I reached a significant milestone over the weekend. I managed to sneeze.
It might not seem like such an important event but for the last couple of weeks I’ve been suffering from a lot of lower back pain. At times I found it very difficult to carry out my daily duties. Simple things, like standing up, became quite a performance.
I’m still a little stiff and sore but things are so much better. Several days back I couldn’t let myself sneeze because I knew the jolt would cause my back too much pain. Over the weekend I was able sneeze confidently.
I knew then that it was time to get back on my bike so I was very pleased to cycle into work today. I guess I still have to be careful until I’m 100% but there’s something quite wonderful about returning to ‘normal’.
Of course now I just have to be concerned that the sneezing is only an allergy thing. The last thing I want is for my back to get better only to come down with a cold.

I’m glad you’re doing better.
It’s funny how we take simple things (like a sneeze) for granted.
Anti-histamines are a lovely medication for allergies 😉
OH, I can SO relate to that!
I hurt my back in April and the first thing I had any pleasure in doing was hanging washing on the line – bending down to pick up pegs and wet clothes and stretching my arms up for hanging. Without pain! The bliss!
“I will never resent house work again!”
But, of course, I do.
