No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

In Discomfort

"Life moves. Life does not stop. Life changes on a whim and throws you curve balls. Your goal is not to stop Life from happening, but to remain calm and centered as the seeming chaos happens around you. As you calm your mind and cultivate trust you turn from a victim of circumstance into a powerful creator of your life."

- Jackson Kiddard, author

It all began yesterday, the spasms in the left side of my neck and into my left ear. They are quite painful as it feels like someone stabbing me in the ear with an ice pick. The spasm jerks my shoulder up to my ear every time it happens.

I have been taking a pill and a half of Baclofin. I can have two tablets a day and I will do that for now but I feel this medication has taken me as far as it can go. Last night I began with taking Ibuprofen but that didn't seem to work very well. Then I took a medication for muscle spasms, this helped buy I am still having the spasms.

Then I took out the big guns, my rice pack. It is heated in the microwave for two minutes and I lay it in the crook of my shoulder and neck. After a few minutes I begin to feel some relief and finally the spasm has gone away.

Or, so I thought.

Not long after rising this morning the spasm begins in again. I've taken my Baclofin, the pill for muscle spasms, and my rice pack.

I think this will be it for me today. Have a wonderful day everyone.

"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again." - William Penn, English entrepreneur and philosopher
