Yep, that’s me…a one-armed woman…and I am even going to hen-peck out a short post.

I have awoke the last few weeks with pain in my neck and in my sciatic nerve…and if the truth be told have been tossing and turning with it all night as well. But, during the day it didn’t bother me too much, so I attributed to the fact that we need a new mattress.

Today was a different story. When I woke up the pain didn’t dissipate, it got worse. Each cleaning and cooking task brought more pain to my shoulder area. Finally I started babying it, hoping non-use would bring relief. Nope. As soon as I would move it at all, pain would shoot through the joint. I started thinking I had a pinched nerve and called my chiropractor to beg him to see me ASAP. He got me in this afternoon and it turns out I have a viral infection in my nerve endings, causing them to be inflamed, hence the pain.

So, until the infection heals, I am going to work on one-armed skill development! Anyone ever see a one-armed gymnastics teacher? I hope to be better by Friday, but it is not looking good, so I think I will need to be creative!
