Love you, Be Good!
I have had a painful neck/back (shoulder area really) for the last week and a half.
I have been taking various forms of pain pills, hot and cold compresses, and trying in vain to get a massage from any of the three quite capable pairs of hands in my household.
Nothing has been working for pain relief and I figured it's time to call the doctors office.
The most painful of all is that I have been getting zero in the sympathy department from my family.
I have been wracking my brain trying to remember what I did.
What do I tell the doctor was the cause of my severe pain?
No, I didn't hurt myself while leaping into action stopping a purse snatcher and I didn't pull a muscle while lifting a car off a toddler, I also didn't pinch a nerve while rescuing a drowning man.
Then I remembered! Ah Ha! Son #1 takes his motorcycle skills test this coming Friday.
So there it is - it's a stress pain.
He will be on his motorcycle, driving down the highway, without me.
I won't be there to drop him off at his friends saying, "Be good!", "Don't do drugs!", "What time do I pick you up?" "Do you have money?" "Keep your penis in your pants!" "Love you!"
He won't miss that, but I sure will...
Is it just me or do they grow up way too fast?
Seriously, has anyone tried acupuncture? My neck really hurts......
