There are many mysteries in this life, one of which is my back. It's been spasming slightly for more than a week now — it's been a little kinky (so to speak) but not too bad. So, in the hopes of avoiding a serious episode, I've been trying to be a bit careful without taking too much preventative action if you know what I mean. Now, after all that time, it seems to be worsening and threatening to present me with a full blown attack.
What I want to know is this: why does it have to get bad before it can get better? If I'd had a serious attack back then, I would have expected to be more or less recovered by now. But as it is, I linger in a state of limbo, waiting for my back to make up its mind and go one way or the other. I don't understand why it has to be thus.
