Dave!It would seem the decades spent abusing my body are finally catching up to me.

Turns out that by not eating healthy, avoiding regular exercise, and forgoing critical concepts such as "sleep," I've set myself up for a serious reckoning later in life.

And here we are.

Last week I threw my back out setting my pack on the floor.

Yesterday I spent fifteen minutes trying to remember what I had for lunch when somebody asked three hours later. I still don't know.

Tonight I at a chocolate bar that put me in such gastrointestinal distress that I thought I was going to pass out from the pain.

So it's all downhill from here, I'm guessing.

2015 is not the year I was hoping for, and we're not even out of January yet.

    Dear Dave,

    I know very few people who throw their backs out while doing amazing things. It’s anecdotal evidence, I’ll give you that, but I threw my back out a number of silly ways:

    – Putting an empty paint can on the floor.
    – Sitting on a lounge chair near a pool.
    – Tying my shoes.
    – Sleeping “funny” (whatever that means).
    – Carrying groceries.

    Ok, that last one is not a silly thing per se, but it’s not exactly “carrying 27 kittens out of a burning building” amazing either.

    No! Refuse to give in.

    I’ll second what LeSombre says. That guy who jumped out of the capsule at the edge of the atmosphere to go skydiving? Did not throw out his back. I’ve thrown mine out while getting out of bed too fast in the morning.

    P.S. I got some life hacks I’ve had to develop to deal with my own ailing health, I’ll send them your way.

    Add showering to the list of things that can throw one’s back out.
