Woe Is Me

I give up. I made an appointment for my shoulder. Trying to avoid going to the "doctor" that I dislike so much, I have been waiting patiently for my O'Bama insurance card to arrive. But, I find myself unable to escape the constant pain. Sitting, standing, or lying down I can't seem to get into a position that is without pain. Miserable describes me perfectly.

I fiddle around and manage to accomplish a few things, but nothing significant. I want to be doing something, anything. I have treated myself to a Rehab Addict marathon today. I just love her! She doesn't smash perfectly good stuff to renovate. And .... she saves everything and finds new uses for the stuff. The bad part about watching this she is that it motivates me to do stuff. And I can't.

Time for more Ibuprofen. Woe is me, woe is me. I am not a good patient.

Glad you are going to the doctor. My wife didn't want to go for her shoulder either. It would get a little better and then get worse again but never heal all the way. I was glad she finally had it looked at. Hope your appointment goes well for you and you get better soon!

I'm a little woe but not as woe as you. Hope your appointment is very need an anti inflammatory and maybe a cortisone shot would be the answer. Anyway, my hubby loves the rehab addict but I fear it may be for other reasons than her rehabbing. take care.

I hope they can rebuild you as good as the Bionic Woman. But without surgery, like they fixed my son's broken elbow, a closed reduction, no cutting, just jamming that dislocated segment of bone back to where it should have been, not laying parallel to the main bone it broke off of.

Oh. That's probably too much information. I hope you feel better soon.

I had a frozen shoulder. The doc said, "What would you do if you lived in a third world country? You would HAVE to move it, so start moving it." When I said I couldn't, he sent me to therapy and they MADE me. But I feel so much better now, and I hope you will, too. Sending healing thoughts your way. By the way, the young therapist said, "Oh this happens to lost of women your age for no apparent reason." I wanted to slug him with my good arm... for no apparent reason!
