    They couldn't read signs for the deaf, was that their excuse? I thought frantic hand-waving was a universal language.

    One thing at a time maybe? Don't think about everything. Find the doctor first. You'll probably feel better once that's settled.

    With a broken back were you completely inactive? In bed most of the time?

    Age is probably a factor as well. I was in my early twenties, close to Scoliatic's age.
