It was about the middle of yesterday’s shift when I suddenly felt the familiar tingle in my lower back. It was a muscle spasm again, and it would only be a matter of time before I was bowed over, by pain if not discomfort.
I told my supervisor as much, but it was close to my second break, so I just had to last long enough until then, as I would be able to down to the Mercury Drug branch at the ground floor of Market Market and buy some muscle relaxant. Which I did. I took a tablet almost immediately, and while the effects weren’t immediate, it did get me through the remaining hours of my shift.
As I feel these aches and pains, I really feel my age. It’s a little annoying.
