Unexpected Absence

Last Tuesday I was struck by sudden and severe back pain that persisted through the weekend. It was unbearable to sit at my computer for more than a few minutes at a time. Fortunately, I am much better today but it may be a few days before I resume regular posts.

Sounds painful. Hope you get to feeling better! I look forward to reading all your posts.

I am very glad to hear that you have improved. I wish you well.

One of the 20 most important books in my life is:

Pete Egosccue, Pain Free

At one point I was so crippled with pain and disability that I was shopping (online) for a wheelchair. Now I walk about six miles per day, pain free.

Thanks Sean and Burgess. I am much better today.

Thanks for the book tip Burgess.

Here’s hoping that pain goes away quickly and I also hope that all the computer work is not a contributing factor.

Glad to hear from the last coment that you are improving.

Brian Phillips said...

Thanks Steve,

I am starting to think that it might have been caused by a minor auto accident I was in. Ten days passed before I had any problems, so I'm not sure. Regardless, I am much, much better.

Oh no! I'm very sorry to hear that you've been afflicted with back pain, Brian. I was so looking forward to a whole pile of posts to read too. Oh well - GET BETTER SOON.

What are you doing for this? Are you looking into an ergonomic chair for your desk? Or getting an assessment to ensure your set-up is more ergonomically sound?

I hope you're back to 100% soon. I look forward to your resumption of regular posting when you feel up to it.

Thanks Amai,

Each day is bringing improvement. I lost a lot of time and I'm scrambling to catch up, but regular posting should resume next week.
