Benefits of Back Pain

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005 · 3 Comments

It’s day 2 of my excrutiating back pain. It hurts like hell if I do pretty much anything — walk, stand, bend over, put on my shoes, take off my shoes — so I just try to sit perfectly still. A sick part of me actual likes being in pain like this.

First, because it reminds me how lucky I am to have my good health most of the time — without our health, what good does anything else do us? Secondly, it allows me to be lazy (as if I needed an excuse) and to have my wonderful wife wait on me. We all like to be spoiled from time to time.

And speaking of spoiling, Jen and I are considering pampering ourselves with some full-body massages at one of Saratoga’s famous day spas. Known for health, history, and horses, the healing spring waters (and the full-body massages, no doubt) are part of what put Saratoga on the map. It’s about time we experienced more of the first “H” than just the spring waters around town.

    Hope your back feels better. I’d take a massage over that spring water any day.
