I never thought of 30's as old. To be honest, I don't even think 90 is "old", ok, well maybe...but I turned 32 this past week and 3 days later, I had a doctor appointment. My appointment consisted of being told my height, which is a full INCH shorter than in previous years! Am I shrinking?? Also, I went in for neck and shoulder pain. My neck is locked, has been since Tuesday, my left shoulder has a point in it that has a pressure point that sends tingles down my arm when it's touched, not to mention there are many points along my back that scream when you touch them. I am sick of chronic neck and back pain, so I went in to have it checked out. I was a little apprehensive, I was thinking she would want to prescribe meds or call for an MRI. Nothing of the sort happened. She suggested I go to physical therapy. I walked out quite content with the plan! I also walked out feeling OLD. How is it possible to have daily aches and pains when I am not even considered middle aged yet? It's beyond me! Also, worth noting, I thought I was going nuts. I've had a sort of uncomfortable feeling in my left side. Like I have "something" inside of my abdomen near my rib cage, it's been feeling that way since my nephrectomy, and one day a few months ago, I felt around there, and noticed one of my ribs is loose. I thought I was nuts, thought NO WAY that's possible, but it IS possible and it DOES happen and my doctor confirmed my suspicions by feeling around where I showed her. She said there is one  that does infact feel a little bit loose. That's a tad unsettling, but it's not painful and I am so glad I am not losing my mind! Life is interesting. Never a dull moment around here. We like to keep it real :)


  1. if you keep having problems after a couple months of physical therapy go to a chiropractor. After months of PT nothing helped but a chiro had me better in a week.

    1. I was seeing a chiro 2-3 times a week for about 9 months, it made the pain worse :(

  2. I'm definitely one that prefers PT over chiro, but to each their own! Hopefully this clears up soon! And happy late birthday!


I love to hear what you have to say! Please feel free to post your thoughts!
