Spinal Disc Herniation, commonly known as "slipped disc", is a medical condition that has been with me for the past 15 years. Following a basketball injury in high school, one of the soft discs between two of my spine sections slipped out and presses a nerve on the back, resulting in severe pain in the lower back and my right leg. Once in a while, it nudges and reminds me that it's not gonna ever go away.

So, here is to a life-long relationship. Characters here read: yao tu... which literally means "lower back extrusion", a common name for the condition in Chinese.
