Had to share this....

Thursday, April 01, 2010

I went to the dr. today. I actually WENT to the appt. I had set up. lol I hate going to the dr. even though I've been needing to for quite awhile. I have been diagnosed with venous insufficiency in my lower left leg. It was caused from a brown recluse spider bite four years ago, and I've been suffering with it ever since. What a PITA. So I finally got brave enough to get some help for it. AAAAANNNND, I am finally asking forand getting help--pain meds--for the bursitus in my hips. I can't exercise enough to keep the venous insufficiency healed up unless I want to put up with the pain in my hips. So I either exercise and put up with the pain, or I don't exercise, gain more weight, and deal with open ulcerous wounds on my lower leg. It's a vicious cycle. And I've been doing this for four years. So today I took steps to rectify it and stop the cycle. I'm so proud of me!! ;) emoticon

    great you took that step, you need to take care of yourself, I can relate, I fell down my stairs monday morning and I am sure i have some broken ribs, but I know they cant do to much for ribs and my FEAR of my dr scales and him telling me AGAIN that I am over weight keeps me from going.
