Sometime around November is when I originally ruptured my L3/L4 disc. At least that’s what I can conclude, based on the type of pain I was experiencing. All was bearable until early November, when I spun my kids on a merry-go-round at the park.
That’s all it took. Twisting and pulling.
7 weeks later, I have not been back to my office yet. Most of my time is spent in a construction zone – the basement I started renovating earlier this year.
Rather than focusing on how bad it is, I’d rather share some of my experiences and lessons. Remember: smart people learn from their mistakes, but really smart people learn from other people’s mistakes!
