Sick today...well, not sick...hurt........

I hurt myself this morning.
I just can't even believe it.
All I did was getting ready for work and was sitting at my vanity, curling my hair, and when I lifted my right arm I felt a horrible pain.
like in I thought I was going to fall out of the chair.
on the 1 to 10 pain scale, it was a 10+
but I'm a whimp so maybe it was really like a 6
and then every time I took a breath, pain...major pain

Still at this point, the not so bright person that I am, thought I could still go to work.
Came downstairs, walking very careful, let Chrissy girl out.
Then time for her to come in
and because she is so spoiled rotten, she will not come up the steps
so I bent down to get her and yep.......the 10+ pain came back.

So I called Johnny, could barely talk to him due to the pain when breathing and talking at the same time

He came home and took me to the know that big ole muscle right below your shoulder blade...that one, yep, I pulled that one.

curling my hair!

I turned down the good drugs......I don't do well with them stomach wise so the doc said just do 3 Advil every 4 hours all day.

it's better right now as long as I don't take deep breaths, sneeze or laugh.

hope it's better tomorrow.

OH NO! Why is it the stupidest things happen to us doing the simplest things?
Oh I feel so bad for you - I think pulling a muscle is the worst!!!
Chow that Advil, maybe have someone pick up that prescription after all because tonight trying to sleep might get tricky.
You poor thing. Oooddddllllles of comfort coming over the blogland waves from me. . .
Hugs! Well - a gentle one . . .

And now I've got to be careful curling my hair....thanks for the warning!!!

So sorry Nina...hope you are ALL better soon. You may want to try rubbing some BIOFREEZE on the muscle too. Biofreeze and Alleve are my best friends with muscle aches.
