Been off work for three months with a herniated lower back disc, caused by my school work with a group of v small kids with multiple learning disabilities. Too much time either on the floor with them or leaning too far forwards. At the beginning I was collapsing in painful spasms anf could only move slowly round the house by hanging on to stuff. It's easing now, I can walk more and have started physio. But I'm still v limited in how long I can sit or stand, so guitar playing is off limits. So frustrating being able to see them but not play and my fingertips are going soft. No real message here, just a whinge.
