There Was An Old Lady...

Funny Cry for Help Ecard: I threw my back out sucking my belly in.
I am at that age.

The age where body parts hurt for no reason.  And they hurt so bad that I can barely move.

Last Monday I woke up with back spasms.  I wish I could say that I had just climbed Mt Everest or beaten the Guiness World Record for Wii Just Dance 2.  Heck, it would have been nice to just say that I had gardened all day or lifted one of my kids and hurt it.  But I didn't do any of those things.  I just woke up with a random back injury.

I toughed it out at work on Monday even though I couldn't really work because I couldn't concentrate on anything besides how much my back was hurting.  The spasms would wrap around from my back to my stomach.  It felt like I was in labor.  Three days of back labor and no cute little baby to blame my stretch marks and saggy boobs on.

Gradually I got better and by Saturday I was feeling pretty good again.  I made my weekly trip to Costco where I foolishly lifted a case of water into my cart.

Big mistake.

I wonder how much Advil it takes before you get permanent liver damage...?

Back spasms? That sounds ridiculous! You know who to blame. M.L.

I have knee pain of unknown origin.

And I once threw my back out sneezing. Getting old is dumb.

Uh yah. a couple of weeks ago I WOKE UP WITH a knee injury...swollen and everything. And it still hurts. SO I injured my knee in my sleep apparently. I'm gonna hope at least I was running a marathon in my dreams!
