Lower Back Pain

On Wednesday, I went back to work. Shortly after I got to work, I bent over to fix something and before I knew it my lower back muscles began to spasm. I could feel the muscles twitching as the pain worsened. It got increasingly difficult to sit or stand. After lunch, my boss sent me home. I had a terrible time getting in my vehicle. I took some muscle relaxers and laid on a heating pad, but it didn’t seem to help a lot. I was in agony each time I tried to move. I finally fell asleep. When I woke yesterday morning, I couldn’t get out of bed without a lot of pain, so I had to call in sick. I’d planned to see my doctor but when I woke up again the pain had lessened so I didn’t call. I did pretty good most of the day. I tried mainly just to rest. Last night, the pain seemed to get worse again, so I just went to bed early. I’m hoping it will be better this morning.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
