My Computer On Drugs

...or maybe it's me!

I woke up after a horrible night's sleep and a very sore neck. Was I in a car wreck this weekend? Or was is just too much mosaics? All that looking down at the piece I'm working on has got my spine in a horrible tizzy.

But I'M ON IT. At this point, when I have a "flare up" I know what to do: heating pad, traction, and stretching. And drugs. When I say drugs, usually a few Advil is as crazy as I get. But this morning I round some samples a doctor had given me of muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories. Pained rebel that I am, I said, "Hell yeah" and swallowed.

And now I'm feeling slightly odd. Like I just took a hit of Nyquil. And when I type on my computer, my fingers are typing the words faster than they're appearing on screen. I think it's because I'm in my kitchen and I've got a weak signal in here. But it feels very trippy and sort of fun too. Or has the muscle called my brain just relaxed?
