Sorry for not posting anything entertaining lately, but I've been suffering with shoulder pain for the past week or so.
As it turns out, this injury has provided me with a little bit of inspiration for this blog!
First - the correct way to inquire about a person's injury. You can ask me "What happened to your shoulder?" or something to that effect, but if you say "Did you do something to your shoulder?" I may just flippantly reply that I'm wearing a sling because I LIKE trying to open prescription vials with one hand!
Second - what's up with doctors? I tell the guy that my shoulder hurts, and the note he gives me to get me out of work for a couple of days says that I strained my NECK. Then, after the meds he gives me for my strained neck don't help my shoulder, and I go back to the office, he and the nurses all look at me like I'm a drug-crazed freak. So tempted to shake my keys at them and say "These unlock the pharmacy - if I wanted drugs illegally, I have the means..."
Finally found a doc with a brain, pain is improving, life may just get better soon.....
