Bryce Without Me

This is where I should have been today…but instead I went to the doctor to find out what’s wrong with my neck. Just as I’d thought yesterday, my doctor and his medical assistant found the story of my neck injury via flossing to be pretty entertaining. I can’t help but laugh now, too, although it’s partly because I have some prescription painkillers to help me smile.

But, seriously, I’ve heard about people who’ve experienced pinched nerves and other muscle spasms, but I never quite understood what they were going through until now. You don’t realize how much you rely on your neck for balance and movement, not to mention turning. I discovered that wearing my beloved turtlenecks brought tears to my eyes when putting them on or taking them off, and donning socks is tough when it’s hard to bend your neck toward your feet.

Thankfully, the medications have helped to ease the pain. And I hope with a quiet weekend at home now planned, my neck will return to normal sooner rather than later as my doctor predicts. Next Friday I hope to be back on the slopes!
