06:31 pm - Falling down seems to have been worse than I thought. . .
I had three margaritas in an hour today, trying to kill the pain.

It's been a hell of a day since about 12 PM (when I finished but didn't post the previous entry). It seems that the fall I took hit me harder than I thought it would. My shoulder is red and swollen, my neck hurts, and I'm having something I might mistake for signs of a heart attack if I didn't know what they really are (pulled muscle in the chest area).

It got so bad today that I ended up falling asleep again at 1 PM. I just couldn't move anymore. I got up and forced myself to eat, then took a shower. I mean what I say when I use the word "forced". I was starving, but my body didn't want me swallowing.

I'm feeling better, but still not great. I figured that the margaritas weren't helping (and when margaritas can't help, you know you're in trouble), and took some real pain relievers. My shoulder's still mighty sore, but I can breathe and turn my head again.

I took some alcohol to my elbow. I was wrong when I said that the bruise would prove which was worse: there's no bruise, just an ugly abraision on my elbow. It's just coloured like a really, really ugly bruise.

I'm still surprised at how long the pain and swelling held off, and how quickly it all hit me. Of course, I was up a tad late last night, so my body didn't really have time to stiffen up, I suppose.

sleepingwolf, I think we ought to chat, as I have something for you now. . . the fulfillment of a bet. But as I look at what I've got, it seems that it might make a better "presentation" in person than it would a mailing. Are you planning to attend any festivals? I went a bit above and beyond our terms. . . :)

If I didn't know you, I'd find it troublesome that you turned to alcohol before tylenol.

It was, in all honesty, a natural pogression of the day.

But I have the feeling that I may, possibly, be predisposed to addiction.

Good thing that I know a thing or two about it.

Alas, if I tell that to the bottle of margaritas, it will relate a sad story of loss and depression, and point to the fact that it is now half gone and I am the primary cluprit today.

But I have a good lawyer, and might get off with community service.

We have alcoholism on both sides of my father's family. I've been careful, and seen how easy it is to get addicted to things. Luckily, I've never had a real problem with alcohol.

I expect for you to be ok, and we both know what happens when things don't live up to my expectations ;-) ... In seriousness, though, a margarita sounds pretty good.

You really should see an MD, and probably a chiropractor after the muscle swelling has gone down. Try to get some ice on it if you can. Bags of frozen peas work well. And do try to get to a doctor.
