Birds of a Feather

Yesterday I received my second chiropractic adjustment. More cracking of the neck, more biofreeze, more ultrasound, more electrodes. More money.

On the way home I realized that this whole crooked neck thing has really affected my self image. Annie taunting me with the moniker of Lil' Warp Neck was echoing in my ears. Then I thought, Hey, my reaction to this is my choice. It's up to me how I choose to respond! So, I got to thinking about others who are known for having crooked necks. In fact, their beautiful necks are one of their most endearing characteristics. I came up with these:

See? This isn't such bad company to be in. I may not be a heron or have pretty plummage, but I have ... um ... an oversized ... head, that, well, has nearly broken my neck ...

This isn't working.

At least I have someone who cares out there. Take a look at the comments from yesterday's post. Andrew saw my x-ray and let me know his thoughts. He noted that it was the C4 - C6 region of my cervical spine that is causing the pinched nerve. Thanks Andrew.

I must've typed my comment yesterday on my INVISIBLE computer...hmmm...I'll have to check that out.

No love...there's just no love.

Oh, I know the love is there. I just didn't equate you almost peeing your pants with concern for my well-being. Thank you for your wonderful support, even if it comes in the form of laughing at me.
