Glory. I am so glad this week is OVER. I struggle with tense muscles–not sometimes but always. Even after a massage, my muscles are tight. This week I tried a familiar, but mostly underutilized product on my neck and shoulders before bed. The first day, I woke up feeling icky–light-headed, nauseous, over-all icky. Since colds and other yuck are still lingering, and I’ve had some allergies to dust/pollen because of our renovations, I thought nothing of it. I repeated the process that night (putting product on my neck and shoulders). During the night, I woke up several times with my head spinning because I had moved. Vertigo. It was then that I realized the cream I was using was affecting me adversely. In the morning, I had a MASSIVE migraine. But I had a dentist appointment. I took meds and muscled through. Two days later I am still feeling its effects a little, despite not having repeated the process. Now, before you fuss, I had used this cream on other muscles previously, including my shoulders, and had no reaction, which is why I didn’t even consider it originally. I don’t think I’m allergic, but I definitely won’t use it on my neck again. :o
On the up side, my shower is ALMOST done. I can’t wait to share pics with you–‘cuz I just know you care. :D We have to wait another three weeks for the shower door–a single piece of glass cut to fit our opening, which couldn’t be measured until the tile was complete. BUT we took a shower in there last night anyway. The shower is almost fully enclosed, so water doesn’t spray out. It was SO NICE showering in my own bathroom. haha
