As you know I have been nursing a sore shoulder for some months now. Basically it’s come on since I’ve been writing full-time and spending oodles of time at the cesspit I call my desk. Yoga and the stretch clock app have only helped a little.
And I tried an osteo a while back but gave her the sack after she mixed up my shoulders. Surely, I thought there was some reason she was spending so much time on my good shoulder – a yin and yang thing maybe – nope, she just forgot which one was the dud!
Anyway, I was inspired – as I so often am – by the OverAchiever who has been seeing a physio for a strained hamstring. Of course, the OverAchiever is the most conscientious patient you could imagine. Yes, she does her stretches three times a day – even during a trip to the zoo! It’s amazing the funny looks you get when your kid lies down and starts pelvic thrusting 🙂
So I went and saw the lovely Caitlyn at the local physio and she diagnosed sloppy shoulder. Just googled ‘sloppy shoulder’ and the first definition that came up was: a person whom consistently attempts to avoid responsibility for their own actions or others they have authority over. Hmm!
Anyway, the good news is it’s fixable. The bad news is because it’s kind of accumulated over a long time, it’s going to take a while to fix. She gave me these long red rubbery things which I need to do resistance training with once a day.
Feeling good about this because I was thinking this was what I had to resign myself to if I wanted to keep writing (well typing writing). So best be off – have some training to do 🙂
PS. putting it out there publicly that we have an agreement to drop to twice weekly blogging if I get a certain job that I just went for.
