cuaca di luar sana sekadar bersahaja....tiada berangin...dan tiada juga sinar matahari yang terik. Sekadar cerah dan terang... hujan yang datang menjengah di akhir tahun 2005 ni seakan mengundang banjir yang hebat, tapi alhamdulilah... bencananya tidaklah sehebat tahun2 yang lebik teruk sebelum ini. aku kini sedang ralit dibuai lagu-lagu syahdu... yang saban hari menemani halwa telingaku sejak akhir-akhir ini. mungkin kerana keadaan... mungkin juga kerana perasaan... mungkin juga kerana sesuatu ayat yang menjengah diri aku baru-baru ini.... dan mungkin juga kerana mengisi kesunyian pendengaran.... hmm... "mungkin saja rasa itu telah pergi..."
"Hati terluka bila ku sedar
Kau khianati cinta
Jiwa meronta bila ternyata
Kau menduakan cinta
Sungguh ku tak menyangka
Begini di akhirnya
Kau tinggalkan ku hati terluka"....
begitulah bunyi bait-bait lirik yang berkumandang ditelingaku sekarang ini. Berhari-hari juga aku mencari lagu ini dengan kawanku, faie... muziknya dan liriknya seperti menyentuh hati ini. banyak lagi lagu-lagu yang sering menemani aku sejak akhir-akhir ini... ada beberapa kawan aku bertanya, kenapa mesti mendengar lagu-lagu berunsur kecewa begini?...hmm.. aku tiada jawapan yang begitu pasti untuk jelaskan keadaan sebenar... tapi lagu-lagu ini seperti memahami perasaan aku walaupun bukanlah kesemuanya berkisar tentang hidupku sendiri... walau apapun tafsirannya, lagu-lagu ini tetap setia diperdengaran ku.... temani aku di kala hati ini seperti dilanda gundah gulana...
hahahaha....i'm a bit suprised and feeling so so funny when i try to read the word back... suzana dah pening laaa kotss... but to tell u the truth batikchantingss...it's a very tough moment when i try to generate the word... sort of need to think, a bit of termenung to find the suitable wordss... it's hard probably becos i'm trying to use a correct word while omitting my feveret alphabet "ssss".... and also making sure that the word is correctly being spelled and written....
oklaa batikchanting...just break for a few minutes to jot something here... c u sooooonss....

Dear batikchantingss…I’m at the office now but just cannot concentrate to the given task as my back is aching quite badly today… :( … below are some information that I browsed just now for my own reference…and some of them are directly attached to my case…. risau gak niss…
Back pain is an all-too-familiar problem that can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that leaves you incapacitated. It can come on suddenly – from an accident, a fall, or lifting something too heavy – or it can develop slowly, perhaps as the result of age-related changes to the spine. Regardless of how it happens or how it feels, you know it when you have it. And chances are, if you don’t have it now, you will eventually.
How Common Is It?
At some point, back pain affects an estimated 8 out of 10 people. It is one of our society’s most common medical problems. (uish!!...ramai tuu...8 out of 10...and i'm one of the 8 tu...isk..isk...)
Age: The first attack of low back pain typically occurs between the ages of 30 and 40. Back pain becomes more common with age. (hmm…I’m entering this range of age…isk…)
Fitness level: Back pain is more common among people who are not physically fit. (this part pon, I should take note seriously…sbb mmg myself x fit ponss...) Weak back and abdominal muscles may not properly support the spine. “Weekend warriors” – people who go out and exercise a lot after being inactive all week – are more likely to suffer painful back injuries than people who make moderate physical activity a daily habit. Studies show that low-impact aerobic exercise is good for the discs that cushion the vertebrae, the individual bones that make up the spine.
Diet: A diet high in calories and fat, combined with an inactive lifestyle, can lead to obesity, which can put stress on the back.
Heredity: Some causes of back pain, including disc disease, may have a genetic component.
Race: Race can be a factor in back problems. African American women, for example, are two to three times more likely than white women to develop spondylolisthesis, a condition in which a vertebra of the lower spine – also called the lumbar spine – slips out of place.
The presence of other diseases: Many diseases can cause or contribute to back pain. These include various forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, and cancers elsewhere in the body that may spread to the spine.
