I'm wearing some of my favourite things today: my Volcom skinny jeans, grey American Eagle scuba hoodie, Sadie ampersand earrings, Gemma Correll button and my good luck necklace. I guess because these things bring me comfort.
For the past couple weeks I've been waking up to joint pain and I don't know why. My wrists, knuckles and balls of my feet have been bothering me. It fades away for the most part after the first half hour or so of being up, although certain things, like my thumb, bother me throughout the day. I finally went to see the doctor yesterday but didn't feel like she was much help. Apparently it could be any number of things: it could be arthritis but she doubted it since there's no visible redness or swelling, it could be tendonitis... So today I went for an x-ray of my thumb since that's been the worst: the doctor figured if we don't see anything there on the x-ray we won't see anything anywhere else. I'll call tomorrow if they don't call me for a follow-up appointment. Hopefully it's no big deal, it's just weird. The doctor seemed to think it might be from some repetitive exercise or use, but then why are my feet bothering me? My hands I can understand, maybe from texting, using my laptop, twirling my hair like I did when I was a kid which I can't seem to stop doing lately... Anyhow. Hopefully it gets figured out. It just freaks me out a bit, because obviously I use my hands a lot, for finicky things like jewelry, so the thought of something being wrong with them is worrisome.
