Not only does my shoulder still hurt like the blazes, not only do I have to teach four classes in the next three days, but I have volunteered to go in to work early tomorrow to help with the wrap-up of the Six Week Challenge (which, by the way, I utterly failed at for my own part. Ah, well... there's always another six weeks!).

Before you chide me, I didn't want to leave my boss on her own; she's got enough on her plate right now.

And speaking of plates, I was going to make a chopping-intensive dinner of lentils with mushrooms and broccoli, along with salad and homemade ranch dressing. The menu has now been downgraded to turkey tacos, red beans and rice from a box and whatever salad fixings are already small enough to toss into a bowl.

Now it's a glass of wine and the most recent Staggering Stories podcast for me. I might still be ouchy, but I'll be considerably less grumpy.

p.s. if things are still terrible tomorrow, I'll try to get an appointment with the doctor. An appointment with the Doctor would be better still, but hey... he's got bigger things to worry about.

p.p.s. in case you're wondering, the local Emergency Room is NOT an option. ::shudder::

Yikes! hope that shoulder starts behaving itself!

(and my icon does not show the doctor that you need for your shoulder pain, but yet a very good doctor for all else, indeed!)

If I could get an appointment with this Doctor, I'd not hesitate for a moment.

After reading your last 3 posts, I can safely say that I had the same paion on monday after helping with a move on sunday... I went to the Chiropractor and he said that not only did I have a vertibrae out of alignment, It also put a rib or two out of place, which is why I had the sharp pain in my chest when I breathed deep.

I dont know what your views are on crack doctors, but they do help me... they at least takke the edge off so other things will work and I dont hate life.

And I am sure that a sonic screwdirver would help somehow...

I must confess I'm considerably wary of chiropracters; I've heard too many tales of woe to put my trust in them. Mind, I've heard positive stories as well, and I'm ever so glad you fall into that camp!

About four months past I had a very similar pain in my left shoulder; that turned out to be a rotator cuff strain. It's likely this is the same thing (just today I was able to pinpoint exactly what set it off; oh, how I miss my youthful resilience!). Ideally, I'd like to be able to call my GP's office and ask for the same steroid pack he prescribed for the previous injury. With that and rest, I'll be right as rain in just over a week. Thing is, he'll probably want me to come in for a consult, which means that's Tuesday at the earliest. bah.

And I am sure that a sonic screwdriver would help somehow...

Exactly so. Man, I SO need the phone number of the TARDIS.
