I was laying in bed this morning, thinking about how good I felt and all the things I wanted to get done today. I thought to myself, "I'll get out of bed and get moving." As I was thinking that, I put my arms above my head and S T R E T C H E D.
Something P O P P E D and P A I N started radiating through my chest and back.
I gasped and stretched again. More P A I N. I struggled out of bed and stretched again. More P A I N and a few tears.
I managed to shower and dress. The Husband drove me to the chiropractor's office. The doc said I had popped a rib out of place (WTH?) and the ligaments attached to the rib were stretched out. He popped the rib back in place, which made me feel a bit better. The problem is that stretched ligaments can take days or weeks to heal. (good grief!)
So here I sit, alternating an ice pack on my back to my chest hoping to ease the pain. So much for getting a lot of things done today.
You can help me feel better by entertaining me with stories of the most bizarre way you've ever injured yourself. Come on, tell me. It will be our little secret!
