Back pain sucks

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.
