It Happened Again!!!

5-Oct-2021 • San Francisco, California United States

Talk about unexpected!  Just as I was getting ready for work this morning, I bent to throw some leftover food into the garbage bin after having breakfast and voila!, I hurt my lower back.  I had the same lower back pain 20 years ago.  Back then, the doctor prescribed Vicadin, a very strong drug, that immediately got rid of any hurt. This time though, I was prescribed a muscle relaxant and an over the counter pain killer.  I hope they work.  The pain is too much.  I am stooped and it is hard for me to stand up straight.  I had to call in sick as well and for three days at that.  The doctor in fact told me to take the whole week off.   I am just so happy that I had prepared my sub plans a week ago.   I do want to return to work soon and save my sick days.  I just hate getting sick!!!
