I’m going to the doctor today.
Well, hopefully today. I still have to set up the appointment. Hopefully the clinic opens soon.
Yesterday, my back had really started to ache and just throb, so I asked some friends to give me a blessing (thanks Dave and Ty!). I had called my most-beloved home teachers, but they were out. I adore our home teachers, but that is a post for another day.
During the blessing, I was counseled to seek assistance from the medical community. Immediately after the blessing, my back stopped aching, but the other side of my chest starting constricting and aching. Since then, I’ve had a lot of pain when breathing; I can’t sit, stand, lay, or do cartwheels; and I’m just in a lot of pain. I don’t say this lightly, but when I finally admit to the pain, I’m in serious pain. Pain is something that has never bothered me, so when it finally does….
I’m personally hoping for one of two results:
- Give me an insta-cure that takes care of the problem immediately.
- Shoot me and put me out of my misery.
If neither of those are available, I guess I’ll settle for some pain meds and some direction on relieving the pain.
What a way to spend your birthday! 🙂
Oh, on a related note, apparently falling is contagious. I’ve learned that over the last week, my brother fell, my sister fell, and my dad fell all within about two days of each other. I’m the only one with a break, but all were pretty good falls as near as I can tell.
Of course, this all continues to build my case for moving to the tropics where such hazardous things like “ice” don’t exist.
