Back Pain Makes It Hard To Be Alive

with 3 comments


Whether is was dorsalgia or lumbago, it sucked. I could barely move, and if I somehow did barely move…shrieking pain throughout my whole body. Fun times for all. Not shown in the above drawing, of course, is the actual amount of cursing I did at every twitch and twist. Sailors would’ve blushed.

But no worries. The pain subsided after two or three days, and luckily most of those were spent comfortably in my apartment where I could cuss and moan to my heart’s content.

I hope this isn’t what it’s like to be old. That’s going to suck. Any old farts wanna confirm this, hmm?

She drifts off to sleep
And in her dreams
She lives in California
In a mansion by the sea
Yeah, that’s who she could be

  2. Aww, I have constant back pain, but it only happens when I fold things or bend over oddly. Pinched nerves and all that fun stuff–bleh.

    I’m glad it subsided that was horrible, you were in soooo much pain 😦 Well, here’s hoping it doesn’t happen again. Nom!
