I have always been a fan of Biology, and remember many things from my high school Anatomy class that should have been long ago forgot. So generally I appreciate learning more about the human body and how it works. But lately I've been learning new things about the human body by breaking them in my own!! Remember the back pain I mentioned last week, well it hasn't gone away, and this morning drove me from my slumber. So I went to the doctor. It seems that I inflamed my sacroiliac joint. Now if you had asked me yesterday about it, I would have told you with no degree of uncertainty that the sacroiliac was something Bugs Bunny made up. Nope, it's a real thing as you can see in the picture above. It is where the ilium and the sacrum meet, hence the name. And what's the best way to inflame said joint? Lifting and twisting, say while, oh, loading a truck. Fuck!!! I'm not ready to be decrepit, dammit!!!!! So I got two shots of steroids into my butt, a script for Vicodin, and a 'give it a week' admonition to go easy on it. Hopefully this will go away and I can get back to work finding new things to learn about...the hard way.
