A little backstory...

My ex has had problems with his back since I met him 15 years ago. Originally, it wasn't too bad, but did start to get worse over the years and as he got older - still, it didn't prevent from doing much "normal" day to day stuff, except here and there when it was flaring up.

Well, he got hurt working at his last job, and they put him on disability. He was going to physical therapy but it did not seem to be helping much. I did see him briefly not too long ago, and he looked terrible. He was kind of shuffling around, and took a long time to sit/get up. I know him well enough to believe that he was in real pain and I don't think he was faking it. He said he really can't do much of anything because he is pain pretty much all the time now - he can no longer participate in the sports he played and it even hurts when he has to pick up/carry OC.

Poor baby...anyway, I was not really surprised seeing as how I had watched it progressing. Whatever.

However, as I sit here on this lovely Sunday morning, I just had a thought that never even occurred to me before... his back issues must have really put a damper on his sex life. I couldn't imagine sex being enjoyable when you're in that kind of pain. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...

Poor muffin, can't pick up the toddler without shooting pains!

I feel sorry for the kid who has to put up with a dad like that.

I feel sorry for OC, too, for lots of reasons... life will be an uphill battle for her with two complete idiot assholes for parents. Hopefully when she's old enough, she will realize they are toxic...
