moragmacpherson: (Standard)
So, my adventures in NYC/Washington with the Over-packed Bag of Doom™ may have had unforeseen and misery-inducing consequences.  My poor, abused upper back and shoulder muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments -- already facing the constant oppression of lugging around  my bodacious ta-tas and my habit slumping of a keyboard and typing 4-5 hours a day -- have declared war.  My left scapula kicked things off two days ago with the traditional "taking my rhomboid muscle hostage and threatening to cut it off with my rib cage".  It does this every once in awhile and I hate it, but it's at least something I'm used to.  But today my trapezius, deltoid, triceps brachii and I think the entire teres muscle group (shoulders are so wonderfully complicated) have all banded together and declared strike.   Seriously - when the most comfortable resting position for your arms is to keep your elbows pointed out and level with your shoulders, something has gone horribly wrong.  Anyway, the bad news of this is - typing?  Makes it worse - unless of course I'm lying on my belly to do it (like I am right now) -- but my neck muscles are warning me that keeping my face up at this angle is not an acceptable long-term solution.  The real killer, however, is that holding up books hurts as well, so I can't even lie in the bath and read until the pain goes away.

tl;dr - I hate my body and it hates me right back.  Consequently, there might not be much of me about for a day or two while I  wait for my muscles (and tendons and ligaments) to forgive me for all of my sins.  If it's not better by Monday, to the masseuse I shall go.

But one other thing, if you can help... )
