Pain Builds Character?

Got my massage tonight. And I managed not to scream, even though it hurt worse than it ever has. I could literally feel her separating the muscles in my shoulder, like she was strumming a tightly strung guitar. It took her twenty minutes to find the right spot with the worst encapsulation. She said if it were her she'd be crying.

Finally she told me it was okay to say "enough."

You'd think after all these years she'd know me better than that!

Now that I've showered (and iced my shoulder), I'm going to go watch the luminous Greer Garson playing Hollywood's version of Madame Curie. I've only seen it once before, and I remember it being quite entertaining, with Walter Pigeon as Pierre.

Then I'd better catch a few winks, because tomorrow is going to be a LOOONG day, starting off with Executive Committee at 7:30, and ending at 7:00pm after the Court meeting.

Big sigh.

Sounds like tomorrow will be very long. I hope Charlie stays home and can get feeling better. I hate for her to be suffering and Tuesday is a long time to wait for her doctor appointment.

I will be around home most of the day so she can call me if she needs anything.

Yeah, I wish Charlie were feeling better. It's a real pain when she's sick . . .

You poor thing. I've had painful massages but man, that sounds horrible. You must have some awful spasms going on.

I just have to tackle the last little bit of this frozen shoulder. I wasn't aggressive enough with the right shoulder, and it's lingered too long. So, I need to endure the pain. It will be worth it in the long run.

That's a great movie!

Hope your shoulder gets well soon, though. :(

Thanks! The shoulder is just millimeters from being back to 'normal.' But if I don't go after it, it will probably stay partially frozen forever. I've been complacent about it (you kinda get used to the immobility), and I'm not going to let myself give up.

Still . . . I'm pretty sore today.

I'm sore just from reading the first half of this post! Ouch!

Now where is my ice pack?? *LOL*

I hope your LOOONG day is a good one,Marilyn!

It was long, but I made it without shooting anybody, hehe.

And now I'm just sore and sleepy!

Thanks for the hugs, D!

That sounds like a very long day. I don't know how you do it.

Sometimes I don't know either . . .
