Reappearing...

Hmm, I did not mean to vanish for so long. After my last post, in which I was very angry about some disorganized faculty putting me in a position to work through the holiday weekend, I discovered that bad temper brings its own punishments, or something. In short, on the Victoria Day Monday I was doing nothing in particular when I felt a tearing sensation in my lower back and lo: herniated disc!

So I was off for the rest of the week. mostly lying face-down on my bed, or the couch, or a blanket on the floor. I couldn't stay still for long so I kept moving from place to place, and Vlad the cat faithfully trundled after me for as long as I seemed to be in distress. That was May 19th, I've been working from home part-time and mostly lying on the floor when I'm there, but I've got some good anti-inflammatory drugs, a physio appointment for later this week, and a consult with the doctor on Friday regarding the results of my x-ray. And I'm feeling a lot better.

It probably wasn't bad temper that caused this, but let it be a lesson to me that there are worse things than working on a holiday weekend.

Ouch! Painful backs are really painful. I've never done anything serious to my back, but on the occasions I have done something, it has made me very miserable. I hope it heals swiftly.
