I have been really stressed out lately. I mean, REALLY stressed. There was a huge fundraiser for work that I was in charge of, my new supervisor started a just a few weeks ago, I am in two weddings this summer where I am planning showers and bachelorette parties, and the list goes on and on with my biggest stresses being work related. So, my wonderful mother, recognizing that I was going a little crazy offered to pay for a massage for me. Hooray!
I went on Thursday to get my massage from a local spa and it was amazing. But there was one weird thing...
When the masseuse got to massaging my butt area I felt a very sharp pain. Ouch! I had never felt anything like this before. I said, "Wow, that hurts! What could I have done to strain my muscle that way?" The masseuse said that that area is a place where some people store stress about money or job performance. Well, I don't know much about how stress is stored but with everything going on at work right now you bet I've been stressed about performance! It made sense to me.
Who knew! I can now officially say that work has caused a literal pain in my @$$. Go figure.
