Had the worst pain ever last night. Felt like a hot poker shot through my right lower back. Feeling better and atleast I know what the cause was. I passed a huge kidney stone. It still hurts but less. Probably have some kidney infection too.
Just glad it's not something more serious. Big relief!!!!!

I've passed stones before but much smaller ones, the pain was much worse this time.

Now there is one thing I don't have wrong with me. My kidneys are nice and healthy. Good enough for transplant.

I have a long list of messed up insides
My liver is perfect though!
They say God gives you problems you can handle, so I must be pretty bad a$$
I'm much better today
I'm not complaining, it could have been worse!

I'm not sure I'd have been happy with things getting slammed shut upon Dad's death. That would have made for some significant hassles for us as executors and trying to settle all the affairs. Glad that the laws here seem to be a little different than they are for you all.

No more vents for me today, I decided the most energetic thing I'm doing today is a quick grocery shop.
When a friend's dad died, her mom was the one who was declared dead. I can't remember how this happened. Anyway, she didn't know she was legally "dead" until she went to use her credit card to pay for her newspaper subscription and it was declined because the cardholder was deceased. Needless to say, she was not. It took six months to fix that. She's still alive today 10 years later.

My drivers license was up for renewal, so I went to the local DMV. OMG. Worst. Picture. Ever. The temporary is in black and white, I shudder to see the color one they send me. I'm gonna draw on a paper bag, or put a tiny flip up sticky note on it. Hideous.

Can't believe the woman who took it didn't show it to me and ask if I wanted a do-over. And I'm stuck with it for 5 years! Gah!

I once had the world's worst photo taken at Costco. I was looking at the black and white version of the photo. Then I found out that my Costco AMEX was going to use the same picture!

I got the AMEX card and the pic was great in colour. Phew. Maybe you will luck out too.

Sure hope so. I see myself everyday in the mirror, and I've never looked this scary, AFAIK. Thanks, TL!

My Costco card has the first picture taken with no teeth... Back when I was still getting used to them.

I'm due for a new drivers license thank goodness!!! My last one looks bloody aweful. I was underweight and had just shaved my head in support of my sister. Also had my glasses on. Makes me look like Eustace from Courage the cowardly dog
Last time I got pulled over the traffic officer said the person in the picture can't be me because it's an old man and I'm a young woman. I said some very colourful words that day
