holy crap this hurts

I am not accustomed to being in this much pain. My neck pain has gotten steadily worse since last weekend and now it just throbs and shoots pain down into my body and spasms. Sometimes when I teach I think I'm going to cry or throw up because it makes it so much more worse. But I can't cancel classes. And if I can just make it through one more week of this awful pain, the following week is my week off between sessions (no teaching!).

The irony is that this is the week I told the auto insurance company that I was closing the claim related to last year's auto accident. Treatment has been going on for 7 months and the accident was just too small to justify any further treatment. So I have to close the claim while in more pain than I have ever been in.

I talked to my doctor to find out what is the most ibuprofen I can safely take. He said I can take 600mg. Maybe even push it to 800mg. Friday is my next day off from teaching. There is nothing I can do but take a ton of ibuprofen all week until I get a rest on Friday. Then after teaching a class and a party on Saturday, I will get to rest for a week. Please wish me luck hanging in there!
