I am finally at a point where I can sit at a computer and type for a decent amount of time. It seems that during my sleep the other night I folded my arm BEHIND MY HEAD. It would also seem that your muscles in your neck and upper back do not appreciate this amazing feat of limberness (is that a word?), and protest. Those muscles will protest for DAYS on end over this.
Today, I finally sucked it up and went to Wal-Mart to try and buy something to fix this issue. I have been taking muscle relaxers and pain killers for days, and while it helped, the problem was NOT going away. I decided that Icey Hot and a heating pad was going to be the only way to solve this problem, but alas I was wrong.
I found something better.
It’s a mud or clay pack. I don’t remember what it was called, only that it was like $10.00. You can stick it in the freezer OR put it in the microwave. It’s a two for one kind of deal, and let me tell you, I am singing it’s praises. For the first time in days I can turn my head to the left, almost like normal.
I keep thinking about future periods, back aches, and other muscle nonsense that are going to be demolished by this $10.00 item. I am going to nuke this sucker tonight and put it on the spot on my shoulder blade that I cannot get it on while sitting up, and hopefully tomorrow I will be pain free and singing a happy tune when I wake up.
I am still working on the last of the photos from the Scottish Festival. If I don’t get them up tonight, I will hopefully be able to do it tomorrow! Hope all is well with the rest of the Xanga world!
