I got one of those back-muscle spasm thingies last week. I had commitments at the weekend and since it wasn't so bad that I couldn't move, I managed to put off going to the doctor until Monday. Along with the reassuring (if somewhat disheartening) comment that this was 'To be expected at your age,' he prescribed some wonderful pills which mean I can now walk without getting stabbing pains in my spine or looking like an extra from a Planet of the Apes movie. 

The downside is they make me so darn drowsy. I've just about managed to keep on top of things so far this week, but I know I'll be half asleep for most of the day, so I apologize in advance if any comments I make online make even less sense than normal.

 

When did I get so old?

I think it was in 2007. March 19th to be exact.

What was so shocking about your 82nd birthday? :)

I'm just getting over a back spasm, so my sympathies are heartfelt. Hope you feel better soon, but Lord! those drugs are the good stuff.

I got old a long time ago. It doesn't get any better. Sadly.

My father always tells me, "getting old isn't for wimps." The older I get, the more I understand.

One of my favourite quotes is from Bette Davis : "Old age is no place for sissies." She's right.

Old age is no place for sissies

That's why I've stayed at 29 for so long :)

Have you tried getting a massage and going to the chiropractor?

OH, and I'm sorry your hurting. That sucks. I have frequent back trouble.

You, yourself didn't get old, you're body just couldn't keep up with your young guy attitude.

Nice tushi, BTW.

An extra what? Were you one of the trees?

I can't think straight at the moment, so [Insert series of hilarious and witty tree related puns here] :)

Thanks, Kam. I'm fine when I take the pills, just incredibly tired all the time :)

I hope you quickly recover! Though, walking like an extra from Planet of the Apes might make for an interesting experience in public. Minus the pain, of course.

It's fun alright, but the sidewalk plays havoc with my knuckles :(

Tsk tsk. You must use thickly-padded gloves! Or strap pillows to your hands.
