Can't Sit: Living with a Sitting Disability
Everyone sits. But what happens when even that simple action is enough to cause severe back pain?
Despite the simplistic name, getting diagnosed with a sitting disability means your life is about to get much, much more complicated. When every bend and turn means suffering, even the most ordinary of events ends up a challenge. Long car, train, and plane rides are excruciating. Even sitting a table for the length of a meal is unthinkable. Forget about going to the movies unless you plan to stand in the back. And at the office, while everyone else relaxes at their desks, you’re forced to remain upright in your cubicle for eight long hours.
