I'm in a lot of pain right now, and needed to vent... Last week, I moved a desk from one end of my office to the other. A couple guys in the office offered to help, but I refused because people assume that because I am "small", I am not strong enough. And now, I completely wish that I was more humble and accepted help. When I woke up yesterday, my back ached a lot - to the point where I couldn't move. I basically laid in bed all day yesterday (had my boyfriend prop the computer so that I could post on the forum ). I couldn't miss work today because of our yearly financial audit, so I am now wearing a back brace today. I should have admitted defeat to begin with.
