hope i'm battling being sick, that would mean the body aches, etc won't last very long. i did sleep for 12 hours,that's usually a clue that my body is fighting off something. a muscle in my back is spasming in that way that fatigued muscles do, other areas, can't figure out if its skin or soft tissue below, just hurts. took a walk, hoping that would snap my back out of it, didn't work. did feel better in the tub, hot water stopped the spasm, unfortunately, only temporarily. maybe it was (mostly) standing at a gathering of neighbors for new year's day that did it in? then sleeping that long probably didn't help, as in bed that long makes things hurt that never did when i went to bed. if its not one thing, its another, no wonder people here talk about the gremlin that roams around the body stirring up trouble. oh well, had about 2 days of feeling pretty good after the chiro did some work to the supraspinatus. maybe he'll know what to do for this back muscle?
