+1 for Evil

My sciatica is better ... but the only two things that have helped is time, pain killers and a pillow between my legs and sleeping on my right side.

Then a few days ago I stepped the wrong way and I know have a swollen left ankle.  I can still walk with a slight limp. 

I refuse to let Evil win and I am still making it this weekend.  It is not like my chances of winning are any worse :D

It's work that's slowly killing me day by day. I stand, mainly in one place, all day. So that takes a toll on my lower back and legs. And the way the POS touch screen computers are set up at work, I'm non-stop extending my right arm to use it. Several hundred times a day. So that is slowly destroying my arm and shoulder.
My chiropractor told me once I stop working, I probably won't need to see him anymore.

My tale of wow is that for the first time in over 2 years, I spent over an hour walking.
Wasn't so bad, but I started to feel sore; more than usual.
I look down, and the whole inside of my calf is black and blue !
One of my friends, I was attempting this minor hike with, is a doctor.
Says I better get off my leg and take it easy. If the black and blue doesn't start to dissipate in a few hours I better get to the doctor.
So the next day it is a lot less black and blue, but went to ortho anyways.
It wasn't a blood clot or anything that serious. I more than likely had something called an adhesion, which let go. This turned out to be not a bad thing and my leg is less stiff now. GO figure. Why didn't I just keep going to physical therapy. Oh because my doctor and the insurance company said something to the effect that I had received the maximum therapeutic value therapy would provide. Ya right!! So now I am walking more

In a way I need a rest from the matches. Yesterday's match at Freeport, which normally finishes 11-11:30, ended at 2 pm. It was crowded, slow, and very strong sun. And by the time we finished, my squad of originally 10, was down to 3. Everyone left early, and the few of us left, had to break down the stage. I was completely drained by the time I got home.

I'd call you fragile Bob, but I think it would get confusing on this site;)

Went down to Freeport today to see if I can shoot. I can draw, and hold the gun no problem. I was able to slow fire the gun no problem. But when I tried double taps, it was hurting. I guess the need to grab the gun firm during rapid fire, puts stress on the bicep and tendon. Hopefully in a week it'll be better, or I'll be slow firing at the Area 8 match.  :nono

You're not going to believe it, because I really can't myself, but I just injured myself again!   :que  I was draining out some of the water(sludge) from my boiler like I do every year this time, in preparation for the service people coming this week. As soon as I grab the drain valve, it broke off(must've rotted over the years), and hot water came pouring out all over my hands. Needless to say I got scalded on my fingertips, and half my finger tips blistered up. I've been holding ice packs in my hands for the last hour, in hopes that I can keep the swelling to a minimum. Right now my trigger finger and right thumb are good, but my other middle fingers are blistered. I don't know what impact this will have for the Area 8 match. Hoping the blisters are gone by then. At worst, I'll have to tape up my fingers to protect them.   :ouch:

PB when it rains, it pours. Of course it really sucks when it's pouring scolding hot water!  Feel better.

My plan is to start living  life dangerously. Sky diving, bungee jumping, cliff diving, etc. Figure I have nothing to lose. Living life safely has been killing me.
