My back is essentially completely better (cf. entry titled "Flat"), but last night I went and slept funny on my neck. It feels okay as long as I keep my head down like I'm trying not to hit the ceiling, but if I straighten up or try to tilt my head back it hurts. It's just your run-of-the-mill sore neck, really, so why am I blogging about it?
Because I was once again lured in by the siren song of heat. I noticed my hot/cold pack sitting in the office kitchen and thought, hey, I bet if I heat it up and put it on my neck that will feel nice. It's just like the hot shower that I thought of when my back started hurting. "By golly," I said then and now, "heat is just the thing that will make everything better."
Earth to Dianna: this is not the case. Take two hours and put the cold pack in the freezer and then put it on your neck, you dummy, and it'll be cool and not hurting instead of pleasantly warm and otherwise totally unimproved. Aha.Posted by dianna at February 2, 2005 11:07 AM
