Cue Faith No More.

How does that song go again? Falling to Pieces? "...somebody put me together..."

Yeah. Right now I feel like my life is crumbling apart all around me. I'm sure if that is true or not, but it sure feels that way.

And to ensure that I am feeling especially miserable, my back just threw itself out an hour ago. I'm in blinding pain whenever I try to stand up, which by the way, I can't do. I'm stuck in my chair at my desk at work, and I really can't move. At all. lolitasir will be bringing me a TENS unit hopefully by lunchtime, but until then, I'm stuck at my desk in an amazing amount of agonizing pain.

Past experiences tell me that this will last for at least a week.

And right smack in the middle of the busiest time I have had all year at work. I simply cannot afford to be out of the office.

Which is a shame, because I should be in an emergency room right now.

Well, sucks to be me.

I'm so sorry! Isn't there a point that you should go to the hospital regardless of work?

Keep us updated if you can, I sure hope that TENS unit works a miracle.

Hope to talk to you soon.

So I guess that drink is out of the question, eh? Man, and you were only SUPPOSED to have seen one of the Boston Back-Breakers...eerie.

Back and forth, I sway with the wind
Resolution slips away again
Right through my fingers, back into my heart
Where it's out of reach and it's in the dark
Sometimes I think I'm blind
Or I may be just paralyzed
Because the plot thickens every day
And the pieces of my puzzle keep crumblin' away
But I know, there's a picture beneath
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens...
Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together
Layin' face down on the ground
My fingers in my ears to block the sound
My eyes shut tight to avoid the sight
Anticipating the end, losing the will to fight
Droplets of "yes" and "no"
In an ocean of "maybe"
From the bottom, it looks like a steep incline
From the top, another downhill slope of mine
But I know, the equilibrium's there
Indecision clouds my vision
No one listens
Because I'm somewhere in between
My love and my agony
You see, I'm somewhere in between
My life is falling to pieces
Somebody put me together

That really does suck. I hope you can move enough to get out of there soon - at the very least, you shouldn't have to be in so much pain AND at work.

I'm hoping we'll still get to see you this weekend, but I'll understand completely if you can't make it out.

Awe ... and I was gonna ask for a birthday beating. ;)

Seriously, I am sorry you are in pain, and hope that the TENS unit does the trick. *gentle hugs*

:(

I hope you're better soon. I'm surprised you're able to type coherently.

*hugs* <-- but not too hard.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. I hope you get better soon. Would it be possible for you to work from home?

I so understand! Had this happen the am I was to leave for my last IML!!
But I can tell ya, a frozen water bottle (small size) placed on my back, against the back of my chair while I am sitting did a lot to help me!

It seems to be that way for a lot of people on my F-list recently.

I am sorry about your back. Mine doesn't do it yet but I'm sure it will eventually. I hear it's an exquisite form of pain. :(

A week? At least it'll end?

I wish I had something warm and appropriately comforting to say to you . . . be well.
