Did you know that if your neck muscles are in SEVERE pain then your life is going to be pretty craptastic until they are all better again?!
I told you about yesterday and how I woke up and was not able to move at all! And it didn’t get any better….
I had several people tell me that I needed to go to a massage therapist (Thank you Jessica & Stephanie.) I would have never thought of that had they not said anything. I happened to have a gift card to a place here in town. I hobbled my way to the car,
cried, shrieked, wept tears of sheer pain winced my way into the car, and drove over there.
I cried while trying to get on the table, I cried when the massage therapist touched me, & I knew it was bad when she said, “Oh my goodness. I have never had a client with muscles this bad or in this much pain. You need some medical help!” Awesome, thumbs up, good to hear. She told me that my back muscles were in such bad shape from carrying around my 25 lb giant child that they had thrown my neck into crisis.
After an hour in there with her I could slightly move my head to the right, still couldn’t move it the left, & could sort of get of the table with some (not a lot) dignity.
Y’all, I played two college sports, have been a runner my entire life, survived 41 hours of epidural free labor (the no epidural thing was not my choice) & I have NEVER, EVER been in this much pain before!
And to cap off the day, my electricity went out—which I’ll give another thumbs up to or maybe just my middle finger!
But the amazing part of the day was my husband! All I had to do was ask him to stay home & he handled everything–all the feeding, all the diaper changing, stroller pushing, nap traning, bathing, playing, etc with Lboy. Does that make him a Domesticated Diva? 🙂
Under construction! Don’t judge the mess!
