When this little bit of unpleasantry happened, a couple of weeks ago, my Lizard took its sweet time recuperating.
I had been on my second "artist's date," (I am doing the Julia Cameron's Artist's Way, right now) and
it had taken me some effort to get out of work mode and go play on a Friday afternoon.
Then this. (link takes you to Elephant Journal, where this article lives)
Wishing you an unapologetically great day.
