This is the research diary of researcher Lisbeth Klastrup, since february 2001 sharing her thoughts on life, universe, persistent online worlds, games, interactive stories and internet oddities with you on the www.

I am currently on leave from the IT University of Copenhagen, and from aug. 2006 - aug. 2007 working as Associate Research Professor at the Center for Design Research Copenhagen, an independant center situated at the School of Architecture. During this year, I will be working on a book about the development of aesthetics, design and interaction on the WWW, together with colleague Ida Engholm.

My blog often reflects how busy I am in general, so posting may be pretty irregular, as well as my potential response to comments. But I read them!

On the bench again
This week I gave up. I got on the phone and called my doctor and asked for a referral to a physioterapist. And then I made an appointment with the man who did a good job in helping me cure the worst effects of RSI last year this time. This year, instead of feeling pain in my arms and shoulders, I suffer from a jabbing (?), uneasy pain which starts in the lower back and works its way all down to my right foot. Some refer to this as sciatia (ischias). It hurts when I sit, when I get up from a chair or a bed, when I bike or bend my back. And worst of all, it hurts every time I turn in bed at night, so I constantly wake up, which leaves me rather unrested in the mornings :(.

In my case, according to the physioterapist, the pains are an effect of an irritiated disc in my spine. At the moment, there is not much to do but eat painkillers (!), lay flat on my stomach a couple a times a day and sit erect. I really hope that all good things come to those who wait...and that he (the physioguy) can do something more (anything, whatever) next time we meet.

PS! I've hardly had any problems with arms, shoulder and back after I got a flexible desk at work which allows me to shift between standing and sitting down when I work. Highly recommendable.
