That sucks, Loopy. Annoying though it is, do give it time to recover. It is so easy to re-damage and make worse back problems by doing too much too soon
And once you are doing better, maybe look into some stretches and exercises for backs? If work has a fair amount of leaning and lifting (as I'd imagine it would), and given that you are fairly busty, putting time into a strong back might be a good investment -- annoying as all that sort of thing is.
I know you are right, I am going to have to try and take it easy with all the cleaning and stuff I need to get done today. I'm not going to be any good to anyone if I'm hobbling around like an old lady!
It does involve a lot of stretching and leaning and repetitive movements, which I think is what hurt my back yesterday. You are right, I probably should try and look into some back strengthening exercises. Thank you for the advice!
