4 Years Ago Today and I Still Feel the Pain


Four years ago today, I suffered my one and only (so far!) upper body injury when I separated my shoulder playing hockey.

Even now, if I sleep too long on my left side, I feel the pain.  I've accepted long ago that this is perma-pain, and I just live with it.  When I feel the dull ache setting in, I just switch sides and it subsides.  I suppose there are worse pains to live with...

Following the injury, the pain was so intense I was popping percocets like candy.  That made for a very interesting visit to Chuck E. Cheese for my son's 7th birthday.
