I have a hunch

You may wonder why I am posting so often these days after announcing that I was reducing my blogging schedule.

The reason is that I have more free time on my hands than usual and that's because my back pain got worse and is preventing me from doing much of anything.

After receiving a clean bill of health regarding my annual physical, I complained about my back to my doctor, so he sent me for x-rays. They showed no problems, so he sent me for physical therapy.

The therapist says that my back problems are due to Kyphosis. Good news is that she believes that therapy will help me.

After two sessions of physical therapy, I feel much better. The backache is greatly reduced and I will continue going to therapy for eight more sessions to work on my Kyphosis.

Meanwhile, I am cooling my high heels until I am finished with therapy.

The outfit I ordered from JustFab arrived in the mail today and I tried it on without my usual shapewear. The skirt fits, but the sweater may be too big, so sooner or later, I need to try it on over shapewear to determine whether to return the sweater for a smaller size.

And so it goes.

  1. Don't bee too quick to put your heels in hock waiting for your back to feel better. I have had herniated disks for 30 years. what kills my back is to stand flat footed. Waiting in line is difficult. Even last night at a cocktail party the standing was getting to my back.
    I found out years ago that elevating my heels changes the curvature of my spine. Flat footed my low back has to support the front of my body. Change the curve of the low back with heels and the pressure is removed from my low back. I first experienced this when I tried skiing for the first time after my back injury. Ski boots raise your heel and press your knees forward. My back felt better after a day in ski boots and it often feels better after spending some time in 2.5-3" pumps. It's worth a try and you have nothing to lose.

  2. I think the model with the prominent shoulders and muscular arms might be a boy, what do you think?

  3. I saw this movie "Taking Woodstock" it was very good
