I awoke in the small hours of last night with a sharp pain mostly in a single point on the top of my left shoulder-blade, a sort of "cold" in the shoulder. It is difficult for me to type; worse, it is difficult for me to move to and from the computer. (Ever try propelling a standard wheelchair when your shoulder hurts?) A bit of aspirin and a little time have improved matters (even kitten Lily has offered sympathy and seems to understand not to afflict me with her usual rough play today), and I have every expectation of being able to blog more easily by sometime later today. But for the moment, it's really uncomfortable. Thanks for your patience; check back later.


  1. Ow, Steve. Have you tried those popcorn or rice microwaveable cloth bags for warming a sore spot? Maybe even an old sock could be used. They are very comforting.

    Upon the Summer Solstice,
    I didn't need a polstice.

    This particular ache was unlike others I've experienced, and I think it was not my usual neuropathy. It went away very, very gradually, and is mostly gone this morning. The oddity was that it was so localized: the pain emanated from a single point. The person who suffered the most was Stella, whom I woke with my moaning and kept awake with my complaining. For me, it was just pain, and pain is daily fare for me these days.

  3. Very gentle cyber hugs for your daily aches and pains. No fun.
