The season has officially begun!
We are two weeks in and it hasn't been easy. My neck/shoulder decided to go wonky when i woke up on my birthday morning last week. I'm not sure what it could be because the pain is a sharp constant throb from my neck into the top part of my shoulders. I have a hunch that it might be a pinched nerve. The pain really peaked yesterday during rehearsals. I did some move with my arms over my head and i had instant burning pain. I felt light headed and nauseous. Then i couldn't move my left arm. It was such a scary moment and everyone came rushing over to me to ask what was wrong. Working with such a great group of people really made me feel cared for. They all worked together to help me get upstairs and put these pain relief patches on. (those ladies from Japan have these awesome patches that look like giant bandaids that release medicine into where ever you put them) After some advil and laying on my back i felt ok. I'm a tough cookie when it comes to pain, but that was unbearable!
Anyway, besides that little drama things have been ok. LOTS of new people. LOTS of new and GOOD people this season. Looking around the room at the new talent really makes me realize i need to push myself this year. Not that i don't do that usually, but i feel an extra push to keep up with these crazy turners and jumpers. I need to take what i'm good at and excel.
Our first show is this coming Saturday. Much rest and relaxation this weekend to get better for then.
My best to you all.
Ps where is August going??
