Brace (Yourself)

Immediately after surgery and for the first few days, the neck brace felt supportive and comfortable/comforting. Now I feel like shredding it to pieces with my bare nails like an angry cat. ("Tell us how you really feel, Frida..."). It reminds me too much of being bodycasted. I feel trapped. I can't breathe. My chin hurts. My skin hurts. I'm feeling a little better, but this contraption is annoying the cursewords out of me.

My shoulder's been hurting a lot, thus not much typing or reading. I've had a lot of great blog ideas spinning around in my head. I feel like I can't get any support for for one shoulder/neck muscle and like it's stretched like a thin wire. Wish I could take a muscle relaxer.
