I was a reporter/photographer at a TV station in West Virginia almost 25 years ago. That means I not only reported the stories, I also shot all of the video for the piece.
One Sunday morning, as I was lifting a camera case into the news car, I felt a sharp twinge in my back. It hurt, a lot. However, I needed to get to the story so I kept going. I covered that story and a couple others. I came back to the station, wrote the newscast, anchored the show, and went home. I took some ibuprofen along the way, but I made it through.
