Feeling Old When...

Since I had so much fun using my Gina K. Stamps set 'You Know Your Old When…' set last night I decided to give it another go. In fact, today I was feeling a little old myself, now before you start harping on my age consider that not only do I stamp, I also quilt and create other crafty things that are considered my most of my peers to be something older people do. I also suffer from a lot of different random health issues, recently shingles, lyme disease when I was in grade school, for about 6 years now (although it hasn't bothered me in a while) ulcerative colitis and most recently a slightly herniated disc in my lower back. Luckily I don't suffer from pain yet, in fact I may never but I got the results of my MRI today (I went Friday after work) and I started to freak out. I have what feels like fluid on my lower back that doesn't bother me, but that I know is not supposed to be there. I hadn't noticed that it even existed until a little over a year ago, but I didn't question it. A few weeks ago when I went for my follow up appointment wiith the shingles I showed my doctor my lower back and she seemed confused and unsure of what it could be….not a comforting thought. Today she called to tell me my results from last week and I sort of freaked out, she stressed that since I am not in any pain at the moment its nothing to worry about, but that I should be aware of it and keep an eye on how my back feels. Not fun, but it made me feel old, do you know what I mean? It's just another thing to add on to the growing list of random things I suffer or will suffer from in the future.
So in celebration of being old…how about using some more of those great stamps! This one is of an old lady driving….my favorite! You know the ones I’m talking about, the ones who can’t see over the wheel and can’t walk to the door but still drive. If any ‘old’ ladies are out there you worry me, really you do. If you can’t walk properly you shouldn’t be driving, just my thoughts. Sorry this is such a long post again, you don’t have to comment I just needed to vent a bit about how I am feeling right now. I would also like to say thank you to all of you who are wonderful enough to read my blog, that counter keeps going up and I am loving it!
