Sore about a sore neck set back

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Either in my sleep on Sunday, or early, early Monday morning I did something to my neck. The pain was so bad, that I threw up. I made my way to the couch and crying, I asked my fiancé "permission" to call in to work. I hate calling in and even though I'm almost 30, I still ask my mom or Chris if my ailment justifies missing work or not.

This did - I passed out once, and crumbled to my knees in agony several times as I attempted to find a safe angle on which I could do simple things like watch tv and drink tea. I've never experience anything quite like it.

Now, with a cream and a tablet for the pain, I'm starting to notice an improvement in my range of motion. It's hard though, with work and even yoga being hard to manage, how am I supposed to lose weight? I can cut back on my calories a wee bit, and I can walk on the treadmill etc, but I think this will be a huge test of will.

Give me strength.

    wishing you the best! I was out of commission for 4 months due to a neck sprain that I received in a car accident. I was crushed in a vehicle rollover. I know exactly what you mean about the pain! try slow neck rolls to work it out! good luck!!
