Ship’s Log–January 30th, 2015


I did not sleep well last night. Anytime I rolled over onto my left side or even my back, the stabbing pain woke me. When 6 finally rolled around, I pulled myself out of bed and announced to a still sleeping Hub that I was going to have to see the chiropractor this morning. ASAP.

I stumbled out to the kitchen, got myself my morning glass of water, and then shuffled to my comfy chair in the living room, where it is my habit to spend 15 minutes reading through the morning news before getting to work making breakfast. I shifted my weight, and there was a loud pop from my shoulder as something snapped back into place. The pain subsided immediately, though there is still a little ache left.

Guys, I think my shoulder might have been a wee bit partially dislocated, or to be less dramatic, it was what my chiropractor might call a subluxation of the shoulder joint. I’m glad it corrected itself early in the day rather than making me sit in acute pain until I could get an appointment with my chiropractor–as a side note, anyone who trains in the martial arts should have a trusted sports chiro on their support team. I have lost count of how many times mine has put my joints back in the proper order. The now-duller ache in my upper chest stayed with me all day, but that’s only to be expected. I am going to give it a day or two of rest, and if it’s still aching Monday, I’ll let Dr. Barbara have a go at it.
