this old house.

Ok, not a house, but I live in this body that feels so old and broken down. Considering I haven't taken great care of it over the years, I understand, however at 24 I feel that it shouldn't be in such sad shape. When I was 17 I had emergency gall bladder surgery after 6 years of painful attacks and vomiting to discover over 2 dozen gall stones. Sick. I have migraine, 3 pinched nerves in my back, 1 pinched nerve in my hip, a tilted pelvis, and currently diagnosed with a large cyst abnormality in my right knee. I'm going to the ortho specialist the 19th of July and can't wait for some resolution to this pain and discomfort. I pretty much always feel like I pulled a muscle in my calf, my knee and every thing below it swells to almost an inch larger than my left leg, and the throbbing and sharp shooting pain is quite the nuisance.

I feel that once my knee is in better shape I will feel more encouraged to be more active. I really enjoy gardening and still do it even though it kills my knees. I've never been a runner, but I spend all day on my feet at work and exercising is the very last thing on my mind after chasing after customers for 7-10 hours. I'm looking forward to having a Trader Joe's in West Des Moines. I like Gateway, but it's inconvenient for me to get to and it can be expensive. I'm going to spend the rest of 2010 getting healthy. Collecting healthy recipes, reading more, using my fresh produce from the garden, and taking more photos(it makes me happy so I consider it a part of my mental health program).
