Most of my real-life/online friends know that I've been dealing with a crazy back situation for the past two weeks which has involved a heating pad, a bucket of IcyHot, physical therapy, and lots and lots of drugs. The writing has suffered, as has email communication, housecleaning, reading, blogging, and existing. HOWEVER, I am hopefully on the mend. I am not flat on my back today; I am slightly inclined! Huzzah!
As a peace offering, I thought I would offer you a pictorial essay (featuring my feline companions Milo and Oz) about what can go wrong when you ignore things that you think will get better if you just keep going (like pain).
Enjoy, and I hope to be back among those who can sit upright real soon.
