Posture Perfect

Posted on | June 20, 2012 | 9 Comments |

As those of you who follow my twitter will know, I recently busted my back pretty badly.  The chair I was sitting on at work spontaneously decided two years was long enough, and it was time for the metal struts holding it together to disintegrate. The resulting  trauma did not good things to my lower spine, and it all went very pear-shaped (although not literally).I have  something called spondylolisthesis, and the osteopath has been seeing me three times a week ever since. I’ve also been wearing my corset daily, now that I’m able to actually sit up again!

The osteo has been pretty awesome, and I’ve been enjoying the acupuncture needles and the TENS machine – it’s not quite as fun when it’s for agonising pain as it is when it’s just for kicks and giggles, but I’ll take what I can get. And it definitely does help.

Visiting the osteo, though, gave me an idea – putting my corset on again after sessions means they leave me alone with the door closed to wrestle it back on. When better to get myself some Scavenger Hunt photos, hmm?

Top comes off, camera comes out, photos get taken. Whee! No near-captures this time, either …

I do some of my best thinking in here. And you  can totally tell I’ve had my face smooshed into a pillow for the last three quarters of an hour, can’t you?

Hello little posture man. Are you reaching for your genitals?

I would have happily spent twice as long taking pictures in there – especially playing with the posture man! But it was  time to re-corset myself, and slowly amble off to work.

    Ouch, poor Deelicious. I had no idea of your accident. Big hugs (but gentle ones of course) for a speedy recovery and I am very impressed that it hasn’t stopped you scavenging :) xxx

    Hee! GREAT pics as usual, though I’m sorry for the pain you’ve had to go through. TENS really does help quite a bit, I’ve had one for the past couple of years for the osteoarthritis in neck and shoulders.

    Is he reaching or directing someone off camera to the area…? And hugs on the accident.

    Clive – Thank you for the gentle hugs, hon! I will take them, and happily :)

    Kazi – Hylas has just bought a TENS machine. I can see we’re going to have some fun experimenting …

    Flip – My camera lives in my handbag. You never know when a Scavenger opportunity will come up!

    Rebel – Mostly I just wanted to see what he was capable of doing :)

    Mia – I am being careful with my back, and impatiently patient for it to heal. It takes too long!

    Phoenix – Thanks sweetheart :)

    Jack and Jill – Well, something good had to come out of it all …

    Stranded – *hugs* on your accident too, hon.

    xx Dee
