Try Osteoarthritis at 33 years old!So, I've been diagnosed as suffering from Achilles Bursitis. Don't know what happened, I usually take these long walks around the entire worksite (Disneyland Resort) and by the end of the day on Saturday, my left heel area got sore. Sunday I go in limping a bit, and then Monday stepping on the heel is a sharp pain. Went to the doctor.
Now I'm out of commission for at least five days, my upper body is all sore from attempting to move around with crutches (I guess I'm so out of shape I don't use those muscles, either). All I can do is ice the heel area and take large doses of ibuprofen. And after a full day of taking this stuff, I'm not feeling any better! I can't play, let alone walk. Hobbling out to the car to go somewhere is almost a dangerous proposition. Having a hard time doing simple things like washing the dishes and cleaning up. This sucks!
Of course, the company nurse tells me, "well you're at that age you know..." And I'm like, "speak for yourself sister!" I hope none of you are neglecting how you walkabout!
I can still drum as well as I could as a young 'un but it's tougher
