being over the hump is starting to get to me. even in my best efforts to avoid cliches, its true, your body starts to fall apart over time. my shoulder has been acting up for the past week or so and now my neck has decided to throw in the towel. it could of course be worse, i don't want to tempt fate and venture a guess at how it would be worse. i can simply say it could be. at this point a trip to the doctor's in the morrow seems unavoidable. here's hoping my body's brakes don't fail on the way. but in light of recent failures i wouldn't count on it.
