Dr. Punky, age 4, dressed in princess shoes and purple jeweled gloves recently gave me a thorough examination. It included things like listening to my breathing and looking in my ears. She gave me four shots and announced "You have an itis." I asked if the shots would help. All she said was "You need to see a second doctor." Never question the doctor.
I like to keep people up to date on what is going on with me. Growing up, my family always knew if something hurt, whether I had a hangnail, or how I was healing from a past incident. Well, it appears I’m doing it again.
My ITB is tight. My toe hurts. My ankle… My back… Ya-da, ya-da. Enough is enough. I am going to make a concerted effort to keep the pain updates to a minimum. Let me just say this: something will hurt. Perhaps I should listen to Dr. Punky and go to a second doctor.
Disclaimer: I am making no promises that I will be able to keep my fingers from typing “woe is me” updates.
