I hate discomfort's side effects

Mild venting here: I have some moderate lower-back pain today. Yes, I've done the back exercises you're supposed to do (do not lie down with ordinary muscle-related back pain if you can avoid it), and I'm sure it will go away in a day.

But one consequence is that I have just a touch less energy and a lot less capacity to concentrate... just in time for my son's sleepover birthday party tonight. So if you read some blog entries and wonder why I'm blogging instead of completing other work tasks... well, some things take more concentration than others. The discomfort's mild in terms of pain. The mental costs are much greater.

Incidents such as this always makes me appreciate every pain-free day I ever have (which fortunately is most of them, at this point in my life).
