As attentive readers will know, I am not well — specifically, a compression fracture of the spine at T8. These ailments will generally cure themselves in time (six to eight weeks), but they are extraordinarily painful, and there are powerful painkiller to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, they have powerful side-effects, too, and one of them is a general dopeyness that is frightening. Moreover, they affect fine motor control too, and I can’t stand for long (I stand to use the computer). For all these reasons, I am finding it difficult to keep the website running. We’ll see how well I do it over the next month or so.
How did it happen? Nobody knows, and there was no ‘precedent event’. Age? Osteoporosis? Possible yes to both. Not fun, I can attest to that.
