem. Well, it’s a problem, but it’s always been a problem. I’m one of those people who hasn’t ever been able to touch his toes. I can reach about as far as my shins and that’s it. And even now, my back doesn’t have a problem with that. It’s when I start to bend at the waist that my lower back goes, Whoa! Not so fast there, buster! If I’m standing up straight or I’m bent over, I’m okay, but if my shoulders are just a little bit too far in front of my hips, Ouch!

Much better this morning. I can walk across the room without warming up for it, although I had some trouble putting on my pants.

Pass the Advil.
