I'm alive! Spent yesterday in bed, just resting. My back is starting to feel more normal now. Looks like I have some bruising but at least I can move with minimal pain!
Had a drive around the outskirts of the city, then stepped out of my comfort zone and got into a social situation by myself. Ended up playing Ping Pong with a nice fella named Leroy. I'm liking this 'new me'.
