I just can not take the pain anymore. The past few days have been very difficult - since I have never had back issues before. And today, when my back hurt just sitting in the car, I knew I could not wait any longer.
So, here is the discussion I had with my body as I was heading back into town today:
Me: So, body, what have we done different in the past few days to injure my back?
Body: Well, we did just do a marathon
Me: Did you forget that we trained properly for it?
Body: Good point. Lets look at your diet.
Me: Well, I did treat myself to a fast food burger on TUESDAY.
Body: And on WEDNESDAY your back started to bother you!
Me: SO THE FAST FOOD CAUSED THE PAIN.
Problem solved. No more fast food for me.
I know that sounds crazy - but that worked for me when I had strep throat years ago. And I didn't eat fast food for over two years. :)
I told this to the doctor and he thought I was weird. But he just thinks I somehow strained my back and gave me some meds. Hopefully I'll be back to normal with in a week!
