I haven’t been here in a while….

My little brother passed away. It was quite a shock and well a great example of why we shouldn’t treat ourselves.
My brother assumed that he had sciatica. He would ask friends and the would confirm that yes the pain runs from your back and down your legs.
If it was a woman, and they had low back pain running down their legs, one my ask about a possible kidney problem. However, that is not what one thinks with a man.
Well meaning friends suggested alleve, heat, or ice.
Unfortunately, what he thought was a case of a stomach bug and sciatic pain, was his liver and then his kidneys failing.
My brother, my friend rest in peace.
