How did I get here (slip happens)

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!
