Bad Back

My back is just 
a screwed up mess
I have everything 
from arthritis 
to a herniated disc

Just this past week 
my back went out 
just picking up
a football the
wrong way
I have been on Predisone
muscle relaxants 
and pain meds
The doctor said I
had sprained my back

I didn’t know you 
could sprain your back
I guess I learned 
something new

Now I am on the mend
My back is doing better 
but it still stiffens up
and hurts when I 
do too much stuff

I feel like an old woman 
and I am not even 40 yet
I feel like my body is
rejecting me
but such is life

Back is bad. I'm 71, Julie, and know it is no fun. I would be crawling around on the floor, unable to stand if it were not for an Inversion Board I have. I hang upside down (do the bat) every morning for a few minutes and it does wonders. Ask your doctor if he thinks it would help you. Blessings my friend!

Julie I can understand how that feels. I have experienced it with back and neck. It is nice to see you posting poetry. It can often help get the mind off physical pain. Take care :)
