    I also engage in gardening, hiking, snowshoeing, knitting, sewing, reading. I used to be much more active with swimming, aerobics, etc when I was much younger.

    I have had back issues for 40 years, that manifested when I was building a log home with my ex, but the recent issue some 6+ months ago was the most severe.
