I wonder…

God, is my body still under warranty?

The mystery pain I’ve been feeling since Friday has spread all over my torso, and occasionally on my legs.  Basically, it feels like I have sunburn…but there is nothing on the skin -no rash, no redness…zilch.  At first, I thought it was the onset of shingles (all the amatuer doctors I know (a.k.a., my friends, insisted this was probably the case).  But after it spread to other nerve areas without ever erupting into a rash, I began to doubt that “diagnosis.”  I did the smart thing and went to a real doctor today, who, amazingly, seemed as bewildered by my condition as I am.  His initial diagnosis is that it’s either (1) some sort of virus attacking my nervous system or (2) a condition induced by nothing more than stress.

In either case, the initial treamtment is to take a steroid for 6 days and see if that takes care of it.  If not, then I’ll be having my first-ever MRI.  Whee!  I’m 36 and I’m falling apart.  Wow.  High blood pressure…now this.

On a positive note, I resumed my gym workout this week.  Basically, since most of my physical troubles are my own consequences for years of laziness and bad eating habits, I can’t blame God for this. So – in spite of the mystery pain, I still made it to the gym, where I walked for a while then worked out my upper body.  I’m paying for it today, though, with sore muscles on top of the mystery pain.  And a sinus headache.  I’m eating Aleve like they’re M&M’s (not really, but it sounds cool to say it that way).

I met with Dave today and we toyed with a demo of Apple’s Pro Presenter.  Dang it…now I want a Mac really, really bad.
