A little over a year ago I began to experience some gnarly backpain. As an avid runner, I chalked it up to an injury related to that. As an avid idiot, I continued running nevertheless.

Over the next three months, my back pain increased significantly resulting in my inability to run altogether. After a few x-rays, some bloodwork, and a CT scan—the results of which showed nothing out of the ordinary (which I’d later find is quite common when it comes to back injuries).

By this point, I was worn out, frustrated, and disheartened. Not only was I unable to run, but simple activities such as standing up and sitting down, getting in and out of cars, or grocery shopping became borderline unbearable at times because of the pain. Any semblance of quality of life was non-existent for me. I promise I’m not being dramatic in these sentiments. Anyone who has experienced serious to severe back issues can certainly vouch for that.

Eventually, my doctor ordered an MRI, the results showing that I had a herniated disc, severe spinal stenosis, disc bulges, and degenerative disc disease. (Yeah, it’s about as fun as it sounds.)  (more…)

Though it happened at the end of last year (yeah, I suck at keeping this site updated), I’m now writing for Fangoria. This is a dream come true as I’ve been a huge fan of theirs since the ’80s! I have two articles live on their website right now that are linked below. You do have to sign up to read them, but it’s free and you’re allowed 3 articles a month with the subscription!
