My back went into spasm last week and I spent the most of the week in pain and immobile. I'm doing much much better this week. Good enough to be at work part time and figure out which of my many ephemera items would have some nifty bad back illustrations.
It's not my kidneys, or rheumatism, or any other ailment that DeWitt's pills were supposed to cure. Goodness knows what was in those little pills. It was after the pure food and drug act of 1906, so they probably weren't filled with 90 proof alcohol.
I did feel just about like this last week. Ouch ouch ouch.
Yep, I agree. Your health is your capital. I'm feeling pretty good now, and mighty glad I can visit my CranioSacral practitioner, chug Advil, and skip the DeWitt's, even though they still make pain pills.
I hope you are feeling good.
