I cannot believe that my yoga headstand endeavor has left me basically unable to sleep due to the pain, and fairly uncomfortable during the day.It’s getting worse, not better.
WHAT THE HELL?????
I was doing yoga to relax, and I had to try and show off and do a STUPID headstand and now my cervical c6 or c7 vertebra (thanks, Anatomy 101) feels like it’s pinching my entire shoulder blade. I’m not an acrobat. I’m not a freaking CIRCUS PERFORMER. Why the hell would I attempt a headstand? I’m so pissed at myself. As if I don’t have enough body issues to worry about, I am now convinced that I will be Christopher Reeving it within a few months as my cervical discs degenerate and leave me sucking my dinner from a straw.
Mostly I’m just pissed at myself.
And tired. I am really freaking tired.I have tried about 348 sleeping positions, and 100% of them hurt my neck after about 10 minutes.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days. It was a busy weekend of being pissy and generally bitchy to live with, mixed with failed attempts to nap and make up for lost sleep.
**UPDATE: In my fury over this neck bullshit, I forgot to mention that Downton Abbey’s 2 hour episode last night was insaneamazingawesome and almost made up for the whole self inflicted injury thing.
