How Vecepia won Survivor
Our office had a snow day yesterday, so we worked from home. I'm not set up to work standing at home yet, so I sat on the couch. And pissed the duxk out of my hips!
I tempt pain this way. I think it is stubbornness. "I should be able to do this, so I will." I should be able to sit on the couch, sit to work, eat more than a touch of sugar. So I will.
It got bad enough yesterday that I was spinning as I was trying to fall asleep. But it wasn't my cooch itself that was so bad -- it was a donut-hole-sized spot of pain northeast of my tailbone. I also had an eclair-sized swath of pain along the front panty line of my inner right hip. And my right hip had started freaking out when I moved.
I forgot all this hip stuff when I filled out the survey for Dr. Howard. It must not've been acting up -- probably because I had been standing at work and reclining at home. So I will write the hip details up for him since I have trouble remembering everything in the presence of doctors.
I think the hip problems might be nerve problems. But in November, my mom had a hip transplant after years of limping and pain due to arthritis. I am too young for that, right? An x-ray a couple years ago showed no arthritis, so I bet I am. Right?
So I had this thought and I'm going to share it without looking it up. Season 4 of Survivor, Vecepia won. And after she did, she reported that she had changed her screensaver, or something, to something like "I will win Survivor. I will win $1,000,000." I can't stop my optimism right now, and I'm thinking that the thought patterns like the ones I'm having are how Vecepia won Survivor.
