Bear with me as I try to get back into the swing of things again. I don't have much on my mind today other than my aching back. I don't know what I did, but Sunday morning, I woke up with a horrible muscle strain in my back. It has been killing me for the past two days. The picture here is exactly where it is (except it is on the other side).
Nothing seems to help. I have taken a boatload of Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Skelaxin, and Flexeril. Nothing! If I move, the pain is so bad that it takes my breath away and even causes me to cough sometimes.
Yet, here I am at work today. Why? Because my wife wants me to go with her to visit her family next weekend - spilling over into next week. I can't miss any this week if I am missing some next week. I don't want to go, but I never do so I think I should try.
My sister is concerned about me because I had a "vision" last week of my her going to see my wife at work, crying and telling her that I collapsed. It seems that I might have died by the way my sister looked, but I couldn't really tell. I guess I made the mistake of telling her because now she is way too worried about it. Thank God I said nothing to my wife about it.
I know, you are are thinking, "What are you talking about? What do you mean, 'vision'?" I don't know what to tell you other than I while was driving last week, my temples twinged and I saw this vision - it was kind of like a dream except I was driving so I was in both places at once. It hurt (my temples, that is) like the dickens, though, and I think we all know how much the dickens hurts.
I really didn't think too much of it except just a morbid curiosity of whether or not it had any legitimacy. I do make good predictions, sometimes, you know.
So, if you don't hear from me . . . ;)
