How I Cured My Aches and Pains
I hurt my neck the other day. I could barely move and was taking ibuprofen like crazy and smelled of Tiger Balm. All I wanted to do was lay in bed, but I couldn't because I was not able to get back up (Who knew you used your neck muscles to get out of bed?). When I did lay down, I had to roll out of bed and hope I landed on my hand and knees to get back up.
To stay busy and help manage the pain, and as a reason to cave in to recent cravings, I decided to make my favorite brownies. After stirring, baking, and then finally eating them, I certainly did feel better. I'm not sure if it was the cold packs, hot packs, or pain killers, but I'm giving all the credit to sweet tooth gratification.
Sure, my neck is still sore, but I've got some amazing brownies to help me feel better!
