What's Going on in There?

For the past six months, I have been in pain. Some days it's bearable. Other days, I have to catch my breath when the pain rolls over me in waves. The last time I went to the doctor, he diagnosed me with costochondritis - inflammation of the cartilage between my ribs. In other words, I feel like someone has punched me all the time.
So, today I went back to the doctors and surprise, surprise - I'm in for more tests. It would have been very convenient if God had made our bodies in such a way that it wasn't so difficult to see what's going on inside!
I don't know if you've noticed that I haven't mentioned exercise on this blog. At least not yet. I'm hoping that when I start feeling better (and I say that in faith!!), I'll have the energy to get moving. Since I started this blog, I've actually lost about ten pounds - a small step in the right direction, but a great step nonetheless. Portion control and better choices are making a difference.
If you get a moment, remember me in prayer. My birthday is next week. I'd like to feel like celebrating.
And how are you doing these day? Anyone feel like checking in?


  1. Donna, start drinking a lotta water. See if that helps. I mean a lotta water. Do it for maybe 3 weeks and see what's what. That terrible pain in the chest also occurs with fibromyalgia and water helps.

  2. Thanks, Carole. I will check that out.
