I'm still home. And I'm still bored out of my skull. No developments yet in the world of crazybossland. I saw the organization's hired lawyer on Wendesday last week, and there's been no movement as far as I can tell. The lawyer at that point said two more weeks to resolution, which, if accurate, would make it four weeks that I've been sitting around waiting for this to blow over. Not cool. I'm losing my edge, man. My brain is rotting. And, the stress is TOTALLY taking its toll on my poor little body. My neck pain from last Friday (no, not this Friday that just passed, but the Friday before that, Oct. 28) is still hanging on, and I'm getting really pissed off about it. I'm sort of not worried, because it definitely feels like muscle pain, and it only feels sore like that when I hang my head forward. No other direction. No back pain, no headaches (aside from those pesky sinus headaches), and only mild shoulder soreness, but I can actually feel those knots.

On the other hand, I only had one panic attack during this whole thing, and that is a serious, major accomplishment.

And on the other other hand, I got accepted to Baruch's Masters in Public Administration program! Yay for me! I got my admissions packet on Saturday, and have been feeling really good about that.

Now, I'm off to vote for NYCs Mayor. I really love voting. Geeky, I know, but I just love it.

Good luck with the lawyers. If you are sure the neck pain is muscular, the best thing for it is moist heat, the easiest way to to that is take a small towel wet in and put it in the microwave - get it hot, then put it in a zip lock bag and wrap in a cloth. Put on on old sweatshirt or wrap a scarf around the area and put the heating pad on it. That should help loosen it up and relax the muscle some - take a painreliever to reduce any swelling and ease the pain. If you know someone who can massage your neck - that would be great, if not try using your fingertips under the occipital rigde on the back of your skull above your neck - small circular motions should help too.
