After the encouraging news I received from the previous day's posting about not being all that evil, I have decided to persue a more virtuous life. In ridding the evil from my home, I found this thoroughly vile lot of 16 H.P. Lovecraft books and I am disposing of them on ebay.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
