Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

I forgot to mention yesterday one of the side effects of prolapsed discs. Associated with these, if you don't get them treated soon enough (and since three - THREE - different doctors told me over the past two years that I certainly did not have a prolapsed disc, I haven't had them treated soon enough), is a side effect called disc dehydration. This means, you've probably already guessed, that the fluid that should be inside the disc is no longer inside the disc and therefore the disc is littler than it should be.

The discs sit between the vertebrae in your back (stop me if I'm going too fast) to stop them rubbing against each other. When the discs burst, there is less space between the vetebrae. Disc dehydration occurs naturally over time anyway, through wear and tear, and is the reason that old people appear to shrink.

They appear to shrink because their spine isn't as long as what it used to be. They appear to shrink because they are shrinking.

People, I am shrinking.

Stop laughing. I was short enough to start with. If this continues, I could feasibly be playing one of the seven dwarves in panto this time next year.
