Photos From My Chair: Chronic Back Pain and the Art of Patience


It took me almost an hour to get up from the floor. I had this bright idea that it would

ease my back if I slept on a hard surface. To a certain degree it helped but when it came time to get up, hah! I couldn't
Like a helpless bird with a broken wing
I just lay there waiting 
Waiting for the med to kick in
Waiting to not hurt so bad 
Waiting
Finally I got up
I parked myself on a chair
 I can't really move
I sit at the table
I type on the laptop
I photograph what's nearby
I wait

"Patience is not about waiting, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting."

Currently I'd say my attitude is along the lines of being a muckspout

oh gosh, CB...
So very sorry to hear this...bad backs are THE. WORST!
Hope your MD or DO gets your back straightened out QUICK. Ugh.

And you're right...you about can't do ANYTHING when they're messed up.

Prayers and wishes for a quick healing
