So one of the more radical steps I am taking to resolve my "pain" is to have a bilateral breast reduction in April. I am looking forward to it's benefits of reducing the upper back pain and headaches. I do have to admit though, I am now looking forward to having my boobs back so to speak. The surgeon and I both agree that a "C" cup is great, and natural for me. So a reduction and lift is being done April 19th. That and I get a minimum of a 2 week break from all chores, cooking included... oh no, what will everyone do now?! Will we starve? LOL.
So it's a relief that I know why I hurt, and have a plan of action, as I REALLY want to get back into heavier exercise. The other thing that I did is manage to break a rib in my back. Now how on earth did I manage that, esp as I broke it myself? I did something stupid. All those classes when I was providing in home care on how to move things, and pick things up, and put things down, you know, back safety... well I guess I forgot about all of that!! I did a twist lift and swing of my rather heavy reiki table into the trunk of my car, and put enough torsion on my 3rd posterior rib that I broke it... I thought I had just badly pulled a few muscles (which I had done anyway in the process), but here I had broken it. The bone scan picked that one up for me! DOH! Now that explains why it still hurts! Shaking my head!
Ok so FOOD! That's why you came to this blog entry right? The dinner we had last night was simply amazing. Basic shell pasta with an Italiano Chickpea dish. Vegan sour creme (store bought), my heavy on the garlic hummus, and a store bought veggie dip and crackers.
