OK, this summer is turning into something I want to forget very quickly, but could potentially have life altering effects.
I’m still off work. My GP recommended a chiropractor for my neck and shoulder problems, so I paid a visit to one in Carleton, and I’ve had 4 sessions so far, with number 5 today. It is strange, but you get used to it. The “adjustments” are an interesting experience, and the sounds are worse than the actual sensation. The first time he did my neck I was literally stunned, but my left shoulder and my neck are a lot better….neck adjustments, a rib adjustment (I think), lots of icing….
….that was until this morning, my right shoulder acted up a little last week, but this morning, it woke me up. I’m in a lot of pain now, and nothing, ice, painkillers or anything, are touching it. 4pm I have more chiro, and I’m praying he can sort this, otherwise I will end up with my GP asking for a referral.
So, the question now is, is my tennis in jeopardy? I love my tennis, I was fully fit at the beginning of the season, but for this to hit me and not get better is very worrying. Nobody has said give it up, but it is crossing my mind. If I can’t play, then I don’t want to stay on the Fylde Coast, because work isn’t enough to keep me here. I don’t do positive thinking, I do facts, and I need something to keep me together.
I continue to spend my days resting, doing a little each day as my counsellor suggested, watching tennis at my club. I’ve given up my PS3 (or 85% of it) to see if that helps. I’ll get some advice about how to sleep with this. And cross my fingers…
