I'm using this forum to moan and groan about my situation so that I can spare my wife the moaning and groaning. I know that many of you are worse off than I so forgive me.
I am lying on the floor with an ice pack under my back, posting with an iPod touch, and boy are my arms tired!
As I do every few years, I strained a muscle in my lower back 26 days ago. It's taking a long time to heal be cause I keep reinjuring it. For example I knocked something with my hand and automatically jumped to keep it from falling. Today I bent down and tilted my head to look for a beer and got that big twinge.
Mainly it's taking time to heal because I can't resist playing piano or sitting at the computer. I cannot sit comfortably in a chair.
Currently I take a long walk and do stretching and exercises such as pullups and pushups on one day and rest on the next but I'm getting very tired of that. I'm taking 4 days off from piano.
I have more to say and ask but typing on this tiny keyboard is tedious.
Moan groan blah blah. Thanks for listening.
