Dear Cadence and/or Upgrade,
Later this morning I see the neurosurgeon about my back. I expect that he will send me for your typical therapy, stuff like ultrasound, "core" exercises, etc. (I suppose there's a small chance the surgery option will be explored tentatively, but probably not). Anyway, I want to lie and tell him that back massages are the only thing that has helped me in the past, and see if I can somehow get set up with those. I'm probably dreaming, but it's a nice dream. Anyway, is it a sin to lie in such a scenario?
Awaiting your answer,
EDIT--PS--I leave for my appointment in about 5 1/2 hours... the clock is ticking!
