pain in the neck

So. I hurt my neck yesterday somehow in some strange twisting and turning and now I can't turn my head. I'm home today, alone and yes blessedly alone lying flat on the couch, alone and in pain. The sun in shining and I'm watching the neighborly happenings that I usually miss.

It's not whining exactly, more of a checking in and saying what's what.

me too! i was trying to get out of my jacket in my friend's fancy car and tweaked my neck. i managed to borrow her beautiful scarf (green silk, that her daughter bought her in vietnam) for the day but it is stiff. very gentle hugs to you.

Feel better, friend. Enjoy the neighborhood happenings and the chance to get some rest.

I hate it when that happens. Heat helps - those stick-on therma-something things are great.

I did that yesterday.
Laid on the couch in the sun and kept throwing ping pong balls across the room to keep Monkey entertained.
uhhh yeah. shhh....

but I didn't hurt my neck.
I was just being lazy.
:)

hope you feel better soon, dude.

I'd make you a killer mojito if I was nearby.

I hear alcohol helps....everything.

Feel better!

Hope you feel better. Neck pain sucks.

The Baby asked me very kindly today if "Mama need a backrub, maybe?". I'll send her to your place.

Mad said...

Sounds like as good as an excuse as any to get soused. I recommend vodka.

Seriously, take care of yourself.

Feel better! I hope it is not the begining of the flu. I started with some wierd aches. Get some rest, it sounds like you are on the move a lot!! Try to make the most of it, read, watch a good DVD, take some good pain medicine and try to get some rest.

I am just so happy that I have today and Monday off, so I don't have to miss work. I had to call Child Protective on Thursday, on a very abusive step-dad, and I want to be there when the kids return to school. I have been thinking about them all day. I hope CP does its job, and protects these innocent, beautiful children.

Take care of yourself.

I'm very hung up in trying to picture how you typed.

Crap on the back. I hope it ends up providing a good respite. Feel better!

I hope you'll feel better soon, and get some well-deserved rest.

Also thank you for checking in.

Oi, I hope you see some amazing community interaction to make you forget about the neck for a while.

Huuuuuge bearhug. Virtual so your neck will not feel a thing other than the lurve.

Sending healing vibes. I've done that several times before and it's no picnic.

Janet said...

I seem to do that more and more often, lately.

Hope you're feeling a little more mobile today.

QT said...

Oh honey - if I were there, I would put compresses on your neck and regale you with stories of the past two weeks.

Feel better soon, chica.

nomotherearth said...

Well, this post was Friday, so I hope you feel better by now...? At least you got some alone time - but what a way to get it! Feel better soon.

Hopefully you're feeling better by now... But I'm happy for you that you got some alone time to recuperate. That makes a difference...
