Working through the pain.....
Wednesday, December 07, 2011
I'vereally been getting my emotions under control. I have been stooping myself and thinking before i eat, even eating smaller portions. I am trying to be more active and it feels good!
Well it FELT GOOD!!!
Yesterday I woke up feeling stiff; shrugging it off I continued getting dressed, rushing around to make it out of the house on time! I was all set to go, pup and kid in the truck....just had to grab my coffee cup and pour myself one for the road. I reached up and the worst pain it my right side ribcage! Holy crap it about knocked the wind out of me! I dropped my cup and took a couple of deep breaths, which made it hurt even worse!! It took me a few minuets to get myself together enough to get out the door!
I made it to work, the whole way my side was killing me! I complained of the pain and my co-workers threw out all kinds of conditions and possibilities. Kinda freak me out! LOL! I felt stupid complain so much about a "side ache" but it hurt so bad!! I figured i knew what a pulled muscle felt like and this was way worse! I ended not coming back to work after lunch and headed to the doctors office. I waited for almost 3 hours!! Pissed me off! I was in pain, hungry, cold, had to pick up my kid, my pup was in the truck and i had a school meeting thing to go to! UGH!!
I was finally seen and the doctor (after some painful pokes and squeezes) determined 3 hypotheses! His top one is that I have separated the inercostal muscle from the ribcage. #2 is that i will break out with shingles any day. The third is something is wrong with my heart. He said my lungs sound clear and are oxygenating my blood just fine, and since he can cause me pain by squeezing and poking me that his money is on the intercostal muscle. I have to wait a week to see if the pain subsides; if not then they will start looking at my heart.
See what working out does to a fat girl....this shiz is gunna kill me! Haha!! I am still determined, I am doing good with my food, drinking my water, taking my vitamins and still walking the dog for 15 mins three times a day......it hurts like a MO FO but I'm taking the damn walks (as described in 12/1 post). I actually have to talk myself out of doing the wii with my girl, or even busting out a zumba video. Even though i can't work out it still feels good to know and FEEL like i want to!! So here's to me.......I'm giving myself a pat on the back and one hell of an ATTA GIRL for working through the pain.
LIFE IS GOOD!
