Stiff neck = tigers

When I went to bed last night was the first that I realized that my neck hurt. Then I slept poorly and had two disturbing dreams that both involved tigers. Strange, as I've rarely given tigers a 2nd glance, although I do love to see the white tigers at zoos.

The first dream had a Peeping Tom, then I was sequestered in a dorm type building with no cell-phone. Somehow I escaped & was then chased by a lion & a tiger, making it to my car within just a hairs-breath of being caught by the tiger. I'm already forgetting the 2nd dream, but it also had a rampaging tiger in it and I was running from it again.

I can turn my neck both ways today but it aches deep inside on the right.

Maybe it's the turn in the weather, as we got about 1 1/2 inch of snow during the early morning.

Better do something to my hair before I go out for a late lunch today with a friend. I must go water my parent's plants & wind their clock too today. They are on a Maranatha trip (mission/building) to Africa for 3 weeks. My Dad also asked me to call my 3 siblings to let them know that all is well with them in Africa.

Thanks for these flavours of what is another world for most of us Christine - good luck with the dreaming and the neck pain. Tilda x


It was the perfect snow to make a snowman, not too dry or too wet, but I didn't feel good enough to make one today. It'll freeze again tonight, and get up to the lower 40's tomorrow. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.


Dreams are strange. I had weird ones last night,this is a common practise with me i'm afraid. I can't remember the last time i slept more than 2 hrs at a time. I woke up with cramp by my ear. Hope your neck pain soon settles down.



I always have very weird dreams the night that I take my MTX and sometimes the following night too. Hope your neck feels better today. Take care xxxx


I find Naproxen gives me really vivid dreams. I wake up feeling like I've been on an adventure. Also throughout both of my pregnancies I had dreams about being chased by talking lions. I remember reading it was linked to a fear of change. x


Christine, Would love to help you make a snowman. My two brothers and I used to live outdoors at this ime of the year and make snow forts aand snomen and snowballs to throw at each other. It was wild, but I don't remember ever being cold. However, I can not stand being cold now!

Your parents are to be commended for doing such a project. God bless them, Loretxx


Hey Christine

Your dreams are fascinating. Someone once said to me that regardless of the dream try to remember how you are feeling in the dream - even if its a scary situation are you in control.

Did you get your neck sorted today? HOpe its not too bad tonight.

We have had no snow this winter so far but i suppose we could get some later this month but by and large it has been great, very mild though very windy.

Looking forward to next post from America.


My neck feels better, but not tip-top yet. This could actually be good, since I see my Dr tomorrow morning.

Usually, I'm pretty in control of my RA, or just one joint acts up. I probably complain too much, but I have found that if I don't, my family won't ask how I am. They just don't think to ask. It's hard to live alone.

Have a great day.
