You know you're gettin' old when... (PART DEUX)

...you use your Christmas money to buy this...

...and these...

...and you injure yourself while taking a nap.

(EDIT NOTE: Photo removed because of all the CREEPS downloading it! Really, Earthlings?)

Who knew you could sprain a neck just by sleeping on it? Seriously?

Actually, this is the perfect example of what I deal with on a regular basis. Pulling and tearing muscle and cartilage by doing nothing more than turning over in bed. I'm single for a reason, peeps. (Ok that's certainly not the ONLY reason...but it is a reason nonetheless). :)

I woke up with a huge crick in my neck yesterday that got progressively worse instead of better. This morning, I started blacking out and throwing up. My uncle had to deal with me, bless his heart, and I appreciated his help in getting me to the E.R. and getting my meds filled. Two shots, three prescriptions, and a neck brace later, I'm home on bedrest till my neck heals. Or until Monday, of course, when I have surgery. Then I'll be on a different kind of bedrest.

OMGosh, you poor thing. Sprained your neck while sleeping. I sure hope the meds are helping. Hugs.
