A Pain Down the Left Bum

Sorry, too much information? But what a way to start the Year of the Tiger! The weather has been absolutely Gross: rain, rain and more rain, and that coupled with the dropping temperature, it spells arthritis, especially for those of us who are over 40 and over the hill ... I have this "injury" down my left lower back (around the buttocks area) some years ago ... I put injury in " " because I never knew what actually caused it and whether it was an injury but for several months, I couldn't walk without having to crouch (very mainland) every 10 steps to relieve the intense pain. The strange thing was,  I kinda just woke up one day with it. I went to an acupuncturist, chiropractor, Shaolin "bone pusher" etc and nothing worked. Then one day, I went on this junk trip and after I swan to the shore (in breast stroke), I got to my feet and I felt ... just fine. The pain just disappeared. But whenever the weather gets damp and cold, I can feel the pain again - just a tinge. I can also feel it in some yoga poses (deep twists).

Hmm, my lai see tally appears equally miserable, THREE so far! Mind you, as a single person (over 40 and over the hill), it is getting highly embarrassing to receive these "red pockets", especially from colleagues who are much younger but married, because I should be the one giving them out(!) The ultimate question is: why are you STILL single? In other words, why are you A FREAK? 

 Chinese New Year, what a pain in the ass...
