The season changed from summer to autumn, and my backache has come back again. A few days ago, I carried heavy baggage and it was the trigger of this backache. When I carried it, I didn't have any kind of pain in my back except for tire, however the feeling of tire changed gradually into pain. This morning it was too painful to get out of bed. I'm very afraid that the nightmare of last year comes back again. As I am living alone in a foreign country, it is critical if I can't get up and walk around. This afternoon, I went to see a shiatsu therapist in Yaletown and took an hour treatment. Although I told him that I have terrible pain in my back, he massaged mainly my legs. I guess he was afraid of getting my back worse, but I wasn't satisfied with his treatment. I'm now thinking about seeing the same acupuncturist who treated me last year. My backache repeats itself just like history. I hope to say good by to it forever.
