Bugger, bugger, bugger!

………………………………..I hurt my neck.


Not sure HOW I did it this time, but the sizzling dazzling pain woke me up at about 4 am and again at 5-ish and then finally at 7. Work was less than impressed with my sick day. My chiropractor — GOD BLESS HIM, YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS MAN, HE’S A MIRACLE WORKER (Dr. Mark Symchych, Dauphin) — fixed me up pretty good, but I think it’s gone out again. Something sounds crunchy when I turn my head.

So let’s not be turning our head, then, silly girl — right?


Sorry. I’ve taken a muscle relaxant and am not making a great deal of sense right now, I know.

In other news, mid-term senior practicum evaluation went well-ish, good-ish, although I do have a few concerns….there is always room for improvement, and I seem to know my limitations…

Spoke with my course advisor. Have extended my practicum by 4 days so that I can make up for this injury sick time…Oh well. Four days isn’t THAT bad of a stretch….although admittedly, a single night on the ward can seem to take FOREVER at times…

I have to try to find a comfortable position in bed: this is madness, it really is.

I wonder if this is anything like what people with chronic pain, say as in fibromyalgia, feel like (although I imagine their pain would be excruciating).

There is an upside to this. Dr. S said no exercising for a while. That means no masochistic forcing myself to the gym for the grueling time on the treadmill 🙂

Sincere regards,

Amanda M. Holt
