Okay, so, all those times I said to various doctors, "Gee, do you think that maybe my abdominal muscles might have separated during the pregnancy as is sometimes wont to happen during pregnancy? And that maybe, just maybe, that is one of the sources of my pain?" and the doctors punched me in the gut a couple of times and then said, "Gee, nope, feels fine!"
Well, according to the nice physical therapist woman I saw today, they were wrong. And guess what? I believe her.
That's not all that's wrong with me, though. Oh, no. This is me we're talking about here. Karma does not allow my life to ever be that simple. No, I also have apparently somehow mysteriously fubar-ed one of the muscles that connects the left side of my pelvis to my spine. The nice physical therapist told me the name of this muscle, twice. Once while she was jabbing her thumb into it, and once while she was shocking it with mild electricity. However, surprisingly, I do not remember this name. I think maybe it started with "S," as in, "Shit, that hurts, nice physical therapist woman."
But, seriously, I am SO happy to finally figure out what is wrong with me and be prescribed a reasonable course of treatment that does not involve death or surgery that I would TOTALLY be jumping up and down right now and cheering! If jumping up and down and cheering didn't hurt.
In other news, I am two memes behind. I have been tagged twice in the past month, and so far, the lameness that is me has only posted one small part of one of the memes! But I am working on it. I spent like two hours working on my Summer 1996 post tonight, thinking I would finish it, and then it went off in this totally weird direction I didn't expect it to, and now it's really long. Even for me. I think too long for a blogger attention span. So now I will have to cut it to ribbons, and try to weave something out of the shreds tomorrow morning when I'm not so emotionally attached.
In other other news, I am trying to find a good potty-training related book for my son that doesn't make ME want to puke. Any suggestions?
Finally, please check out my new and slightly improved sidebar! With more blogroll action! It's what I did yesterday instead of posting. Well, that, and reading 500 million other blogs.
