One day, when I was about 14 years old, I bent over to pick up the dogs bowl and I felt my back suddenly do this spasm thing and when I went to stand up I couldn't. I had to walk back to the house bent over as if I was mowing the lawn. Without a lawn mower. Although I probably wished I had a lawn mower to lean on. And then I lay on the lounge for a few days until it recovered.
And ever since then I've had a dodgy back and a couple of times a year it does the total seize up thing. And I can feel it this morning, getting ready to go. Right along the base, all across the big plate bits above your bum. So I'm walking around very slowly today because when it goes, its a real bastard. I get sort of bent over but with my left hip much higher than the right. I had to borrow a walking stick last time it happened. Sitting is really bad for it so you have to either be laying down or moving.
It happend the day before my wedding. The morning of the wedding I was at the doctors getting painkillers to get through the day. And the honeymoon was funny. I spent most of if laying in the front seat of the car driving to and from the nearest chiropractor. Once it happened at the supermarket and I didn't think I could make it back to the car. I almost rang Daz to tell him he'd have to come and help me walk 20 metres.
And its so annoying because it totally puts you out of action. Can't really do anything. And you don't get much warning that its about to happen, and nothing in particular seems to set it off. But I found something called Movalis in the pantry so I took one of them. I seem to remember Kimba getting them for a back problem.
Might go check out what movies are on tv today.
