I want one of those suitcases with a seat attached that arch capitalist Tony Benn invented.

Really though, my old boss showed me a couple of stretches, which really helped. My back is always going to hurt, but rest, cod liver oil, stretching, sensibleness and cop on all help.
I had a MAN CHAT with a friend recently. His missus' back pain is so bad that he's seriously considering leaving her. They've been together for years, with a kid, but he's at the end of his tether. She just wants to smoke weed and take painkillers and complain and not listen to any useful advice whatsoever. Back pain is a serious thing, and dealing with it properly is a serious thing. It's good that you're trying to look after yourself.

He'll not leave her, he loves her to bits, and he'll never do anything that might hurt the kid. but I'm glad I had a MAN CHAT with him. He needed it. But her back pain is wrecking her life, and my mates life, and their kids life. It's an awful thing.

That's really sad. I wish I had some useful advice, but I don't

Much better than some alternatives though.

A lifelong mate of mine more or less won't talk to me now because I suggested his partner probably doesn't have magic powers, and might actually be a bit manipulative.

In the meantime she's touring about, giving out about my mate, boy friends all over the shop, telling everyone who'll listen she's divorced.

But yeah I reckon an ended relationship, even if it was a bit grisly, is way better than a bad relationship every day of the week.

Aye. I haven't seen him since.

I mean, I've never heard him mention that his missus was difficult before, he's put it all down some recent debilitating back injury she's had. But now she's unbearable, screaming and smashing plates and shit like that. She's in so much pain she can't think straight.

I suggested talking to the Samaritans as a psychiatrist would be too expensive. "We're already trying that", he said. I'm like, oh god, well this is really serious. So I hadn't much in the way of advice either.

I kind of did suggest leaving her, as I've been in a similar pickle, but he should take the kid with him. I didn't WANT him to do that of course, but he's in a dire scenario.


Anyway, my backs been wrecked today. Everyone thought I was angry with them, when actually I'm just in pain.

A house containing a constantly stoned mother who screams and smashes crockery is not a healthy place to be bringing up a kid. Doesn't matter what the reason for her behaviour is.

I bet they could access a counsellor/therapist on the NHS - might not be a full-blown psychiatrist, but still could be helpful

Takes years sadly. Probably still better than Ireland though.

Couldn't sleep with the back and leg pain so took today off. Still jiggerd. Too sore to do stretches which I'm told will alleviate the pain. What's the best non prescription pain medicine for this?

I would lie on my back and put the bad leg up against the wall, as vertically as possible.

camomile seems to my latest trip this week. and wanging the CBD into me.
