and for the umpteenth time...
Sunday, January 01, 2006  
samuelmai asked a really good nobrainer question "so what have you achieved this holiday"
sleep, lots of sleep. ate, lots of food. caught up, with lots of people.
school is gonna start on tuesday. head and neck block. it's gonna be a pain in the neck

speaking of pain, my lower back pain is getting worse.
good thing is that i can exclude spinal problems (to be exact, no discs no bone involvement)
i just need a good chair and a new mattress
and that's what i got for my bday

i don't know what's up with chinese people, we just have unquestioned faith in hard bed for kids. and i can tell you that i hated it when i was small. not only that the country has been poor for 300 years, it's also believed that hard mattresses are supposed prevent "back problems". scoliosis yeah, but abnormal (exaggerated, for asians) lordosis can be just as bad. hard mattresses doesn't support your back at all (well it does and it doesn't), it exerts pressure on ur hip and ur scalpulae, and it's not painless. in some cases, it might force your lumbar curvature to be too convex when supine. sleeping sideways is better, given that your shoulders are not that wide, which might explain why chinese tend to sleep sideways for life.
the experience in western countries is completely different. kids tend to have more scoliosis and diminished lordosis. and that is what happens when ur mattresses are too soft. if they go see a doc, they'll just be told to sleep on hard surface. in chinese style.
what's going on with me is that i have definitely grown and gained quite a bit weight; as reflected by the staggering number of pillows I have to use (shoulders). it's up to the breakpoint that my lower back pain don't resolve anymore. blame the lab stools and long computer hours. blame the sports. bed rest right? even so,i wake up with back pain each and every morning, so i'm gonna replace my mattress and my puter chair now.

my new year's resolution is as clear as a 10 megapixel on a carl zeiss; das ist ich shall get mein back rrrrright!!
