You know you are getting old when you pull a muscle and it’s not so easy to shake it off. For the past several days I’ve been dealing with a pain in my neck (no it’s not my son for once) and it’s caused a tingling sensation in my shoulder. Through the years I’ve pulled my fair share of muscles, especially when I was in the U.S. Army, but nothing compares to when you cannot turn your head because the pain is well…horrible. I believe I slept on it wrong, which sucks even worse.
I mean how do you know when your asleep that your sleeping the wrong way and you will wake up in pain? I’m feeling much better today and can move my neck without the pain, but I still feel it a little in my shoulder. I’ve taken some medication, but I am the type of person who likes to try and manage pain without any help. I don’t know why, but I can never remember to take medicine the way I should even when it’s prescribed.
So for now I plan on relaxing, watching a movie with a friend and enjoying a nice dinner with a glass of wine. Unless there are any other suggestions I guess I will “labor” through the holiday and in the next few days I will hopefully feel better.
