Back pain has got to be some of the worst pain in the world. It isn’t like limb pain where you can just not put weight on that limb, or not use it- difficult as that may be- and work around the pain. Nope, if your back hurts you’re just fucked. Wanna stand? Pain. Wanna sit? Pain. Wanna lay down? Pain. Want to continue existing? Pain.
This would probably be largely mitigated if I bothered to stretch in the morning and had better posture and took more breaks from the tedious and repetitive motions of folding and stuffing and bending, but I also just so easily forget to do those things. Which isn’t an excuse, not by a long shot, but at least I have some sort of reasoning for it besides ‘Derp my back hates me.’ Being able to recognize what I need to do to fix my problem is step one to actually fixing it, right?
Ugh. Back pain.
