Out of the Blue

For the past week I've had a real pain in the ass. Literally. I went out with my friends last Friday night, and on the train ride home my butt started to really hurt, right at the top of the hamstring. At first this sounds like sciatica, but all that I've read about this suggests that it isn't, and I think it's just a muscle strain. But as far as I know I didn't do anything to strain it, and it was fine on the walk to the station before flaring up as I sat. I'm generally pretty good at tolerating discomfort, but this was bad enough that I was taking Advil for the next couple of days after that. The only thing I could connect with this is that I'd been sitting on a different chair since my Herman Miller Aeron bit the dust, and the chair was lower and much harder than my old one. I'd finally hauled the Aeron to the dump after failing to find a way to fix it or have it fixed. My impulse had been to find some sort of less-expensive knock-off to replace it, as the Aeron is quite pricey. But MrsBlue was insistent I get another, as the old one had served admirably for 20 years of heavy use, actually making it cheap compared to my previous habit of buying a new hundred-dollar chair every year. She also pointed out I used to get regular backaches in my pre-Aeron days, so she won the argument, and my new one should be delivered today. This probably won't help with the strained gluteus maximus I'm suffering at the moment, but hopefully will prevent recurrences once I've recovered.

You must be over 40 Blue, that's when things start breaking on their own, no effort on your part needed.  



I should be coding.
