I've been fighting some debilitating pain in my neck, shoulder and painting arm for quite some time. Over the past year, physic, massage and finally surgery just a few weeks back seem to have all been the voodoo I needed to take a step in the right direction. I'll be honest. It's been really frustrating not to be able to paint my heart and soul out as quickly as I would like to, and it has been worrisome building up to the surgery. Ten years ago, I had a small cyst on the back of my neck removed. Wouldn't you know it - I'm in that rare 1-2% of "yep...it can grow back". Ten years later, this nasty thing decided to make a return appearance but in a larger form, and it has been causing a lot of health issues. We have all been a bit worried about how it would go...doing everything to make it as easy as possible and hope for the best after surgery. There's been a lot of men around this house pretending they are Arnold..."It's just a too-mah!"
