Note...

When people tell you to "lift with your knees," they're giving you good advice.

I'll be back to posting when I can sit up again (hopefully tomorrow)...

What happened to you? Can I do anything for you? Do you have beer? I sure hope you do, if not let me know, I'll be right over.



Take care.

O man. Been there many times. I know a very good massage therapist there. Her name is Lisa Schorr. Her business is called Pure Massage. You can find her # with google. Her office is in Tiftonia tho so might be a long drive if in pain. Take care.

Sandy, thanks for the offer. I do have plenty of beer. In fact, it's the beer that caused the problem -- I threw my back out as I was carrying a keg into the house. Unfortunately, I can't drink any of it, because I'm stuck on the floor and desperate to avoid any trips to the bathroom. :-/



Fletch, I'll keep the name. My father has already called to encourage me to seek preventative therapy once I'm back on my feet...

Oops...so sorry to hear this! Hopefully you'll be all better soon...and certainly in time to vote! :-) Just kidding on that last part. If TN has early voting, I'm sure you have already.

I am sorry to hear about the sports injury. My preventive advice is to stick to microbrews - biggest thing you have to lift with those is a growler.



Funny - my DBF just injured his back on Sunday trying to lift my TV (old fashioned type, not flat screen). First thing he said? "Lift with your KNEES, you idiot" (referring to himself of course). You must have the same horoscope or something.



Hope you are feeling better soon!

Thanks for the kind thoughts, everyone. It's a little better today, so I imagine I'll be seeing gradual improvement all week long.



Lucy, my hubby thinks that at least part of the cause of this is the sudden cold weather here, which may have our muscles stiffening up a bit in response. Between that, the general tension that's carrying me into Election Day and the boneheaded way I tried to lift that keg, it was a recipe for disaster...

Hi Alice,

Of course, I'd recommend you see an acupuncturist STAT. The sooner you go in after an injury like this the better your prognosis for a full recovery. Seriously, people wait to go to acupuncturists until they've tried everything else - but the wait makes full recovery less likely.



Just sayin', girlfriend. :)

Y'know, maybe you should give up beer. Beer kegs, I mean. Just stick to six-packs. Or get some of your own. That'll help.

alice said...

I'll give up carrying beer -- how's that?!? ;-D



Julie, I'm only just getting to the point where I could even consider the possibility of getting into the car (ow, ow, OW!), so I'll start looking into the options tomorrow...

"Ragin' kegger at Alice's, dude!"



At first, I thought you were kidding about the beer and that was funny. Then I realized you were serious and that was funnier.



Back pain, however, is not funny. Hope you continue to mend!
