I hurt my neck in a car accident in June of 2006.
I hurt my neck again last December when I slipped and fell on our back stairs. And again in yoga class a few times. And had some sort of stress-related reaction in the same spot right before the wedding. I hurt it again right before my sister’s wedding. And again in another yoga class, so I stopped taking yoga.
It had been a few months. I was back up to my previous weights in my weights classes, and was feeling pretty good.
Then, this morning it had dropped more than 30 degrees overnight, plus it sleeted a little, and I slipped on the back stairs again. I didn’t actually fall down because I caught myself but boy howdy did I immediately feel it in that same spot in my neck.
I walked with my gym buddy at lunch, and felt a little better after that, but now my aleve has worn off and I am grumpy. I want to yell at my neck, but that doesn’t seem to do any good.
