On Saturday Jan 22nd, I woke up with a very sore neck. I'm not sure how a person can sleep on their neck wrong, but I managed it. It kept getting worse - neck, shoulder, arm, headaches etc, but finally this afternoon it seems to have let up. There's still some soreness, but it is going away.
I guess it's part of getting older. If the past is any prediction of the future, I'll be older tomorrow than I am today, and it'll just continue on that way. Everything will work just a tad less effeciently than it did the day before.
I managed to keep up my "rigorous" schedule - walking the dog and such. But still it hurt.
I can't imagine someone having to live with pain like that every day of their lives, but I know lots of people do. All in all, I've been fortunate.
