This feels like the longest. week. EVAR.
I've been busy, of course, but this is one of those times where busy doesn' t make the time pass. Too busy to even go grocery shopping.
BUT. I did go and see a chiropractor last week about my shoulder, and saw him again yesterday. Luckily, he does not seem to care that I've already hit my out-of-pocket max with my insurance (danged chest pains!) and we decided on a treatment program.
This whole mess seems to be centered in my neck. I laughed when he put the x-ray film on the light box - I have ZERO curve in my neck - and joked about having very straight posture.
Turns out you can't fake a straight spine - it's abnormal. :( Ironically, it's likely due to my sitting up very straight in a chair, but looking DOWN at my monitor - try it and you'll see what I mean. Your chin tucks toward your chest and your neck muscles (and spine flatten and lengthen).
I got my neck cracked good, and my torso bear-hugged, and put on the electro-shock machine for a bit.
Felt great - until I went to bed. Then I was EN FUEGO! MALO! NO BUENO! My body felt like there were flames shooting all through my nervous system. My calves were cramping, my shoulders twitching. Awful! :((((((
Now I have the sleepies big-time.
ANYWAY. Scored tickets to see one of my favorite bands in Cleveland this weekend and will likely see dear friends as well. Yays. (Why I work so much - I can get tickets to a sold-out show and take off for a weekend trip without worrying about whether or not I can afford it. Also, having 3 jobs prevents me from having the time to spend money!)
What are you planning for the weekend??
