Broken Body

I'd been hitting the workouts very hard lately (heavy weights, high impact stuff) and initially it felt great.  But after a couple of months I seem to be getting injury after injury.  I'm going to sound like an old person now....  Ah, my left arm just below my deltoid has been strained for two months.  Last weekend I tweaked my left foot doing a spin dance thing and my right knee is screwed ever since I did a misaligned curtsy squat.  If I'd just slowed down and watched the instructors feet....  Now, with the nagging annoyances at home (we seem to argue endlessly about who's not pulling their weight, stupid!), I've got a pulled right neck.  Gosh.

And that's not all.  When I saw my periodontist last week, the assistant girl asked if I'd had any health changes since last year.  I always say my health is exemplary no matter what and I'm taking no drugs.  That just makes everything easier.  But this time I said everything was fine with my head area.  And then I mentally ran through the litany of problems I've had lately.  By the time the periodontist came around, I was complaining how everyone and their brother was nagging me over my breast ultrasound follow-up.  And he joined the chorus.  So, I've got that appointment next week.  Can't wait to get home and put some more heat on my neck.


  1. Yikes! Hope you get to feeling better soon.

  2. I am sorry. Injuries and illnesses back to back suck
