A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

March 24, 2006


I swear I try to do things other than complain on this blog. I haven't mentioned all the neck and shoulder pain I've been experiencing for the last few days. I don't know what caused it but it's been getting tighter and tighter. Finally last night it seized up so badly I could barely move. I was in so much pain that I couldn't get into bed so I sat on a chair next to the bed and cried. I was kind of laughing while I was crying because I couldn't believe how pathetic I was. I managed to get into bed and sleep on and off while wincing and whimpering. I'm sure Wes had a great night. This morning at my son's school another mom gave me the number of her chiropractor. I've never been to a chiropractor and wasn't sure if it was for me. I called my own doctor's office and was told I could be seen at the Acute Care Clinic on Monday. I explained the whole hurts-so-bad-I-cried-all-night situation and she suggested I go the emergency room. I didn't feel hopeful that they would do much for me there other than make me wait a really long time and give me some good drugs. So I went with Plan B. The chiropractic experience was definitely a little more touchy-feely, both figuratively and literally, than I usually care for but I could move my neck with tearing up by the time I left. I'm going back for another "adjustment" this afternoon.

I'm knitting away on the second Durrow sleeve. I've also picked up some fixin's for a light tent. I'll experiment a bit this weekend with it.
