Just Call Me Sherlock

After some serious sleuthing I have discovered the reason for my sore neck/back.
THIS IS NOT ME! (sadly)

It was sore earlier in the year - eased off a bit and now has been sore for the past month.
So painful I considered acupuncture.

I blamed stress from having Son #1 driving a motorcycle down the highway
and, I was blaming age -I think my doctor was too.

I didn't go for acupuncture and stayed with physiotherapy.
My physiotherapist seems to be about 19 years old but I do have confidence in him, and he hasn't asked me to get naked, or shirtless, so that's a good thing.

The pain is interfering with gardening a bit, I dig for 15 minutes then sit down and whine for 20.

Last night the big hammer of  ah ha! hit me and I now know the reason for my pain.

A standard transmission vehicle paired with a 16 year old pretty new driver.

Here's how it goes from stop to first on an incline:

When he backed over the bridge last night, at the end of our lesson, he could feel me tense up and said "mom, maybe you should have a drink before we go driving"

Such a wise 16 year old....

Yep...I remember that too. Oh, it was just yesterday. literally. Kinda.
Um, I think you should have a shot of wine before driving with him. And the gardening? 15 minutes of digging followed by 10 minutes of wining. That'll do it.
good luck.

ps. aren't all heath care professionals 19 these days? Doogie Houser??? yep.

You people with these "old kids" are scaring me. Please don't tell me that I'm in store for pain!
And that's not you in the first photo? Are you sure?
