Maybe UC has actually suffered from a back injury at some point and this all moot.

Can we get a history of his spinal health?

I once fell from the top loft of my barn onto a pile of rail road ties after attempting to walk across a warped plank. That really hurt.
I have been in 8 motor vehicle accidents that I can recall as a passenger, 13 as a driver.... of these, 3 would be considered "serious" and medics were dispatched.
I have been stabbed in the back in the proverbial sense, no lasting damage.
I was at the bottom of a pig pile in 83
Once had a very obese "friend" who liked to be on top.
I lift things up, and put them down alot.
um...
One time my horse flipped out and ran at top speed... I eventually fell off.... I was more scared than hurt.
my back hurts right now, actually.

I did not suffer TBI, bro.... and you can't count the passenger ones dude... I mean c'mon. :tapfoot:
Many adults have this odd capacity to behave as a parent when caring for their children, and otherwise when not.


you are welcome to ask my children if they feel safe near or in the care of their dad.... first they'll politely reply, then they might cut you.

Or the ones where you "were not at fault". Accidents can be a two ways street. That said, UC is not allowed to drive me or ride in my car. Accident Prone'd. :funny1:

It was just a question, not a judgement. I think there's at least partial responsibility for getting in the car with somebody who may not be fit drive. However sometimes accidents just happen and there's nothing a driver or passenger can do. People run red lights and shit. I see more and more at lights where it's already turned green on my end and somebody comes flying by.

I'm old as dirt man, that's not that bad considering my life and the 30 year span involved, and many happened in the first 10 years of driving... my first child did not arrive till I was 27

:winkydinky: :lol:

TBI is Traumatic Brain Injury.... two of my best friends had it to the extreme.... I had to teach one how to tie his shoes again.

when you have pain for an ongoing duration, and there's pills that take it away... I think it's only human to want those pills.

I remembered another one. At UPS, they have trailers that have "two floors" so packages are stacked in the "Basement" and then the hinged floor doors are closed and they put packages "upstairs" the floor doors are very heavy and use eye and hooks to keep them up while you are hunched over working. One door had no hook so the shift manager held it for me while I was hunched over pickin boxes.... He dropped the door and it swung down and knocked me flat on my on my face and left a massive abrasion and bruise.
Also, in Mexico (and the EX wife can attest) I was hunched down on the side of the road taking a picture and a van backed up, right into my back.... that scared the bejezzus outta me.
all troofs.

personally I feel pretty fortunate to never have had a serious back injury.

i've had what felt like a slipped disc or a pinched nerve a few times, but i only say that cause it hurt for awhile and i didn't know what else it could have been. it always cleared up in a day or 2 though so i'm guessing it wasn't either of those things.

there is that weird feeling that ya get sometimes, maybe just from straining yourself, where your knees kinda go out and there's almost hollow sensation in your middle back. it has happened a few times lifting weights if i wasn't paying attention and jerked the bar off the ground using my back instead of legs. i usually took that as a sign to stop and go have a beer.
