So sorry you’re still hurting, Lynn! And that you’re sworn off of movies and massages. :/ Do you have a disc problem? Big (careful) hugs to you!

The food looks delicious… especially the charred edamame and the Indian veg. And the bread. All of it, really!

Oh my. It must be serious! Is this a reoccurring problem? :(

I might just head on over to this establishment to pig out on their junk food platter!

Aargh! Sorry to hear your back woes are continuing. Suckitude.

Did you get an MRI and/or orders for physical therapy? If you need to talk to someone who has been down the bad bad back path, you know how to reach me. Take care!!

Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re still struggling with your back. Sending lots of positive vibes your way.
