starkers, old pal, you and I have a lot in common, my back is fubared
Yeah, I have spinal issues with my neck and lower back (no disc at all between some vertebrae), and some days I can barely get mobile... thank goodness for my PC, WC and all the good people here, otherwise I'd go out of my cotton pickin' mind with boredom.
Thirty odd years ago I had a bike prang and the medicos said that I'd probably never walk again... not only did I walk, I returned to work and did furniture removals for several years, until it got the better of me and was told to quit or end up in a wheelchair.
Oh well, it's not about what I can't do anymore! If I'm mindful of my limitations I can still do a fair bit and don't need any help to wipe my bum... tho cutting my toenails is another story... can't reach to do that anymore.
<-- There's that constipated smiley again!
Nope... that's the 'sheer concentration and I'm determined to peel one off' smiley.
Perhaps someone should modify it to have an animated gas cloud, all speshul like for us methanologists.
