Well, the sciatica is still slowing me down. Had some osteopathic "manipulation" yesterday that helped – for about 20 minutes. Looks like I'm going to have to really consider having them do the MRI (even if it means a long, painful car ride to Timbuktu to find an MRI machine my tubby ass will fit into) to see if surgery will correct the problem, because, frankly, it's obvious that the symptoms are not going to go away by themselves – and I don't want to be sucking down vicodin for the rest of my life (especially since it doesn't appear to help much.).
In the meantime, I continue to plug away slowly, and work through the pain the best I can. What's really pissing me off, though, is that not only is this sciatica shit screwing with my productivity, it's really cutting into my movie watching too, since I cannot sit comfortably in a single chair in this house for 90 minutes.
Understand what I'm saying, man? It's screwing with my MOVIES!
This is intolerable.
