Well; I promised to tell all about
my massage and that problematic left arm. I had a massage yesterday, by an excellent therapist. I could tell she really knew her stuff and was fair about
going away from the really painful site, to other areas to get 'feel good"endorphins flowing and then back to the trigger point. It sure was an overly irritated trigger point, because as I dressed following the massage it stuck up from my shoulder about
a half an inch. he also found an area opposite that when she touched that trigger point I saw images of my mother (odd) with whom I have no relationship, and in order to make the pain stop I had to forcefully practise mind control and gently reguide myself to images of waterfalls, etc. Finally, it let go. The trigger point on the offending shoulder id still standing at attention. It hurt soooooo bad. The therapist said she could feel it starting to soften as she put increasing pressure on it. All of my body feels better today, except that one spot. It is still inflamed and very bothersome. I booked a second session for two weeks and will try to lay off the left arm untill then. However, as I am right handed, I use my right arm for finicky details, like turning keys in locks, etc., but my left arm is what holds all the parcels, all the weight, and right now here, it's just me and two dogs and three cats and none are great at holding grocery bags while I struggle with key in lock. They tend to run away with the groceries. Dang critters. Anyhow, I'll get through.