Occupational risk factors: Having a job that requires heavy lifting, pushing, or pulling, particularly when this involves twisting or vibrating the spine, can lead to injury and back pain. An inactive job or a desk job may also lead to or contribute to pain, especially if you have poor posture or sit all day in an uncomfortable chair. (yeaaa….i guess this is the MAIN reason of my back pain problem…)
Cigarette smoking: Although smoking may not directly cause back pain, it increases your risk of developing low back pain and low back pain with sciatica. (Sciatica is back pain that radiates to the hip and/or leg due to pressure on a nerve.) For example, smoking may lead to pain by blocking your body’s ability to deliver nutrients to the discs of the lower back. Or, repeated coughing due to heavy smoking may cause back pain. It is also possible that smokers are just less physically fit or less healthy than nonsmokers, which increases the likelihood that they will develop back pain. Furthermore, smoking can slow healing, prolonging pain for people who have had back injuries, back surgery, or broken bones.
What Are the Causes of Back Pain?
It is important to understand that back pain is a symptom of a medical condition, not a diagnosis itself. Medical problems that can cause back pain include the following:
Mechanical problems: A mechanical problem is a problem with the way your spine moves or the way you feel when you move your spine in certain ways. Perhaps the most common mechanical cause of back pain is a condition called intervertebral disc degeneration, which simply means that the discs located between the vertebrae of the spine are breaking down with age. (huh...my disc ni degenerate kerss....aiyark!!...) As they deteriorate, they lose their cushioning ability. This problem can lead to pain if the back is stressed. Other mechanical causes of back pain include spasms, muscle tension, and ruptured discs, which are also called herniated discs.
Injuries: Spine injuries such as sprains and fractures can cause either short-lived or chronic pain. Sprains are tears in the ligaments that support the spine, and they can occur from twisting or lifting improperly. Fractured vertebrae are often the result of osteoporosis, a condition that causes weak, porous bones. Less commonly, back pain may be caused by more severe injuries that result from accidents and falls. (hmm...this part, not sure sgt....but i think, myslef x penah jatuss ke...or having any serious exsiden pon...)
Acquired conditions and diseases: Many medical problems can cause or contribute to back pain. They include scoliosis, which causes curvature of the spine and does not usually cause pain until mid-life; spondylolisthesis; various forms of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis; and spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column that puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. While osteoporosis itself is not painful, it can lead to painful fractures of the vertebrae. Other causes of back pain include pregnancy; kidney stones or infections; endometriosis, which is the buildup of uterine tissue in places outside the uterus; and fibromyalgia, which causes fatigue and widespread muscle pain.
Infections and tumors: Although they are not common causes of back pain, infections can cause pain when they involve the vertebrae, a condition called osteomyelitis, or when they involve the discs that cushion the vertebrae, which is called discitis. Tumors, too, are relatively rare causes of back pain. Occasionally, tumors begin in the back, but more often they appear in the back as a result of cancer that has spread from elsewhere in the body. (ada probabilities ngan tumorss...erkk...risaunyee...:(...)
Although the causes of back pain are usually physical, it is important to know that emotional stress can play a role in how severe pain is and how long it lasts. Stress can affect the body in many ways, including causing back muscles to become tense and painful.
Can Back Pain Be Prevented?
One of the best things you can do to prevent back pain is to exercise regularly and keep your back muscles strong. Exercises that increase balance and strength can decrease your risk of falling and injuring your back or breaking bones. Exercises such as Tai Chi and yoga – or any weight-bearing exercise that challenges your balance – are good ones to try.
Eating a healthy diet also is important. For one thing, eating to maintain a healthy weight – or to lose weight, if you are overweight – helps you avoid putting unnecessary and injury-causing stress and strain on your back. To keep your spine strong, as with all bones, you need to get enough calcium and vitamin D every day. These nutrients help prevent osteoporosis, which is responsible for a lot of the bone fractures that lead to back pain. Calcium is found in dairy products; green, leafy vegetables; and fortified products, like orange juice. Your skin makes vitamin D when you are in the sun. If you are not outside much, you can obtain vitamin D from your diet: almost all milk and some other foods are fortified with this nutrient. Most adults don’t get enough calcium and vitamin D, so talk to your doctor about how much you need per day, and consider taking a nutritional supplement or a multivitamin. (the problem here is....myself x suka minum susu laa plaks...)
Practicing good posture, supporting your back properly, and avoiding heavy lifting when you can may all help you prevent injury. If you do lift something heavy, keep your back straight. Don’t bend over the item; instead, lift it by putting the stress on your legs and hips.
I do always try to ensure that i'm sitting in a good posture for the sake of my ngosngess back niss...tp, ntahlaa...my chair kat sekilau tu pon daaa bess...but the pain is still attacking me regularly... hmm...i probably need to fit up my body laaa kotss...tp ujung minggu cam malas plakss nak activate myself...:D
