Damn, FF! That sucks. I would like to be paid for a lack of effort too. Wouldn't you? That's easy money. As it is, I'm being paid for being sick, which, quite honestly, isn't my preferred way of making money. But it pays the bills. Barely.

Maybe your physical therapy will help. Did they give you a post-op plan?

I am similar Dan, Workers Comp for now then they will retrain me I think. I will be happy with that to get back to making a buck to be honest

Plans are made to be changed Deb. Getting the infection sent everything upside down and when I am unwell, my hand explodes with heat

Honestly, I am whining because I still have a hand, unlike DC and I can still walk around fine unlike our Dan. I am just not me so I whine, I will end up OK at the end of it all mate, thanks for caring  :-*

It's a bugger when life makes you feel 'less than your self'.  But I'd lay money on Fly  bouncing back.  It usually takes longer than you expect though.  My eldest lass is having to cancel a couple of her planned long distance charity walks because of injuries from a recent 'shunt' in her car.

But the physio's working, slower than she'd like but it's working, and she has a shiny new car to drive to her appointments.

Just stay away from billabongs whilst your down, okay?

 ;D ;D

That sort of jolt gets the neck and back good Gyp.

I dislike the way it compounds, like my wrist is unhappy doing work it is not used to doing and my shoulder is frozen because of how I sleep with the crook arm. It goes on but it will all work out in the end mate.

I wish her a speedy recovery and she has youth on her side  :-*

I didn't know it got infected FF. You better drink some essiac and get lots of turmeric in your diet. Tumeric is great for inflammation.


I had no idea how DC lost his arm. Dayum!

I really don't have anything to complain about. My body is doing weird things, aches and pains, indigestion, and a few recurring things that I keep ignoring.

AND I'm winning!

And here I sit whining about not having a disease yet. God, I'm insufferable.


But winning, so perhaps I can stop whining now.

Oh, quit laughing. You will hurt yourself.

The big C! Yikes. I'm glad DC caught it in time and won.

Scary stuff. I think I'm becoming a hypochondriac. :o Everything that hurts regularly for no good reason might be that. ::) :o :-[ :-\ ???

Had my bloodwork done a few months ago, everything was fairly good. My red blood cells were slightly elevated. Thick blood, I guess. Need to have another liver panel soon. Who knows what we were exposed to with that crap under this house for months, which was probably here before we even got here last May.
Yuck. Wish it to the cornfield

Time for a subject change.


I'm winning again.
 And Patti is going to laugh herself silly(er).  ;D

You need to find a yoga class or tai chi or at least some good herbs to help that anxiety mate. Gotta get that glass half full.

I could rattle off my health issues but that has been life long. Went to an insurance doc last week and he said what the hell is going on in that body. He said "so you have arthritis in your hips" I said that is one they didn't tell me  ;D ;D

If I don't dwell on them all, they don't seem to dwell on me, works for me so I am cool with that.  ;)

That's a good way to look at it, Fly.

I remember a female doctor at our group practice, signing off for another six months of 'stay alive' pills.  "I've been looking through your notes. Modern medicine is amazing.  Fifty years ago you would have been dead."

On another occasion she said "With genetics like yours you may well outlive all of us, despite the odds."

That last comment is the one which sticks in my mind.

I don't usually dwell on things like that. I convince my self I can will my body better. I'm sure it's just the move and the other stuff - lots of stuff to sort through -still.

My liver enzymes came back as alcoholic. The doctor asked me how much I drank and I answered honestly, nothing but coffee and herbal tea with a bit of water at the gym. But I do cook with wine.

She said, "Does that mean you have a couple glasses of wine while you make dinner?"

hahahahaha

I had to go 30 days without any alcohol, switch my pre-workout concoction since that might have had something in it to give a false reading, and come back in 30 days. My liver panel was normal again. So it might have been the pre workout which isn't really an issue, it freaks out the machine doing the reading, not the liver. It might have been a virus. But I'm back to cooking with wine.

and winning of course.
