I was racking some RK05 drives on my PDP-11 and was picking up 11/34 and
11/35 CPU BA11 boxes and carrying them from the floor or rack to my work
bench. After doing this off and on for a couple of days on a weekend, my
back hurt all during the week and was stiff. Then we had a big software
delivery at work and I sat slouching in my chair at my office working for
16 hours straight on the last Friday in October. The next day I could not
get out of bed and had excruciating pain in my lower back and my right leg.
I was in bed for 3 weeks due to a bulging disk in the same area where some
mild arthritis was located and it had inflamed the nerve roots of my
sciatic nerve. Now I recruit my 21 year old son to lift anything over
100 pounds.
