To potentially give myself WHIPLASH by falling while walking up a hill. I know, I know…it’s admirable, I’m sure if we made it an Olympic sport I would score high on both choreography and technicality. I can tell you’re all green with envy, LOL! Yeah, not only can I feel like a klutz, but seriously, falling while going uphill?!
OMG…so, I went to the Chiropractor and Doctor today to figure out why in the heck my neck won’t respond to ice, prescribed muscle relaxer, hand held massager, stretching, Tiger Balm, etc. I think I’ve done everything BUT drag out the jack hammer. The Chiropractor found I was really, really out of alignment, so that got all fixed and I go back tomorrow morning for another checkup.
Before the Doctor came in I joked with the nurse that I’m feeling WAY too much like Humpty Dumpty, she laughed!
The Doctor took x-rays because I’m fearful I did more damage to my already compromised cervical discs, he said it’s a good chance this is whiplash…I know…you should have seen my expression! There did not appear to be new damage, but this is the reason why nothing is working, he said I need to rest and be patient. I laughed and told him I was going to be released from Physical Therapy one week from today and now I don’t know if that’s going to happen. He said he would write a referral if one was needed.
Oh, and since I’m in a wild hair kind of mood I have to tell you what happened at the Doctor’s office. The Doctor told me Derek, a tall man I’d met before, would be coming in to give me a shot of anti-inflammatory meds I’d agreed to. So I waited and waited and waited.
Finally a woman comes in with a syringe and Band-Aid and tells me I need to have the shot in my hindquarters [my word, not hers].
I told her she didn’t look at all like Derek and she replied, “Oh that’s because he’s a little behind.” I laughed at the pun she didn’t know she’d made and she laughed too. I thought it was hilarious! At least he’s not a big one. LOL!
You know it’s a good day when you find humor in the end…LOL! :) Tee hee hee
