Upon waking this morning my lower back was in such pain it had radiated out into my legs. I fumbled for some relief and thought I had found it in a bottle of Advil. I popped three beautiful blue liquid gels and hobbled to the bathroom to take a shower.
It wasn’t long before I was doubled over in pain. I forgot that I can’t take ibuprofen or naproxen anymore because it makes my stomach bleed. The horror of it all.
I schlepped to work regardless and have been sitting here alternating between clutching my belly and clutching my back. Then there are my legs which still hurt. It’s comedic on one level, on another it’s just plain distressing.
