... the ringing has either stopped or the pain in my upper back/neck is louder than the ringing.
Last night, I had a bit of pain between my shoulder blades up to the back of my neck. I found it difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in, but I did sleep.
The phone woke us up around 6am this morning, and though my neck and upper back felt stiff and difficult to move, I managed to answer the phone. It was the "boss" from the cat shelter asking if I could come in today. I would've normally said 'yes' because I love to work at the shelter, but I couldn't today. Not with this pain or everything else I want/need to do today. She understood and told me not to worry.
I just hope that I'm not in worse shape tomorrow, my usual day of shelter work.
Anyway, that's it for now. I might be back tonight. Until then, I hope you are doing well.
PS: Today, I am grateful for really hot showers (as hot as I could tolerate). Even if the relief was only temporary, it felt good.
