No sleep tonight

I think I will have to take tomorrow off. I've taken vicodin, but even with that my back is still killing me and I can't sleep. This is gonna fuck things up. It hurts to stand. It hurts to sit. Even laying in bed like I am now is painful. I wish I knew what was wrong besides getting older. It just started hurting when I was wiping down my counters last night. I suspect that if I could actually get to sleep, something would pop back into place and I'll be fine when I wake up. Muscle. Spine. Psychosomatic. Whatever. Just need to sleep so my back relaxes. No dice so far though. Cause it hurts too much.


Back spasms

Dr. Mulia says I am having back spams. Ibuprofen and a muscle relaxer if I want it. Turned the latter down. Now I am under doctor's orders to work out to strengthen my back starting next week.

Also, I have my annual physical scheduled for 2 weeks hence. Last one was August-ish 2003. Had to sign all the waivers saying I understand I am getting an AIDs test and I could die or something equally bad. Not really sure, as I didn't read the damn thing.
