So, I have managed to injure my shoulder badly enough that it kept me up last night. Could not relax my neck enough to rest my head on my pillow. It appears that juggling giant boxes of random crap does not sit well with my lack of upper-body strength.
When I went to see my chiropractor, she asked me if I had been doing pushups or lifting weights or perhaps helping someone move... nope. Just spring cleaning.
I am now on strict orders to rest said shoulder, to apply ice, take anti-inflammatories and to ease off the manic cleaning. Had to miss band practice tonight-- because I cannot bear the weight of my horn with my left arm.
I hope to be able to sleep tonight. My entire left side feels tense. Not just the stupid shoulder. I can see why people take muscle relaxants. Ugh.
