Egging through the pain

I have a recurring bulging disc problem in my upper back. Woke up this morning to a full blown attack. 

Told bridezilla no Egging today, but as the afternoon wore on I couldn't take it. I had to egg. Nothing fancy just hamburgers, but since I got my BGE I haven't missed a weekend. I wasn't going to let it beat me!

    Way to keep the streak of weekend Egging going. I've been there as well, with a discectomy 15 years ago.  The pain can be incredible, then as it starts getting better, the fear of pain makes moving almost as bad.  Hang in there.

  • Thanks TJ. I have been living with this for over 10 years. I have broken a lot of bones and been tossed, turned, and twisted in various accidents. 

    I guess I can't really complain or be shocked that I am having trouble.
