I am sore this morning; My back problem is one that will stay with me forever; every time I heal it I carry something that is too heavy (for me that is over 30 lbs). time have lowered my ability to lift; I can lift, but it takes awhile to get over it. My back is not strong anymore. I am not in a position where I cannot do anything it is a hit or miss type of situation. Most days it is just soreness and stiffness; sometimes I get down and almost motionless and that is almost hospital time.
