Day 121, Reason 121: Today I am so happy and grateful that I am on the mend after my recent, nasty neck injury. Yippee!
It’s been a funny old day! I woke this morning feeling so completely exhausted that there was nothing else for it but to return to the comfort of my bed straight after breakfast. I snoozed until lunchtime and then managed to drag myself to the shower, which I hoped would revive me, but it didn’t have the desired effect and I continued to feel like a zombie.
After lunch, I battled to stay vertical and try and get on with something – anything – as I hate the feeling that I’m wasting my life away, but my body just wouldn’t cooperate. So, I reluctantly gave in and went back to bed for yet some more dozing and resting.
And then, upon waking and finally getting dressed at 5pm (shameful I know,) I was delighted to discover that I was feeling a little better and my neck wasn’t as painful. It was like magic!
My body was obviously crying out for sleep and rest, so it could get on with the job of healing, mending and repairing uninterrupted. I really must learn to listen to my body more often.
I even felt up to going for a short walk with Mum and our two dogs this evening. It felt wonderful to be out in the warm sunshine and fresh air and to be able to move about without the constant cloud of pain.
I even remembered to take my phone, so I could snap a few photos to show you.

Jude and Bojangles were reluctant to stay still long enough to have their photo taken. Can you tell which side my Mum was standing, telling them to “stay?”
