You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.

Tuesday
Woke up with Severe Back pain, I couldn't get up or walk
Tried normal medication with no effect
Ended up going for a little trip in an Ambulance, and and afternoon in Hospital
I managed to walk at 4pm.
Got some good drugs, so hopefully it will get better soon :(
No gym for a little while I guess :(

Hey Chris,

Sorry to hear about your back troubles. It must have been pretty scary waking up like that, unable to move.

Get well soon!

Thanks Sam,
Yeah it wasn't a particularly nice day...
Back is still pretty stuffed :(
I've stopped taking the Hillybilly Heroin, as I hated the way it made me feel.
Great for the back, but living in a fog and not eating wasn't fun.
Got tattooed on Saturday, so no gym whilst that heals...
So yeah, just perfect, no gym for 2 weeks in the run up to Christmas, then I'll be away visiting family, the gym there is closed over Christmas....

Sorry to hear about the back problems as well. I may have missed something in your log in the past, but do you know what caused the injury and have you been diagnosed with any particular disc issues? Just curious if this was new or an ongoing thing, but either way, hope you feel better before too long!

Hey VE, To be honest I really don't know what cause the injury, I just woke up and couldn't walk.
I think it might have been bending over to pick up a towel! I think also, a heavy deadlift session could have played a part, but to be honest I don't really know, as there was no, snap type moments or anything.
I had it checked out and there is no disc or nerve issues, it's all muscular, which is good to know. Physio etc is helping.
