I'm a pain in the neck. No, well, yes maybe, but more clearly I have a pain in the neck. It's been there for about a week. I can't figure out what to do about it. I'm popping Ibuprofen like candy and I'm wondering...am I stressed? Do I sit un-ergonomically at work? Is it a sign? Am I sleeping strangely?
So, what to do? Typically, hit it on all fronts. Isn't that what we do?
I'm buying new pillows today. I'm cutting back on computer time. I'm going to powerwalk today. I've taken my pills. Man, that's gotta have some effect on something, if not my neck...
Everytime we get a kink in our life, we stab at it. We make it go away a hundred different ways. We do this and that and then someone suggests something else and we do that, too.
Why do we do that? (Or maybe we don't. Maybe it's just me.)
Shooting a fly with a shotgun will make the fly go away, but what about the walls and furniture?
