Getting Stressed Trying to De-stress

I have had this gimpy neck for like three days and I am in major pain. I guess not surgery pain, but the drama queen in me is coming out. I have not wanted to exercise or do anything that might make it worse. I worked out on Tuesday morning and right after that I got a crick in my neck. I tried to continue with life, but it was just not happening.

My sweet hubby got talked into a gift certificate for a massage by two awesome ladies who dropped the hint on Valentine's Day that he should get me something. Thank you ladies! Anyway, I decided to use my gift certificate for a 30 minute massage.

I thought I knew which salon the masseuse worked at then realized after about 5 minutes of standing in the salon where I thought she worked that I was at the wrong place. So I showed up 10 minutes late to my massage all stressed out thinking that I might miss my one opportunity of getting this gimpy neck to stop hurting. She was very gracious, after I called my husband in a very peeved way (because it was all his fault you know. . . poor guy) and asked him to call the salon and tell them that I was running late.

She started to work on my neck, back and everything else and I immediately relaxed. After the massage was over I thanked her, talked to her for about an hour and a half afterwards and left thinking I needed another massage to de-stress. I woke up this morning with my neck hurting worse than ever! Agh.

I promise to post about more encouraging times another day! "Momma told me there would be days like this."

Eww. I am so sorry. I understand how painful neck issues can be. Have you tried some gentle stretches and perhaps a chiropractor?
