In addition to my other health woes, I have this wonky disc in my lower back that likes to slide if I'm not careful. I wear a back support 24/7 to help prevent this, but every now and then... So yesterday, out it goes. Oh, not lifting or maneuvering a heavy object mind you, but putting on my damn socks!

Well in addition to being quite painful, it also necessitates I walk with a cane. Now the way the disc moved, the cane is most effective in my left hand. Ah, but there's a catch. I have tendinitis in my left wrist and that's really been acting up lately. So at the moment, it's a close race which hurts more. Think the back is edging out the wrist though. :eek:

We all have come or will come to that if we want to live eternally. Buddha realized it at an early age. I understand it now. My teeth are leaving me, but no problem, I have a dentist as my son-in-law.

Oh, teeth were the something just before Thanksgiving. Cracked a molar eating walnuts! Ended up getting a root canal and crown. That's only the 3rd time I've been to a dentist in my life. Last time was 34 years ago. Still have all my teeth, but 2, counting the dead one I have now with a crown on it.

Then just after Christmas, I tore a tendon in my left wrist playing guitar! Still wearing a brace for that. On the bright side, though my back is still not 100%, having to use a cane with my left hand, seems to be relieving my tendinitis. Ah, can't wait for the next adventure! :D

Lo and behold, the barrage of antibiotic and anti-fungals seem to be working! May have dodged a bullet there. Docs were talking circumcision. No simple surgery at my age! :eek:

You got that right. Between my late mom's ailments, my own and internet research, I'm almost a qualified practitioner! LOL
