WAYS I'VE HURT MY BACK, HOW OLD I WAS, AND HOW OLD I FELT

  1. 15- Falling down way too many times while ice skating. I could barely carry my backpack for month.
    Age felt: 40
  2. 22- I stood up too fast while performing in Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind. I was limping for a week.
    Age felt: 80
  3. Pretty much once every year between age 18 and 24- Trying to lift too much weight at the gym. Was usually fine within a couple of days.
    Age felt: 20-25. This is a pretty normal injury and made total sense.
  4. 25- Picked up my backpack weird. Spent the day limping around my house.
    Age felt: 79. Because that's still not as bad as standing up too fast.
