What about sam? If he never punched me I would not be on this site, FACT.
So why cant u blame him
IT'S NOT HIS FAULT. All he did was punch you in the neck. He's not making sit on the computer, and type your little stories. THAT WAS YOUR CHOICE.
Not his. All he did was punch you, we've all been punched it's not that bad.
agreed, we have all been punched.
i have been punched in many places but forgotten about them almost immediately because they weren't for no reason in a completely vulnerable area of the body.
i've been attacked by drunks before but they're drunk, sam was perfectly sober and he still did this.
I am really sorry about your encounter in your earlier days. I can remember when I used to ride the school bus I would sit in the back and wait for the driver to hit a certain bumb or hill in the road on her route. So me and a bunch of other kids would do what any other kid would do back then (you got it) bounce up and down to be thrown in the air. well one day when I did that the top of my head the metal frame of the bus in full thrust as i went upward and from the base of my skull to the top of my should was a very sharp and pain CRACK! and i just stopped and grabbed the back of my neck in terror scared i broke something. ever since then my neck has never been the same so DJ that is something we have to deal with and im sorry a incident happend to you like that but in life things happend to people that are just FUBAR (F'd up beyond all recognition)
Its because youre freaking out. I get it on planes. Calm the h* * l down and go feed the homeless or something.
I know you want to help me but this is the thing no one seems to know my problem, I don;t understand why, there must be SOMEONE out there that can help me.
It's anxiety you need to get over YOU'RE AN A* * * T FOR GOD'S SAKE! I use to have anxiety attacks out of the blue for no reason, and then they stopped. I was fine, and I did get a lot of saliva build up when I had an attack (they weren't serious or anything).
wow cool…. i know its hard to express feelings online but im genuinely relieved and surprised someone else has this saliva problem.
how do you get rid of it?
and did you have problems swallowing and drinking, that it would still stay in your mouth?
I don't know the anxiety problems just stopped by themselves. I could tell when an attack was coming along because I'd get short of breath really easily. Then I wouldn't be able to breathe for a couple seconds then I could breath, but would be dizzy I fell one time cause of it. After the attack was over my throat would fill with saliva I'd drink as much as I could. I found bread (toast) helped a lot with the saliva when I'd have them, and lots of water/ juice. I no longer have them anymore this was like 3~4 years ago.
yeah im the same!
bread, cookies, even ice cream helps.
any idea what this condition is called or any links on it?
would be much appreciated, cheers
My two sides are most certainly asymmetric. My right thumb cracks much harder and feels infinitely better when cracked than my left. When I twist my neck to the left different joints crack than when I do it to the right and so on. I can only crack my back twisting to the left. But I can't write with my left hand, so I don't expect both sides of me to be perfectly in sync.
This is very interesting, as I had tried to give up cracking for new year (and failed miserably), but this article actually shows that jointcracking is not harmful at all. Indeed I believe it to be beneficial and find it helps me relax and wind down. I play a lot of rugby and guitar, and I only feel like I can play at maximum capability if I have cracked all my joints and stretched.
Nowadays, it cracks where it needs to crack. I went through a stage where twisting it to the left would crack the right side and vice versa, which is still true to some extent but nowadays it depends on which joints are locked up. That's true of up and down, as well as left and right. Some spots in my neck are more predictable (around the middle, mostly) but once in a while the base of the neck will go off and sometimes it feels as though the joint right behind my skull is "activated". I've even cracked my left jaw while making the neck-cracking twist - on most of those occasions I thought it was just another upper neck crack until I moved my jaw and felt it hinge more smoothly (if anyone out there gets what I mean…).
How often does it need to crack? Actually I'm going to create a new thread on this to explain in more detail..
NEEECK!! It's almost essential. I need the shock of it to jolt me into wakefulness. It's like starting the ignition on a twin-engined boat. Pull head to one side (normally the right side first). Crack. Left side activated. Pull to the left. Crack. Right side is on.
On days when I'm having a lie-in, I will also often, rather peculiarly, crack my toes repeatedly before getting up.
You must live a fairly charmed life if your greatest complaint is being punched in the neck six years ago. While I can sympathize, I too suffer neck pain (right? or is it just clicking?), why is it you don't take any of the advice offered all over this forum and, from what you have shared, other forums too?
I understand venting but, really, have you truly committed to getting better? Maybe you have become addicted to these little pity parties you're throwing for yourself.
You're at uni, forget about the petty nonsense that went on in high school and enjoy yourself. Go out and party, meet some girls (or boys) and try to get lucky. I guarantee you won't be thinking about your neck or Sam during that. You'll really kick yourself later if you spend all your time now worrying about something that happened in 9th grade.
And seriously, not to minimize your pain, but how bad could a punch in the neck really be? It couldn't be worse than the car that slammed into me when I was in high school. Thank g* d I didn't spend all of uni obsessing over the chronic pain it caused me. I went to a chiropractor once a week and took some pain killers if it started to act up and spent the rest of the time going to cla* s and having a good time.
Anyway I am not trying to be a ball buster here but take some time and think about it, think about exactly what you are getting out of holding on to all this pain and angst. Looks to me like nothing at all.
Take care, be well and for God's sake, go have some fun.
