Something, somewhere, somehow went terribly wrong. My neck is a complete disaster. It feels like it did the months after my car wreck in 2002. My left side, from my ribs to my ears, is extremely weak. (Being left-handed sucks right now!) I barely slept. Bolts of pain shot through me whenever I'd move and ruined any chances of sleep. Several times today I was literally trembling with pain. Nausea caught me at odd moments. And because I couldn't eat, the weakness was worse and I drifted toward light-headedness. Hated life most of the day. Hated it.

Fortunately the chiropractor was able to slip me into his schedule. I felt much better after an adjustment, but I don't think I'm too far down the path to recovery. When something hurts this back, recovery takes more than one session. And any relief is usually measured in hours, not days.

I don't know what caused it. I did NOT do anything strenuous this weekend. And I haven't worked out in at least three weeks. If this is a result of sleeping incorrectly, I'm going to start sleeping less.
