    Very much so. And constantly travelling long haul for work and out at parties, dinners, events most evenings. Doesn't seem to get tired.

    I used to be a side sleeper. In 1978 I fractured my spine and had to lie on my back for 5 weeks. Since then I have had no trouble sleeping on my back:)

    Don't break your back to learn back sleeping It's not worth it I reckon.

    How is your back now Ian? If you don't mind me asking on a public forum. I hope you're as recovered as possible.

    Pretty much OK. I get some lower back pain if I am not careful with my posture. I need to keep my back straight when lifting things. A few other very minor problems. As I have had it for most of my life, it just seems normal now. The only thing I can't do is jump off anything, even a three or four feet high. It doesn't hurt, but I have a very stiff back for a few days afterwards.

    That's good I reckon considering. You know what limitations it has set on you but you haven't let it stop you. It's just become second nature to protect your back I guess.
