Shoulder Problems

Man oh man, this might be bad. My shoulder has been bothering me a bit the last few months, but no big deal, right? Apparently, it IS a big deal, because last night it suddenly reached a new level of aching, and, sure enough, when I awoke this morning, the first thing I noticed was that my shoulder hurt. Right inside the joint. This might be bad. We'll see. I don't have insurance, or even much savings, so surgery would be impractical, if the situation warranted. We're in the busiest part of the year, the proving ground. If it holds out okay through the next two months, then, okay, I won't worry about it.

That's not good! Mine did that about a year or two ago. I thought my arm was going to fall off. It hurt the most in my wrist. I was at Publix and I bought myself a little cast that kept it from moving while I slept. I believe they have them for knees, legs, wrists.. but I'm not sure about shoulders.

You may have to give yourself a break at work. Are you eating your fruits and veggies? And Milk for strong bones??

Don't 4get your health! It's all you have to live!

Well, the last two nights I didn't have any problem. I'm trying to "be active" while drawing and coloring, moving my body position around to ease any discomfort immediately. I remember my wrist hurting a little three years ago, but I simply adjusted my position a bit, and all was well. ...Anyway, I think I must "look beyond caricaturing" to be on the safe side.
