My back is starting to feel better, but that's not saying a lot. Staying home from work. I hate to miss the work time and I know losing a day will add to my stress level and workload. I cannot find a comfortable position - stand, sit, walk.

I think I'll take it as "vacation" because I am right at the vacation cap and have only 3 days of sick time left for the rest of the year.

I wish I were in NM with my family! Homesick! My brother is there from Japan and my sister from Colorado, so the cousins get to play!

    I have always used heat for my back, but my physiotherapist is recommending ice! Kind of an epiphany because ice has worked so well for my other ailments! Why don't you give it a try?
    Its really a shame you couldn't use your vacation time to travel to NM, but I am guessing its not affordable :( and too far to drive.. Using Skype to have a family chat is not a bad idea either..
    Hope your back eases soon..

    I hope your back is better soon. Working would at least take your mind off your absent family.

    Does it hurt to lie down? Sorry for your predicament. Hope it stops hurting soon. emoticon

    I hope your back feels all the way better very soon.
    Do you skype? If so, maybe you can have a video chat with your family. I've found that, while it's not quite as good as being there, it's a great way to stay connected when they're all in one place and you're in another.
