A literal pain in the neck.

Just got back from the doctor. The good news is my cold/flu is all gone, no infection of any kind in my ears. However, I have pulled a muscle where the neck and head meet. Pulled it rather badly, actually. Doc had me turning my head this way and that, and poked a bit- "DOES THIS HURT?" Hell yes, it hurt! Glad I know it wasn't anything more serious. She gave me a painkiller and a muscle relaxant. I've taken some already, and though the pain is still there, I'm feeling a bit loopy. After Countdown, I'm going to bed!

I'm relieved that it wasn't anything worse. Mom was like, "That's it?!" Yeah, easy for her to say! It's not like it's going to heal overnight.

This kills my weekend plans, though. Mom and I were going to take Katie for her birthday shopping spree at Potomac Mills tomorrow, and we were also planning to go see Julie and Julia. Plus, I have a free birthday hamburger coupon for Red Robin that expires Sunday- I want to use it! If my painkillers kick in soon, maybe the weekend can be salvaged. I don't want to push it, though.

I can't turn my head without pain, so I really can't do much more than sit up and read. Laughing hurts, too. At least I'm not coughing and sneezing anymore!
