First day back to work
after three days out due to
a bad back

If you've ever suffered disc pain
I don't need to tell you what a picnic
it has NOT been

Basically, I either slept—
and with the new meds, horrific nightmares
(one of which involved
an apartment hunt with Oscar Madison)—

or watched mostly horrendous movies on
Netflix streaming, the new crack

Imagining all the crap I won't be eating
out of the vending machine
in a desperate bid to lose some
weight and give my spine a break

at least until I can get that stuff
they swapped Wolverine's bones
for installed

Life is good

I had/have (2) herniated discs in my back. It took 3.5 years, but they do get better. Staying positive helps, but on those bad days...
