ugh. I’m officially an “old person.” My bodily aches and complaints are piling up. This hurts, that hurts, that aches, this doesn’t work. Bleah. The cause of my strokes has been eradicated. And now? Now I am home with food poisoning and a sudden acute return of my TMJ (I can’t chew, and can’t bite down hard because of an incredible pain in my jaw joint–it hurts to yawn). Between the two, I’m doing the one thing I haven’t been able to do for a couple months: lose weight. OMG. I am boring myself. But why don’t you settle down for a cup of tea–and then we can share. And then we can be TWO “old people” sharing their aches and pains. I remember as a child, listening to my parents sit down with their friends and finding it remarkable that such a large portion of their chatter focused on their bodily aches and pains. Why are you always talking about what hurts and aches, I used to ask my mother. She would giggle in response. I don’t have a daughter to call my on my bullshit. So you can come on over and talk endlessly about your aches and pain right here. 😛
I am such a whiner.
