Ouchy

I pulled a muscle in my right shoulder awhile back.  I am beginning to doubt it will ever mend!  I have a full range of motion — although some motions hurt more than others.  I also have a full range of ouch!

Yesterday OJM and I washed windows. Last night I couldn’t sleep for the pain in my shoulder. It’s throbbing right now. If I hurt my leg or ankle, we could get crutches , but what does one do when she’s hurt her shoulder? Not using it isn’t an option.

I can’t quit washing my hair, changing my clothes, lifting my fork (although I probably should), blowing my nose, etc. I am using my left arm more, but still my right arm needs to participate in daily life. Any suggestions short of tying it down?
