My 70 pound dog was ferociously barking at my brother-in-law who stopped by for a minute. Actually she was barking at the dog that was tied in the back of my brother-in-law's pickup. It was a teeth-baring, low growl, evil look in her eyes kind of reaction that my dog had to his dog, and what do I do? I was not going to let my dog hurt his dog, and I stepped in and grabbed my dog by her collar to get her away from the other one. Stupid!!!!!
I wrestled my dog away, pulled and tugged with all my strength, while she was determined to go the other direction. I fought this dog for about 7 minutes while my brother in law got his dog settled down and drove away. I have a 10 pound weight restriction. What was I thinking?
And now: ouch!!!!!! arms burn, ache, or tingle depending on where, neck has a stabbing pain about the C7 area, throbbing on the side of my neck, and the worst headache I have had post op.
Will someone please hit me over the head? Just put me out of my misery. I'm tired of all of this. I didn't even give it a thought when I was trying to separate a dog fight. All I wanted to do was make sure that both dogs lived another day. Now I want to go out and shoot them both though! Good thing brother-in-law took off with his dog!!!!
I hope it is just that I used muscles that haven't been used for weeks, but I'm really worried here. It has only been an hour, so hopefully things will settle down. The rest of my family just left for the movies and i'm going to spend yet another night alone worried about my neck. Enough already! I don't think I'll ever get back to feeling good again, and I'm sooooo tired of it all.
OK, enough of my venting. I am just at a place right now where I don't know how much more I can take. for now, I'll just make it through tonight and see what tomorrow brings.
Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
