[livejournal.com profile] helenkacan will possibly not be sympathetic, but I am in a world of pain. All the driving I have to do in my daily life, plus a really bad office chair, plus stress equal lower back pain. Bad enough pain that last night, when I tried to roll over I would have pain that made me yelp. I'm taking Naproxen and Tiger Balm seems to also help.

Despite not sleeping well, I had a good job interview. The attorney's assistant is retiring, and he kept telling me how impressive my resume is. If nothing else, I got an ego boost.

I stopped at Einstein Bros to get a bagel and soda as I wrote my thank you note. I keep a card in my briefcase whenever I have an interview, already addressed to the interviewer. I ran into our mail carrier as I was nearing the village, so I was able to hand it directly to her.

Back pain is the absolute worst, because no matter what you do, there's no way to get comfortable. Good shoes help, too.

maybe a back pillow for support while driving - hubby uses a brace when we have to drive for any distance

I recently had physical therapy for lower back pain. I was skeptical at first, but it's surprising how much they can do for you.

Um ... more likely that I'd be the MOST sympathetic to your plight. Imagine my shock in the last few weeks when I woke up a couple of times finding out I'd turned over in my sleep - something impossible until I'd started taking naproxen.

If you must drive long distances, I second the car pillow idea (does obus forme make car-specific cushions?).
