I’m concerned about my left thigh. It’s been slowly losing muscle tone over the last few years, but while I was on the couch the other night, the sight of it at a certain angle gave me a bad case of the worries.
My doctor never seems all too concerned when I bring it up, he just tells me to do my leg exercises and to stay as active as I possibly can, which has quadrupled since Asshat moved out.
In doctor speak, that means that there really isn’t all that much that he or I can do.
I’m already doing it. I walk until I just can’t, I force myself to do the exercises and I don’t always use my princess parking pass. (That’s what my daughter calls it.)
My right thigh is much meatier than the left, so I suppose that poor righty takes a beating since I’m putting most of my weight on it when I’m walking around. I can see and feel the bone on lefty, which is…hmm, let’s see…fucking freaky.
Stupid fibromyalgia. I got your number, you bastard.
I have other issues cropping up recently to tell the doctor about, so many that I’m going to have to make a list or I’ll forget. Nothing life-threatening, just painful little nuisances, like my right thumb that I’m positive has something crunching inside of it (ouch) and my lack of an appetite.
My daughter and I went to a thrift store yesterday and they had a scale. I was surprised to see that I’ve lost about 12 pounds since the last time that I weighed myself, which was sometime last month.
I’m eating right now just to survive. That’s what happens to me when I’m stressed out and emotionally erratic, I’ll just forget until my stomach groans painfully at me to put something in there or I start to feel dizzy because of my low blood sugar.
And then I eat a cookie and say, shush you.
I finally went to the eye doctor this past Monday. I decided to just do it (I’ve been putting it off) and get the bifocals, so I can read my medicine bottles without peering over my frames and squinting.
I also have the early stages of cataracts. The eye doctor said we’ll just keep an eye on it.
Get it? Haha!
Eh, I thought it was funny.
I love my new frames (neon green and black.) I’m trying to give myself lots of little things to be excited about and look forward to. I should have them within the week. It’ll be nice to see clearly again.
I’m seeing many things more clearly these days and now I’ll be doing it in style.
