hanged like a chicken

Cute photo right? The bird I mean.

But the one below may not be to your liking.
I was diagnosed as suffering from cervical spondylosis in 2003. (If you're curious what it means, just click on the words.) For about a month I was in pain, sometimes intermittently and sometimes constantly. After about a year I had the first relapse in Jun/July 2004.

About two weeks ago, I had the symptom again and since last Monday was in constant pain in my left arm and behind my head. Most of the time I couldn't sleep and even the painkiller doesn't really help. Had my x-ray done yesterday which showed that the space between the 5th and 6th vertebrae of my neck of the left side had reduced and trapped/irritated the nerve. Had my first appointment with the specialist today and given a few days off work. Undergone physio where traction was applied (I called this "hanged like a chicken" as you can see from the photo) as this had helped previously to relieve the pain. So if you see my website not updated for a while, don't worry. I'm taking my rest.

Blue-eyed friend

Let me introduce you to my blue-eyed friend who can be found in my garden and in this case on the steps of my front door. I did not realise it had blue eyes until I took these photos.
