I am. Alive and kicking that is. In case you have been wondering why my online visits have been...infrequent over the past 10 days, I somehow managed to sprain my shoulder joint earlier this month. (The physio seems to think I did it while sleeping on my stomach, but since I've been sleeping on my stomach for...more years than I want to think about I'm going to go with 'cause unknown' :)
Anyway, it wasn't the spraining of said shoulder joint that directly led to me being offline. See, all my neck and shoulder muscles reacted to the sprain by tensing...to try and stabilize my neck. But they went right past tensing and into spasm! And OMG was it painful! Excruciatingly painful! I have endless sympathy for those with any form of back pain. So, after two days of watching my normal strength antiinflammatory agents work less and less, I toddled (literally - I didn't want to move my neck...actually, by that point I had pretty much no range of motion) along to see the physio, a new physio, as my usual physio was on annual leave. Among the many things I was asked to do, spending less time on the computer was one. Mainly because I would be in one position for too long. (And if I thought he was joking, which I didn't, being at work completely proved him right.) Hence the infrequent visits.
But...I'm currently allowed to be online for 30 minutes at a time and I'm hoping by Wednesday that limitation will have been lifted *fingers crossed* In the interim I've been...not doing much. I did go and see Unstoppable. It was...good. Not really much of a plot...at all, but lots of action. And Chris Pine was rather nice eye candy :)
Oh, and since the title of my post has led to this song whirling around my head, here is a little taste of Simple Minds:
So, what have you been up to lately?
