It’s not funny anymore

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.

  1. Ouch! I’m glad the rest of you is ok. Hope the neck pain goes away real quick.

  2. poor thingI hope your neck pain goes away quickly – maybe try a heat pack?

  3. Ouch, that stinks. Neck pain is just awful.

  4. I would like to point out that it was never funny to begin with.

  5. Pretty much what GBN said, not funny the first time. I know how much being active in your body means to you and spinal pain puts the kibosh on that so effectively.Hope you feel better soon.

  6. I’m sorry, doll. I hope you feel better soon. I am such a baby when I just get a stiff neck – I can’t imagine REAL neck problems.

  7. Ugh, that does sound so frustrating and of course painful! I hope things get better not just now but in the future!

  8. Po tang. I hope you feel better soon.
