I haven't been posting much lately. I had something I wanted to post about,concerning the latest revelation of Mother Theresa and the nature of faith, but it's just not there. Lots of really bizarre and very bad stuff has been going on with different people who are dear to our hearts, and it all leaves me kind of depressed. Plus, I visited the doctor yesterday for a head/neckache that's lasted for 2 1/2 weeks, but she didn't know of any specific reason for it. She gave me some vague things to do for it--ibuprofin, which of course I'd tried and it didn't work, neck rubs, which hurt, heat, which I hadn't done besides hot showers. She also thought perhaps I should stay off the computer for the weekend....but here I am. I will have a hiatus from the computer next week, as we are going on our yearly homeschool campout at Patrick's Point in California. Anyway, I am now the new owner of a heating pad. Which really isn't helping.

And pain, of course, always adds to depression. So I hope it'll go away soon.

Now you can go on to your regularly scheduled upbeat blog reading. And I might just be back with that post about faith yet.

So sorry...constant pain is no fun. I went through most of the summer with a weird pain that started on my shoulder. It felt like I had slept on it funny, but it lasted for weeks. Then I thought it must be arthritis setting in (talk about making me feel OLD!). But the weird thing is that it began to migrate down my arm until finally my wrist was in constant pain. It was not getting better and I kept thinking that I need to go see a dr. Even last week (because it was particularly bad) I was thinking I should call the her up. But yesterday I realized that I wasn't in pain anymore... it just went away. Since I never saw the drs. I have no idea what that was.

I hope your neck problem goes away soon.

one word: chiropractor. I am not a big fan of a lot of alternative medicine but when anything spinal/neck area gets out of whack there is nothing like it.
