On pins and needles
Tuesday, April 23, 2013
But that is what you think of when you hit a nerve. The old funny bone, and that odd tingly pins and needles sensation that runs up and down your arm even to your hand.
Nerves are funny things, in a not so funny way.
Though they can tingle. burn even. vibrate. feel funny. pins and needles from tickle light sensations to downright aggravating. Make you wriggle, writhe, squirm in discomfort. That's me alright. Nothing like tickles and fun.
So I let it all lie low yesterday, in hopes today would be better. I felt the low back yelling at me as soon as I woke up. At least it let me sleep. Then, I went on my side, and I felt a nerve get pinched near my ribs, in a place I don't ever hurt. I ever so carefully got myself out of the compromising position. Washed my hair (carefully). Got dressed. Went to put on my sweat shirt, and oh clam cadiddlehoppers there went that stupid nincompoop nerve in the left shoulder blade having to do with my neck. Move ever so slowly. Yell even.
eat light breakfast. Read scripture for reinforcement - found one I can sing... Ye let none that wait, on thee be afraid...
Go to computer. quickly log in. check mail. post a quick little blog about it, and silently slip away to go rest it up. Again.
I did two minutes of gentle exercise this morning without compromising my low back. Go me.
Heck. one minute at a time works.
Count me in.
