Muscles strained to the snapping
point, spine threatening to fold like
a deck of cards.  Don't know which
way to turn without screaming--hurts
to walk, sit, breathe.  Should be used
to this, but I'm not:  life, with back pain.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman

Oh, now this is one I can totally relate to! I just had my back surgery on July 29th. A disc fusion with a stomach entry. Been recovering ever since. I'm wearing my back brace right now. Not sure the surgery will have done me much good. Your description of the pain is perfect, Karla! So many times, I thought my back would snap in half. It's so exhausting, too. Stay strong.

PS. Not sure of your injury type. My hubby had back surgery for a herniated disc. He's found some relief with the Elaine Petrone Method, which is a ball(s) you lay on to rebalance/realign the spine. For my circumstances, it would be dangerous. Check with a doc first - his was prescribed, but I know you can buy them over the counter.

Yes, sometimes one wished to lie in bed and send the world where peppers grow...but then again, we can let pain decide for us can we? so with a grunt we move the old bones into plass, stretched those lazy muscles and run like a wind...on our minds.

-- ouch! -- back pain, that dreaded physical disorder -- I have been wearing a prescription transdermal patch on my back off and on for five years to combat the same problem -- my sympathy to you Karla -- I know from here you speak -- may your pain subside and decide to permanently retreat from your back -- God bless -- JMW

A double ouch! My son has suffered with back pain for many years and I hurt nearly as much as him--emotionally--when I know he is in pain. Your poem really paints a painful picture. Blessings.

Hope your feeling well soon! I am blessed and only have minor trouble with my back, but my mom had to have her spine rebuilt with rods and screws, my brother has bone spurs on his spine, and my sister has buldging yes, I count my blessings for my back. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Oh, and thank you my friend for your heartfelt review of my Boomer, it's been started last week so it helps fill the void, but the evenings are lonesome. I'm almost caught up with my garden work and canning, and getting back in the swing of to fill my void at home in the evenings I'll be back at the den with all my wonderful friends, I know it will help heal the wound and the loss.
Blessings from Ky.
