Old age is not for sissies. I read this all the time.

I walk my dogs, take an exercise class, eat lighter now that it’s warm out.

I am in pain.

I thought it started as sciatica, but it stopped traveling and the hip just hurts.I waver between icing it or taking an anti-inflammatory, but I am afraid it’s going past that and medical assistance might be needed.Of course, I really don’t want to pay an orthopaedic man $30 to tell me I need to drop some weight. I KNOW THAT.

I need to lose this pain.

Stay tuned to this blog for the medical update of dancing in the world of medical co-pays, referrals, and hopefully, pain relief.

It’s groundhog, er, flushot day…..

It happens every year.

I’ve made Shingleman go for flu shots with me since he ended up in emergency for the first two years we were married with the flu….

Our local hospital has a free flu shot program every year and we go: with my cancer history and compromised immune system I must have one, and Jim, because he just has to go because I am not paying a copay to the emergency room when he gets it.

It’s a little on the bittersweet for me this year, since, hopefully, next year, we
will be in a different hospital area…one door closes, another one opens…
