Hope you are able to get things done and feel better soon.

That sounds like something that has happened to me twice. In both cases the doctor said that it was probably salt that had crystallized on a nerve. It took several days to go away.

My dog just had something of the sort in this neck. Sodium and calcium build up. Low grade pain killers and time. Gotta work itself out, break it all up and absorb it.

Three weeks ago I was taking 3-5 hour-long exercise classes a week, walking up a down our very steep streets, driving around to run all our errands, helping out a couple of elderly friends twice a week. Now I have no idea when I'll be able to get back to any of this (well, the surgeon said i can try driving in an empty parking lot and start on the street when I feel secure in my speed from foot on accelerator to brake (It would be my right leg). I read a lot, but am not big on TV. I've gotten back to doing most of my household chores (except gardening, not steady enough for our rough, slanted, terraced yard). But what I am able to do exhausts me, so I drift off to sleep during the day, then am up all night. I'm still sleeping on the couch because I'm only sleeping a few hours a night, and that in one-hour increments. No reason to keep my husband awake and have him grouchy the next day.

I'm a person who's rarely bored, but I am literally becoming bored to tears of frustration. I'm trying to pick up an old hobby (beadwork) to ease it a little.

Sorry for going on ....
you have every right to be bored. being sick is a pain in the you kow what.

Vent #1 I hate AC. Even though I need it to breath. I had to make a run to the corner store. It was so hot and muggy out. I get to the store and the AC is going full blast. Instantly my nose starts to run like the rapids of a river. I had a fistful of tissue with me. I grab it fast and within seconds it was soaking.

Vent #2 I hate Friday night television. I am getting tired of the Olympics. What is left for sports are the ones I am not interested in. And there are never any good shows on Friday night. They are all reruns. So I have Churchill on. A rerun. Even the Olympics has a rerun on right now. It is about the Scrugg girl with the torn ligaments at the summer Olympics that gave America the gold in Atlanta.

Vent #3 I am tired of being old. It seems as soon as I get one medical problem under control or solved, another one pops up. When does it end. Old age is hard work and no fun. I have patches of all white hair and the rest is salt and pepper grey. I want it to go to ALL white. I am tired of aches and pains that I have no control over. I want to be able to do cartwheels again and other gymnastic stuff that I did as a child and teenager. I want to go on long bike trips. I want to go Pioneer camping. I want to be able to live on a farm and do farm work like I used to. I want to get up early and go outside and hear the birds just wakiing up in the fresh air of the country side. I don't like being old.

Okay. Venting done with. I now feel better. Thank you for listening.

It's better than the alternative.
