i have sciatica.

woo hoo (i think if i say "woo hoo" afterwards, it'll lessen the pain)!!!

it's a good thing i made yesterday's post before i went to the doctor, otherwise right now i'd be on a total pity-party/bitch-fest kick.

seriously, folks, this thing really sucks, but as mr. de campo, sir, would say, "embrace the suck."

so, i'm gonna hug and squeeze and love the shit out of my sciatica.

i'm not even going to get into the details of the dull yet excruciating pain that's radiating from my left butt cheek throughout my left lower back and on down to left my foot. no, sir!

instead, i'm going to cut this post short and head over to my classroom to do more work and embrace the suck. then, later tonight, i'll alternate between embracing the suck and yoga, which is what my doctor recommended . . . and vicodin (which i love).

i even went out and bought this awesome giant rubber ball and a bunch of dvds on how to use it, as well as some other vids on pilates and yoga. and now that i'm thinking about it, the new ceramics teacher at my school is a (fantastic) yoga instructor, so maybe she'll give me some pointers . . . and if that doesn't work, hydrocodoneland here i come!

A few quick points:
1.Kudos for providing a link to the Mayo Clinic instead of Wikipedia.
2.The gentlemen in the photo seems to be incorporating both of my favorite past times as he “sucks” at Balasana (child’s pose). I hope this isn’t one of your Yogi’s.
3.Gaiam has some good instructional videos you can supplement your home yoga practice. I like Power Yoga with Rodney Lee.
4.I’m typing this while sitting on my own giant rubber ball.
5.I just spent the past hour searching for hydrocodoneland through the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency online database and I’ve got nothing.

Hope you're ass nerve is feeling better soon!

mr. de campo, sir:

1. no problem. i figure they know SLIGHTLY more than the teeming (m)asses at wikipedia.
2. he's not, thankfully.
3. thanks! right after i'm done here, i'm heading to amazon (not THE amazon . . .).
4. you should have that checked out . . . i don't think they're supposed to get that way . . .
5. i resent the implication, mr. de campo, sir. if hunter s. thompson were around, he'd tell you it's definitely a real place . . . in fact, it's right next to what was one of his favorite destinations: etherwhiffastan.

my ass nerve and i thank you for your (very) kind advice.

Sciatica? Crud, I just thought it was a really bad case of truck driver's bum...

And Demerol is even more beautiful than hydrocodone.
