    Has anyone raised their pool table because of back pain?

    I'm at a point of not being able to play, due to not being able to get low enough to the cue or stay down on the shot.

    AZB members are awesome!!!

    I'll keep this short. Not long ago I made a thread while in a very, very bad state. I was having what I consider "mind bending pain". The drugs seemed to crush me mentally and all the while, the physical pain seemed to have it's way and drive me closer and closer to a very dark place. I've...

    Please read this thread.

    These are facts as far as I'm concerned: I haven't been to church but a handful of times in a decade. I almost never bring up religion or anything to do with it unless myself or someone I love is in a situation that scares me. I'm in a situation right now and I'm feeling guilty about asking...
