A couple of years ago, with the holiday season approaching, I began to feel that I should be in better physical shape. One evening, I decided to do some exercises. As I did sit-ups, I felt pain in my lower back, but kept going anyway. Soon, I could hardly move, and even getting comfortable enough to sleep that night was impossible. I figured that the pain would subside, but, the next day, it was severe and seemed to get worse every hour.

This was very disturbing to me because I had a full agenda that coming week—mainly Halloween activities with my children, including dressing up in my kangaroo costume and attending holiday get-togethers. Our family had been looking forward to these special events.
