So, what do people at work and/or school do to help you when they know you have a bad back? How about your family and friends?
I work at a convenience store and my boss and coworkers are awesome. I am not scheduled on stock days, as I cannot lift heavy boxes, they don't make me lift ice to put into the ice machine. They offer to bend down for me if I drop something in front of them. When I had my surgeries my boss let me have as much time off as I needed and let me "ease back in" slowly with short work hours. They also gave me get well cards and flowers. I am very fortunate, as some bosses and coworkers suck.
As for friends and family, I am always the one that gets the comfiest chair, LOL and they are so supportive of me. I really appreciate them.
I just feel real lucky and I hope all you have similar experiences with people!
