Although I don’t suffer from back problems like Chuck, my job as a cartoonist definitely involves too much sitting! Either I’m sitting hunched over my drawing table or slouched in front of my computer. But as it turns out, the biggest issue is not my back, but my shoulder and not the pen, but the mouse. I guess I’m in good company, because a lot of jobs have the same conditions nowadays. As much as that’s an issue, it sure beats the physical effects of working the fields or factories in the old days, or even now.
A compounding factor is that I am entering an age where one is not just “in good shape” anymore, but in good shape “for one’s age”, haha! Recently I stumbled across a beach photo from 20 years ago. I am definitely not in THAT shape anymore… Anyway, no reason to complain. Adapt and overcome! 🙂
