I hate my back


Okay. This is a blog post you do not need to read. It will be a stream of consciousness – almost a diary entry.

I know my title sounds whiny, but I slept 18 hours on Sunday, a little better on Monday, and then 11 or 12 hours yesterday, and I have been awake ever since yesterday around 4 pm….

I must get somethings done today, during the day time, so I must stay awake, rather than sleep.

So, now that I am finally sleepy, and the sun is up – I will whine a little, so I can stay up a couple more hours to get some LIFE things done.

Check mail, put out the trash, check the bank, etc.

FUNNY thing is?

After years of normal days and abnormal days, the new me seems ‘normal.’

Somedays I am awake 20 plus hours. You can get a LOT DONE on those days, but they are so few, they do not make up for the days I sleep 16 to 20 hours a day.

From the back injury, I don’t usually sleep past 20 hours a day.

When I write that, I chuckle, because that is what I now see as normal. Hibernation like a bear, seems normal.

However, I did have a super record of about 60 hours of sleep, but that was when a doctor prescribed hydrocodone, AFTER I told her I was allergic. She prescribed a different ‘strength,’ so I did not recognize the different name. That event was about 60 hours with about 3 hours conscious. When I came back to humanity, I read the label, and flushed the !@#$.

So, I truly hate my back, but unlike a car, I can’t take me back to the dealer for warranty work, or just buy a replacement.

So, I live with my back. And I thank God he allowed my back to go, instead of my brain and good sense of humor. I know so many people with healthy bodies, and sick brains … For me, this is better. A life with a good brain and terrible body.

Ya’ll have a great day, even during this time of great terror in our world. Remember, terrorists may rock the world, but God is still in command. When he wants to stop it, he will. And I do think that day will be soon.

    Wayne: do you think it’s possible that your back issues are punishment from God for claiming that you speak for God, or possibly because you might be misrepresenting God on a host of issues? Just wondering if that ever crossed your mind. Cheers. -drc

      Dr. Clark,

      Interesting comment, I have never thought of it that way.

      That would indicate that long before I spoke to God, God punished me through Iatrogenesis … And I doubt he punished me before a theoretical sin. And I doubt the person causing the iatrogenic injury was ‘speaking for God.’

      Thank you,
