Pain in the A**

I don't know if you have ever had the unfortunate pleasure to experience a broken coccyx (tail bone), but let me just tell is HELL! I first broke my tail bone in high school, then again about 6 months ago. I did not go for an x-ray at the time of re-injury, but due to 6 months + of unbearable pain, I finally decided to have the x-ray completed today while at work. The whole experience was a disaster from beginning to end (no pun intended). When I went in for the x-ray, the nice tech told me I would have to pull my pants down to my knees. Of course, I was wearing....well lets just say not exactly appropriate underwear for the situation. She did lay towels down on the table, then I covered with another, but I just kept thinking about how many bodies had been on the table before me. I felt like wiping myself down with a Clorox wipe. After the x-ray, I returned my pants to the appropriate position only to notice that the white towels had completely covered my black dress pants with white lint. I had to walk in front of a lobby full of people with all this sh** all over my clothes. Everyone looked at me like I was a fool. Thank goodness we have a community lint roller in our office so I didn't have to finish my work day looking like a NUT. Of course, my coccyx is completely broken, leaving me to wonder if it will ever heal. Really, nothing can be done...and I really don't want to sit on a donut cushion in I guess I will just continue to bitch and complain about the pain in my a** for another 6 months.


  1. Oh no!! When I was in high school we went to family camp and while we were all sleeping my little sister stood up on the top bunk in our cabin and cannon balled onto the cement floor below in her sleep, poor girl! I hope you feel better soon :)
