That's nasty, PAG. Hope there's a speedy recovery! Did you get an X-ray?

No, didn't get it checked. I've sprained it before and it feels the same as that time. It's not swelling at all and is fealing only a little achey (maybe a 3 out of 10) so long as I don't bend it too far, straighten until it's locked or twist it. My elbows are a little odd and bend backwards a little just naturally so I'm pretty sure I just over-extended it. And it's a little better than it was when I first hurt it so I'm thinking (hoping) I lucked out and it's just minor.

You still may want to check it. I broke both 5th metatarsals, one on each foot, on 2 separate occasions, and since I had no pain, swelling or bruising, put off x-rays for both. Finally went in, and after bone doc looked at the x-rays, he said, both times, "You broke that sucker!". I am such a clutz.

Just sayin'.

I've over-extended both elbows...not fun. And with the compressed ulnar nerve in my left elbow...I'm lucky I can hold a pen, let alone anything else.

Sorry you are hurting Jess. Hugs!!!

What could be worse than an alien giraffe with a sore elbow?? Take it easy, and stay purple.

I'm happy to report it's doing better today. Still need to take it easy but should be fine in a few days.

getting old is the pits. i had several things scheduled for today, clean sheets , etc. i unloaded the dishwasher. then i said "self" i really don't have the energy for all this today. so i have done nothing. makes me feel guilty. i am sure i will have more of these days as i get older. gotta learn to live with the guilt.

I used to have the same problem with the guilt. I had to keep reminding myself I'm retired. The only person I have to answer to is myself.

Feeling guilty about something like that is not being nice to yourself. Stop that, my friend!

So glad to hear that!

Babe, you have earned the right to do nothing! No reason to feel guilty. You have been so productive with your sewing, you need a vacation!
