It's Christmas. I'm going to have to talk to people who are abusive. I don't want to. I'm preparing for war. It has me stressed.
Aaaanyway. The stress had my muscles seizing and a terrible headache resulted. Then, the Amazing Flatmate lent me a thing. It's a weird thing that stretches out the neck into the position it's supposed to be in... or something... I'm not sure.
I can tell you that once you've used it, you can't just sit up. That hurts like a mofo. You just roll off the thing. And then you lay there until your neck muscles can function again without screaming agony. Then you get up.
That thing was miraculous. After I could move again, the headache peak I was experiencing was gone. My mood was much improved and I had the best sleep in a long time last night.
I'm using that strange magical torture device again. It hurt. Genuinely. But the pay-off was soooooooooooo worth it.
Here's a question: what painful thing do you have/do that genuinely makes you feel so much better for having used/done it?
