Hocus Pocus!

I'm out of focus!! In almost every way possible. I have been a very remiss blogger, I've been lax in my food journal, I've been terrible about exercise, I've paid no attention to my water intake, and in general, I'm much crabbier than usual, too!!

My blogging intentions are always good.... I'm going to sit down and read everything, and comment as often as possible. But recently, I can't stand sitting still long enough to do a good job of that. I've tried using the Crackberry, but I'm not skilled enough to make that work efficiently. I am reading blogs with the Crackberry, but commenting is rather complicated for my techno-challenged self. I may have to break down and get a laptop, particularly if I'm going to get my knee replacement this fall.

My trip to the chiropractor yesterday was interesting, to say the least. I think he might possibly have broken my butt "massaging" it. The pain, as he continued to press harder and harder, was almost unbearable. Then he worked on my "Bladder Meridian" (or something like that) with some acupressure. I had a moment of calm when he used the Cold Laser, but then it was back to the torture chamber for the spasm in my calf muscle. As we were ending, and he was trying to get back into my good graces, he said "Boy, you are really gummed up." I assume that is a technical "chiropractical" term, right? But seriously, GUMMED UP??? Could he not have used something that made it sound as seriously awful as it feels? Oh, and just to "loosen" up said gum, he sold me some Magnesium tablets. Apparently Calcium tightens muscles and Magnesium loosens them.....therefore, I should be feeling relief momentarily. LIAR!!!! This morning was the absolute worst morning yet!! Hubby Dearest happened to still be here when I made my way downstairs in tears. He asked if I really thought this was going to help, and all I could mumble was that I had hope!

Regardless, I am determined to get out for at least a short walk this afternoon. We are finally having moderate temps, and I'm tired of walking laps around the house or using the dreadmill. I did wander out to the deck for a moment or two yesterday, just to get some more fresh air.

I do apologize for the whining tone of recent posts, but I simply cannot get loosened up and am tired of feeling crappy and crabby. I am, however, going to try and be more positive, and work myself back into a groove. I certainly appreciate all of the blog friends I've found online, and hopefully, I'll be back in the game very soon. Until then, please accept my apologies for being a big baby.


  1. Bless your heart, I know how spasms feel and I don't blame you for being crabby. Now Gummed up is a bit harsh isn't it. Start moving just a bit and you'll start feeling better about the eating part. Hope he doesn't torture you anymore.

  2. Good for you on getting out!! And whining is always allowed, we all do it :)Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Ouch! Gummed up Bum... that shounds serious!! ;)

    Take care of yourself and get better soon. Wine away - this is YOUR space!

  4. I'm sorry you're having so much pain and such a hard time with the focus. I totally understand...and never apologize for anything you post....your blog is to get it ALL out and know that we care and understand! :)

  5. Please tell me that your adjustment consisted of more than a butt massage and some cold laser therapy.
    Email me your set of symptoms and I will try to figure out what is going on. Its not the greatest way to get to the bottom of it but they may be missing some key ingredients to a proper diagnosis. Besides....it's free!
