Day 2187 - Feeling the strain

Yes, I can be a pain in the neck.

Don't worry, due to karma, being a pain in the neck has given me one.

For the last few days I have been in pain.  Pain in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands and head.  I can usually cope with the body pain, it's the headaches that throw me.

After two days of a pretty intense "referred" headache I have managed to get rid of it.  Instead I have a sore neck.  You know, one of those necks where it hurts to look left or right.  It hurts to lay down.

Painkillers don't work, nor does Dencorub, Weleda or any of the other pain rubs I've blogged about in the past.

I am trying to think back as to what could have caused this "trauma" to my neck.

Well, it's nothing physical.  My guess is it's 100% stress.

Stress of money, workload, chores, business and that horrible monster lurking in our daughter's closet.

Yeah, stress will do it.

So today I will tend to my neck with a quick visit to Doctor Google to find some remedies and I will have a bath in Epsom Salts.

I'll probably plan my week to feel as though I have some control on the workload and business front and then I'll get outside for some fresh air and some mindful breathing.

I think I might get back to some good quality eating again too.  The last two weeks of beach living have seen me indulge a little too much from a food and alcohol point of view.   This extra stomach I seemed to have grown may well be throwing the rest of my body out of whack.

Have a great Sunday!

Don't be a pain in the neck.
