Here comes tr(o)ub(e)l(e)....

(1) Had my first PT session for my neck/shoulders this AM. I was at the therapist for about an hour and a half between early arrival, paperwork, interview with the therapist, and actual therapy. Therapist did heat therapy and a massage, which was great, but also pressure point testing to find tender spots ("Ouch, there's one!") and of course taught me some "exercises to do at home" which while good for the shoulders/neck, did not make my back happy.

(2) New Grimm season starts tonight! There is something not to be grim about.

(3) I wrote another short story, 2,974 words. Class busy-ness makes me insane, but... story!

and that sucks. Maybe they'll have an exercise you can do daily that will help

So far, none of them really target the painful spot.

that's too bad but it may take time. I've been in PT since July and believe me, that arm still hurts. It's getting better but yeah

I only have six sessions prescribed. After that, I can qualify for an MRI.

I have nothing against exercise and holistic responses, but if we can get to the painkillers ASAP, that would be good.

I'm surprised they didn't put you on anti-inflammatories
