Pain in the neck


I was on a cleaning spree last week. I dusted, lifted, cleared, evaluated and purged. It was going well.

I lifted a carton to move it to a new place, and felt a sudden painful twinge at the back of my neck. I put the carton down and realized that my neck had a sprain. Hmmm..

And then for the rest of the week, I realized, painfully,  how many times my schedule required me to bend, peer, turn and look up; and that almost everything took extra effort just so that I could protect my neck from issuing sharp and painful alerts. Even reading was painful.

One small twinge, and even everyday tasks had become laborious and difficult.

As with such pains, my body righted itself quite soon, and now I can shake my head, dance and party. I can read, without having to massage my neck frequently. I can!

Just realized that we take so many things for granted.
