First Ally got sick. Then Steve got sick. I threw my back out. Then I got sick. Then I threw my back out again.
My lower back this time, but at least the muscles aren't spastic and agonizing. No, this is a kinder, gentler back injury that merely makes me walk around hunched over like an old man. I'm hoping that a day of rest (but not *too* much rest, as that causes the muscles to stiffen up) will suffice and let me stand up straight again.
January, I've had enough of you. You can go now. And somebody please tell me that 2012 isn't The Year of the Chiropractor.
