new doctor seems much better than old doctor, similar to how walking upright seems better than a ventral crawl. he actually listened (!!!) to what i had to say about my shoulder and neck pain, and here are his conclusions:
the reason my neck is still sore, and that i am having strange headaches at the base of my head is because is because i sprained my neck, and the soft tissues are still not relaxed and fully healed. of course i’m not explaining this exactly right, because, like many people, i am not a doctor, but still. you get the point.
as for my shoulder, which is really the biggest concern right now due to chronic and radiating pain, limited range of motion ,and episodic numbness (i sound like i’m on e.r. i need to intubate!)—all after 5 weeks—he is thinking i may have torn something, like my labrum or rotator cuff.
now i need to get some more imaging done (cause i'm a model you know what i mean, and i do my little turn on the catwalk), so that we can maybe see what all is going on in there. and then who knows? after all this bad crap, i’m due for some really good karma. i’m gonna win the lottery and buy myself a bionic shoulder. then maybe i’ll a cape so i can fight crime.
speaking of capes (huh?), tomorrow i will be driving to el cajon to meet valancy jane. we plan on listening to gwar and overdosing on cheap tar heroin. or we might be making valentines. with sequins! (i sicken myself.)
anyways, i'm telling you all this because though i'm reasonably sure she won't try to eat me, or use my skin as a lampshade, i just feel safer knowing the internets know where i am.
if she does try it though, you'll have good reading come monday.
