Aches and Pains

As the year comes to a close, I thought it would be fun(ny) to share my aches and pains that have been plaguing me. My body has had enough, apparently. I am "only" in my early forties, and yet I seem to have gone to hell in a hand-basket, and in short order! 

Late this summer, one of my molars broke. And then it broke again in the fall! This freaks me out so much. I now have to have this tooth "cut" and a cap put on it. Oh em gee! Teeth are scary, aren't they? 

A few weeks ago, my back went out and stayed out for nearly a month! I could barely get in and out of my car. I couldn't bend over to put my shoes on, and could barely get dressed and undressed. It was nuts how out of whack I was! I made several trips to the chiropractor, which tells you how bad I was, because I don't actually like going to the chiropractor. My back still isn't "right," but it is definitely better than it was. It was especially annoying, however, because I had to give up my little jog that I had built up to. Now I have to start over... Waaaaaaaah! Jogging is not easy for me, so this is discouraging. But I will prevail! Except...

Both of my feet have problems! On one, the heal hurts - likely plantar fascitis. I have had this in the past, but it seems to have resurfaced. The other foot I injured a few years ago and have just been ignoring the pain, but it has gotten to the point that I am unable to do what I want to do, and so with the start of the new year, I need to have it fixed. EEEEEECK! 

When my kiddos were babies, I came into contact with a tick, and it gave me a bacterial infection throughout my body very similar to Lyme Disease, and let me tell you, my joints and body have not been the same since that infection. I am incredibly grateful it wasn't, in fact, Lyme Disease, although at times I wonder if it wasn't... But I am healthy for the most part, and so very grateful to be able to do pretty much whatever I want to do. I am ashamed for feeling sorry for myself.

When push comes to shove, I am incredibly grateful for my health and the health of my children and husband. I used to be a tough cookie, and it is humbling to have any health issues at all, but mine are so minor, they don't even count, frankly, and if I'm a little creaky, then all the more reason to do what I can to be healthy, right? Except give up chocolate... I can't (won't) give up chocolate!
