All day long I kept telling myself, ďThis isnít as bad as last time.Ē And then a twinge of pain would sear through my neck and upper back, and Iíd say, ďThis is really bad. Who am I kidding?Ē
Well, I was trying to kid myself, talk myself out of being immobilized by the pain. I had things to do. The payroll wouldnít wait for me to get over a stiff neck. I remembered the last time, and I knew it would pass, because it did then. I tried to put it in perspective, and I think that helped, even though at times it did seem worse this time.
As before, I donít know what caused it. I donít know if I did something wrong, or if something inside me keeps trying to get out, and succeeds every so often. Every few weeks, is all, so itís not as if Iím in constant pain. If itís the same, then it will pass as it did before, within a day or two. If itís something else, most likely it will still pass.
