Blogging for backache sufferers

I’m having my annual bout of backache agony but unlike other times, I can’t sit for longer than a few minutes in this computer chair. I owe quite a few email replies (coming soon!) and I’m keen to know what you’ve all been posting but bloghopping is going to have to wait a wee while – I’m off to have another hot bath.

    It could be worse – you could be sitting on a bedside table since all the chairs in the house are decidedly unsafe! My neck is killing me!

    Yes, there must a lot of it going around. I’d try a hot bath but I’m worried I’d not be able to get out again!

    Drugs. I recommend drugs. Lots of ’em. Yup, drugs will do the trick. Drugs.

    I went to an osteopath last week – bliss! I was a bit sore for a couple of days but my back is much freer as a result.

    Plus I have leftover Vicodin in the cabinet.

    Ooh, hope it eases off. I have a wonderful contraption that I got from Tchibo (unfortunately things are only available for a limited time from them), it’s basically a mini-electric blanket that fits round your back and neck, it is fantastic and if you can find one I recommend it.

    Two words: Nucca practitioner. I used to work for one, and he fixed a back injury i’d been limping along on for 14 years with the push of a finger. Nuccas can work instant, permanent and painless change in about 2 seconds. I’ll see if i can find one near you, and email you privately ins.

    Till then… hot and cold compresses and sleep on your back with your knees up. That’s an order, missy.

    Hi Daisy!

    I found your blog through my frinds blog “Fast Eddies Bullet”.

    I hope your back gets better soon! My mom use to have back problems too, so she stopped wearing good bras so her back wouldn’t hurt anymore, then her boobies got longer and longer until it made her look preganet, but she got a crane job last week at the hospital to pull them back up and her boobies stopped hurting now so I don’t have to change my baby sister anymore, because she stinks!

    I hope you have a nice weekend, Daisy, and get well soon!

    Not so good Coco.

    I have no medical advice so I will attempt to cure you with the power of my mind.

    If you get better in the next 30 minutes, I take the credit.

    BTW, great work by Rockchild above – most random comment ever. Sharing too much perhaps?

    Rockchild – I’m pretty sure wearing a good bra helps backache! Hope your mum recovers soon.

    Wearing a good bra’s not helped me.

    BTW is it me or is there more than a little Quickos in Rockchild?

    Hope you feel better soon! The weather here has been messing my head up. I can relate to your pain. A cold compress on my presure points sometimes helps.

    Do you all mind? Laughing is NOT GOOD for a bad back and I’m about to have a relapse :-0))
