Bleah. I can definitely see how chronic back-pain can fuel addiction. If somebody dangled a handful of Limbaugh-pills in front of me right now, I'd probably eat 'em like Tic Tacs.
On another note, I got mentioned on gameproducer.net. I just hope he doesn't decide to follow through on that whole pony thing. Our neighbors raise ponies, so they're readily available. I don't think it'll be easy to kidnap one, though.
Especially with lower back pain.
