owwwwwwwwwww

Something has seriously gone wrong with my right shoulder. It had been bugging me for a while, and I had attributed the pain to a repetitive motion injury -- my right arm is the arm I usually use to lift heavy bags of groceries at work. Thing is, I've been looking out for it for a while now. It started bothering me maybe a month ago, and then I spent a week in Ohio not lifting heavy bags of groceries, and, since then, I've been being conscious to lift with my left arm and give my right arm a break.

So what the fuck is going on? It only started bothering me during the last hour or two of my shift tonight, and, by the time we closed, I couldn't even lift my arm enough to fork my rice into my mouth. Now, every little motion leaves me wincing. Joseph said he thought it was the weather -- that his injuries from the last time he was hit by a car were acting up, and that he blamed the humidity. I hope he's right and that I haven't inadvertently done something new and horrible to it.

I have one -- count em, one -- hydrocodone left from who knows when (the keratitis, or maybe my last car accident). I plan to take it now and hope for some sleep.

might take your thoughts off your shoulder
The Meeting Our night arrives famished, Swallowing the light. Breeding silent darkness Consuming us from light. Shadows born from moonlight, Whisper all around. Telling secret tales, In language void of sound. Dancing on the memories, That daylight left behind, We Swirl in veils cascaded across the land. Drapped in cloaks of silence, With a captivating stillness. Were shrouded in blue black resin, That drips from liquid night. With ever crawling sureness, Were smothering with completeness. All who dwell within its realm, Will suffer from it sweetness. CMH

The Meeting

Our night arrives famished,

Swallowing the light.

Breeding silent darkness

Consuming us from light.


Shadows born from moonlight,

Whisper all around.

Telling secret tales,

In language void of sound.


Dancing on the memories,

That daylight left behind,

We Swirl in veils cascaded across the land.


Drapped in cloaks of silence,

With a captivating stillness.

Were shrouded in blue black resin,

That drips from liquid night.


With ever crawling sureness,

Were smothering with completeness.

All who dwell within its realm,

Will suffer from it sweetness.

Shoulder
I would try a register facing a different direction, for an ergonomic correction. If that fails, consider whether work has either created a new injury or aggravated a pre-existing injury, and consider a comp claim. I can attest to cashiering wearing one down. That's why I'm only doing part time currently...my old bones can't take it. Especially with those crappy seats.
