thanks krazykat (aren’t all kats a bit krazy?)
I was almost, well, got defensive when he asked since I’d been “living with it all these years.. why now”.
I thought – if you had severe back pain that nearly crippled you, caused you to have trouble working, getting things done, and you went 50 years thinking it was normal – in part because that’s what you always heard “oh, that’s just Bill being Bill”, then suddenly someone comes along and says, no, that pain is caused by xxx and we can fix that now”, would you not jump at the chance?
I figured that one day it could kill me, too. (VERY accident prone, speed a lot, take risks in cars)……… best do something about it now that I suspected I knew what it was and knew what to ask for treatment for.REPORT ABUSE
