View Full Version : Critical Hit

Again. Re-injured my back. Seems to have pinched a nerve this time too ( Pain straight to the toes. ). So I will be temporarily off work and out of commission this week. ><

It's...frustrating to say the least. Though this time I knew exactly what to do the second I slipped and wrenched it. Which is to say dope self up, crawl into bed and prepare for the next 12 hours of my life to suck balls.

and sucketh hairy globules it did.

That was about 17 hours ago. Just able to sit in a chair now. For a little bit anyway.

Seriously though, incredibly frustrating. I loath being unable to do anything ( Anything constructive anyway ). I mean I can watch things on my Cintiq in bed but there's only so many seasons of Canada's Worst Driver I can get through. ;p

Since I can't lay flat using my laptop isn't really that easy. The Cintiq has its own stand though.

Saw the title and pretty much knew what had happened without reading. Get well soon, dude.

Maybe you should take some levels in Rogue until you get uncanny dodge. I doubt ice has that many levels. Or just get some fortification on your clothes.

Seriously, sorry to hear about your back. I hope you heal well and may the happy drugs take you to the pink planes of motorcycle bunnies.

geez! again?

hope you feel better soon gk, and hope your furry multi-tentacled flesh eating symbiote lets you rest. (ours love nothing more than a prone and helpless human, so....)

When I wrench my back, I've found that taking a really hot shower helps a lot. Hope you feel better soon.

Ouch. :( I've hurt my back a couple of times. There's no pain quite like it. Get well soon, GK.

At least CWB is a good show. They wanted my grandmother to appear on it actually, I might still have their e-mail lying around somewhere.

Aw. Get better,GK! *sends Vicodin and electric blankets*

If you need a nursemaid, I'm sure there are a few volunteers around... Mango might even volunteer if you don't ask him to dress up in the little outfit...

Go see David Kvalheim at Broadway and Oak if you can. He's my latest favourite back guy. Best of luck.


PS - me, in the little outfit!? Froglet, WTF?!?

I said if he DIDN'T ask you to wear it :angel:

No Gravekeeeper post this week? What will the fangirls do? Oh, horrors!

Seriously, GK, I hope everything works out. I will suggest that you see a doctor, chiropractor, massage therapist, or someone who knows what the holy Hera they're doing when it comes to backs, because this is bordering on comic tragedy at this point. Honestly, dude, you are far too young to be having this much freakin' trouble with your back. See someone for it, damn it. And I don't mean "watch House on tv." I mean SEE someone.

You're not nearly as much fun to make fun of when you are laid up and whimpering in pain, ya know. :lol:

Ooh, ouch ouch! Hope it gets better soon - I'm sending Take-Care Bear Stares off your way! :p

Yes, its not very sporting. I'm a slow moving, easy target at the moment. Honestly, its not even my back so much as the nerve pinching now. It hurts like all motherfark but only in places it logically shouldn't.

Sciatica I believe is the fancy learnin' term. Sucks monkey nuts. Sweaty monkey nuts. After the monkey has been defiling itself in the eyes of the Lord.

A manager at one of my bars has been suffering from that lately.

But that still doesn't change the fact that you need to go see some sort of professional for this!

As in NOW. Hobble on in, damn it!

02-24-2009, 10:19 AM
Meep, I hope you get better soon GK! You don't deserve these injuries. T_T

Finally - found you (nope - not a stalker - just wondering where you were)!

Although, a bit of a fangirl I must say ;) (BTW - you seem to be bumping into my brother out in BC - my apologies (he's not the loach, but I'm pretty sure he was the Skytrain "diver" LMAO on that one - typical for him!!! :lol:)

I hope you're feeling better. I've always found the T-4's were pretty good for what ails ya' (Tylenols not tax forms).

I'm always so looking forward to your posts, but I'm hoping you're just taking it easy and getting better.

Mayhaps they should be getting you your own ASSIGNED - NON-ADJUSTABLE FOR ANYONE ELSE CHAIR for your job?

IIRC - You have to share your chair. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Take care of yourself!

We don't have assigned chairs at work, though everyone typically has a favourite if you will. Since I work graveyard I can usually locate my preferred throne quite easily as its not like there's anyone else in the office to take it at the time.

Will be a bit weird tonight. They renovated the entire office last weekend and I haven't seen it yet since I've been off with grievous injury. Could be a tad surreal returning this evening.

But oh well, the medication makes everything good right now. Very good.

Remember kids, don't do drugs........take them in prescribed doses instead.

02-25-2009, 04:46 PM
Good luck GK - hope you make it through ok.

02-25-2009, 05:07 PM
Ah opiates, mother natures little hug.

I hope you feel better soon, and I second (or maybe third) going to see someone about your back. Like a chiropractor, or massage therapist. When your back goes out, its no fun. And they can help.
