Damn you karma!

So, for those of you who ddnt catch this on the birthday thread, a while back emohawk had an opportunity for a certain amount of malicious fun. A good friend of mine had been depressed by his 30th birthday because it and his 1 year old son were impressing on him how old he has gotten. Being aware of this, as a birthday gift, I presented him with a nice, well made...cane.

I informed him it was because I knew he had been feeling old and I thought it would make it easier moving forward. forward a few days to yesterday, I was attending day one of my mini-mester class when walking to the door I suddenly developed a pain in my back. being someone who has terrible posture, these arent completely uncommon so I just had a painkiller and figured that would be the end of it. well, over the course of the three hours till lunch break instead of getting better it got tighter and more uncomfortable. when break happened I was quite in pain. This culminated when I was in the restroom when all of a sudden I had a burst that was so bad en I actually cried out and for a moment I could barely stand up.

Folks, a few days after teasing someone about being old I threw my back out for the first time ever. Savor that a moment.

When I left class I went to the wall greens and spent nearly 100 bucks on various treatments and now, something like 15 hours later have managed to get myself more or less back in shape, least I can get in and out of a chair without wincing, but due to what just happened I am actually taking steps to correct my problems, I moved my keyboard and adjusted my chair so now I am sitting with correct posture, as well as trying not to hunch when I walk to avoid further problems

so I guess you could say I was...

Scared straight.

    Was waiting for the punchline, were your friend comes in and offers you his cane, it never came.

    Wait till he finds out, when he slaps you on the back in good humor and you see stars.

    How was he gonna find out?

    heh. Way I see it what he doesn't know won't hurt me.

    Be sure to keep your physical activities on the reasonable level ( meaning "healthy, but don't overdo it for it's just as counterproductive as being bedridden" ) and have a massage every now end then. It should go away completely very soon. Exercising on a regular basis will greatly help reduce the chances of your back pain coming back later in life.
    ( I know this shit, I wrote a paper on it ).

    Unless your exercise is lifting with poor form. But do you even lift, Tobias?

    Yes, well, that would go under the "overdoing it" part.
    Get well soon, Toby!

    If your friend finds out, he will buy you a wheelchair.

    Get well soon-ish, anyway! (I would say soon, but I think karma won't let you...)

    Happened to me a couple times back when I was doing stock work in college. Do some stretching exercises each day.
