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?
