Tendinitis and Bursitis
Today I went to physical therapy for my shoulder. I have tendinitis and bursitis in my left shoulder from incorrectly using my left arm while working. Shame one me. It feels like I have an ice pick through my shoulder. I have been taking a muscle relaxant for three nights which helped quite a bit. I iced my shoulder once but since I was kind of dopey, I left the ice on too long and now my skin hurts too. That feels just like a bad bruise. Duh! I'm on the mend now which is good. It is amazing how cranky one gets when one is in constant pain, 24/7! I'm so glad I have lots of help at home. Thanks DSH and DSSD! I had lots of offers from other family members and friends but with two live-in helpers, it wasn't really necessary for all the troops to jump in. My shoulder is taped up to limit movement which feels very good. Hopefully, life will be back to normal soon!
