Dreaming of pain?
Last night I went to bed about 2am, after my midnight synchro practice. I woke up around 4am, almost crying from pain. My back hurt so badly! The lower back hurt some -- this is normal for when I wake up. But also there was a spot in my upper back that felt like I had a badly pulled a muscle. It was under my left shoulderblade, horizontally across the left side of my back-ribcage. Every time I moved, it hurt. I couldn't even take a semi-deep breath, because my ribs hurt too much to expand. What the hell did I do to myself?? I kept wondering.

I heaved myself out of bed and stumbled down the stairs, wincing and moaning. I swallowed some tylenol then limped back up the stairs and eased myself into bed. I lay completely flat, breathing shallowly, hurting, hurting, hoping to fall back asleep. Mentally I was so mad at myself: this was going to ruin my weekend! How could I be so stupid to have hurt myself without knowing it, and what was wrong? Finally, I fell asleep.

When I woke up this morning, my back felt perfectly normal.

So what was that all about? Did I dream the whole thing? And if so, what kind of insane dream is that? Or did two tylonol make it all go away? I don't know. It's all really really weird, although of course I'm glad it's gone.

Right now my back feels okay...a little bit stiff and painful in that spot, but I have a feeling it's mostly because I'm writing about it -- more sympathetic pain than the real stuff. Strange!

Pack a few Tylenol just in case - The Producers was on cable last night and I only watched a few parts. Hope Chad doesn't break out in song during "Springtime for Hitler" or "Prisoners of Love".

I'll bring some tylenol, definitely...and some duct tape for C's mouth.

too bad about the pain... however, great that it's gone!

what are you plans? something to do with going to see The Producers? :) that's a big hit here in IN.

Yes, we (C and I) going to see The Producers! It's the exciting conclusion to this two-month-old post. I expect we'll have a great weekend. I'll get to see my extended family a bit too, which will be cool.
