When I see commercials on television talking about chronic back pain, I would usually say to myself that I am lucky not to have that. After tweaking my back last week, I have a whole new appreciation for pain killers. Not being able to sit comfortably or lay down comfortably for the last few days has really been a pain (no pun intended). The good thing is that I see the light at the end of the tunnel I think. My back pain is slowly disappearing. I haven’t taken a Ibuprofen yet today, and I am able to sit comfortably in my chair as well. With any luck, by Saturday I should be totally better so long as I rest it.
I am missing ice hockey on Thursday this week, so this small injury is not without its costs. My focus is on getting better, and doing some reffing on Saturday.
