Yesterday morning I awoke to knots in my left trapezius. I haven’t been to the gym in a week because The ‘Pro (that’s what we are calling my anti-whatevers medicinals now, you people, The ‘Pro) leaves me feeling goofy and hardly able to get ready first thing, much less run a couple miles in a loop or do hanging tucks or various and sundry shit that involves stuff like concentration and coordination. Since I in fact haven’t been to the gym, I was puzzled. The medication is anti-everything, to include anxiety and depression (it might even be a little racist and misogynistic too, ar-ar), so how do I have stress knots?

Lying on my side, I turned my head to Maxim, who was behind me.

“Hey, I need you to throw me an elbow; my shoulder’s got golf balls in it.”

As he was doing so, I said, “I don’t understand: I’m medicaaaaaated nowwwwww, I’m not supposed to have knotttsssss.”

“Yeah,” he responded mildly, “and you’ll never stub your toe again and when your ice cream falls off the cone, it will not hit the ground; it’ll float mid-air until you’re able to retrieve it and put it back.”

“Ohhhhh, fuck youuuuu.”

So, first round of The ‘Pro done with. I don’t necessarily know how to gauge things on a pass/fail basis, because most people are on these types of meds full time. I will say, however, that the only way I knew I was starting this week was the sudden and fierce appearance of one lone pimple midway between the left corner of my mouth and my chin.

I wasn’t unreasonable and homicidal, so the intended result was achieved. I still feel not-quite-myself, but I’ve yet to suss out whether that is a good or bad thing. I will ruminate on it further and report back to you. There are definite positives and definite negatives. I’m aiming for a bubble bath sometime this weekend; the whole point of that bath will be to consume most of a bottle of wine and weigh the pros and cons. Oh, and a hardcore facial.

So, wheee.

    To your relief (and mine too, I reckon), I did not drow.

    Or drown, either.
