    Damn me and my spine!

    A while ago I randomly mentioned what I thought was a pulled muscle in my back.

    Well, after collapsing into the worst pain I have ever experienced - to the point of lying on the floor and bellowing like a bull - EMS hauled me away.

    10 hours & 2 CAT scans later, it turns out I somehow managed to fracture one of the little wing-like doohickeys on a vertebrae. I'm home now, and should survive.

    I hurts beyond all belief. The painkillers are only minimally effective.

    Send me your strength, or, failing that, some Oxy.

    Or pray that I don't have to cough again.

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Oh dear! I'm so sorry....that sounds extremely terribly awful. I hope the drugs kick in soon :/. And of course good throughts (thoughts even) for a swift and uncomplicated recovery.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Ugh, that is pretty damn rough. Here's hoping the drugs kick in quickly, the fracture heals rapidly, and the neighbors don't call the police thinking you've got an enraged animal in your house due to your bellowing.

    I feel you B. De. I once "Bruised" a rib,and even with pain pills it hurt like crazy. Rest and stuff,cause if I remember right(on pain pills it was fuzzy) time is the real healer.

    Thanks!

    I'm off to enjoy the intense agony of taking a poop.

    That noise you hear isn't the end of the inverse, it's just me squeezing...

    Ooh, I'm sorry to hear this. Back pain is the worst. I get really bad muscle spasms that make it difficult to breathe sometimes, all due to herniating and collapsing lumbar (and cervical) discs. I had surgery, but it lasts only so long. So, I feel ya. You might need a muscle relaxant like Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) or Soma (carisoprodol) also. I loves me my carisoprodol and hydrocodone (Percoset).

    One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small,
    And the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all.
    Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall...


    The nerves are probably misfiring and causing the muscles to spaz. My best wishes to you.

    Do not mention that song around your Doc,some of them would cut you off...cause you know.....Drugs and stuff. My friend who was on major pain pills,once joked about younger days doing stuff,and his doc almost cut him off...He was 68 and the pain pills were the only way he could function...sometimes stupid doctors...
