I totally jacked my back up this past weekend. I don't know how or when exactly it happened besides that it had to of occured on Saturday while moving furniture. Sunday I began to feel it. Not too bad. But than on Monday I was jacked. It is now Wednesday and I am now on my second day off of work. Dr. McDougal who is an awesome dude said that it is a good thing that my injury did not occur at a particular moment while moving furniture because that would be a great indicator that I could have popped a disc or something...not good. So because my back is jacked up after the fact it more than likely is a series of pulled muscles in the lumbar region extending down my left buttocks and down my left leg.....THE SCIATIC NERVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am now on anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers. I am uncertain as to what I will be able to do at work if I go back this week. I deliver dry-wall, steel and packages of mixed compounds of what we call "mud" which varies in weight of 35 to 50 lbs. a piece. My job is physically demanding and my back is jacked. It's not a good position to be in. We'll see what happens here. The Doc told me it normally takes about 7 to 10 days for the back to heal. If it doesn't than I may have a bigger problem on my hands. Why am I writing about this? Because I am bored.
Recently I have been thinking about my blog. Why do I have it? I do not utilize it. I like the medium. But it is not one that I use on a frequent basis. Having time to blog is rare. And honestly I would rather have a community blog. One with other fellow communitarians in my local area where we can share and discuss subjects that are oriented towards our own community. Perhaps I will initiate this very soon. I will still keep this blog I think. But it will be something which I will utilize sparingly.

Love to all my Sciatic-communicants!!
