I’ve been getting many people inquiring where I’ve been. The short story is, I hurt my back (inflamed disc), and was on short-term disability for a couple of months.
Hmm. That’s the long story too. 😀
I think the most important thing to bring out of that experience is, when you have a small back problem, take care of it immediately, or it will be a big back problem. It sounds logical and all, but up till this point, I’ve been nigh-invulnerable. I certainly never gave a couple moments of thought to any minor aches and pains, and never guessed the possible ordeal that I could be forced to endure.
I’d like to personally thank my management and colleagues for allowing me the time to heal.
Especially Sam Ramji–the most understanding and caring boss I’ve ever even heard of, never mind experienced.
So… I am back!
