As I stood up to go home at the end of the day…
I felt a twinge of pain in my lower back.
It was quite mild so I didn’t worry much.
After all, everyone’s back hurts from time to time.
I took a few tylenol when I got home and didn’t think about it again.
But as time went on, the pain returned more and more frequently.
For example, if I took a long drive in the car…
And I’d struggle to fall asleep that night.
Or my back would start to ache when I went out for my daily run.
So I’d have to walk for a few minutes, waiting for it to go away.
When the pain was light, it was quite manageable.
I lived my life as normal…
And put on a happy face, pretending everything was okay.
But after a few years of this, my life began to fall apart… Badly.
The pain became absolute torture.
I’d be in complete agony from morning until night
