As I’ve mentioned before, I have back problems. I’m a 21 year old with a seriously fucked up back; but hey, what can you do about genetics? Apparently stick a five inch needle into your spine and release steroids, at least that’s my understanding of what just happened. I have to take it easy for a few days, and can’t shower until Sunday because the injection site must stay dry or it might become infected. It really wasn’t that bad though, I’m just a little sore, and the numbing process was the only part that really hurt.
Still, it’s strange to think that I’ve had something in my spine. My spine! And this probably won’t be the only time, it’s usually done in sets of three. As I was informed, this first time should reduce the leg pain a good deal, the second time should practically get rid of it, and the last one takes care of the back pain. Yeah, I think I’ll be going back for those other two. Especially as my mom saw an old woman come out before I did, who had just received her last shot, put her walker aside and start dancing.
In other news, I now have a wonderful excuse to be lazy this weekend, ain’t it grand?
