Getting Old.

Apr 7, 2011

I had a post all set to publish but just couldn't bring myself to do it! It's all about the stress I'm feeling with issues at my job. But I seriously don't want to be the party pooper, y'all so I'm going to deal with it privately...or at least just complain about it some more to Ronnie. haha. Poor guy. He does give really great advice and is such a good listener but I'm sure he's sick of the drama! I know I am.

But in other, more dramatic news, I'm officially an old lady. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the many many years of typing {you know, emailing, Facebooking, working, blogging, Tweeting...} has finally caught up to me. My right hand will randomly turn tingly and/or go numb and sometimes I'll get pain in my wrist too. So being the hypochondriac I tend to be, I immediately freaked and started thinking about how surely I'm going to end up at the Brown Hand Center by year's end. Ugh. I mentioned it to my boss and she showed up with these goodies for me yesterday. A new mousepad with a gooey cushion and a handy dandy computer glove. Geez. Would you like any Metamucil with that, Jess?

I may not look close to 30 {hell, i don't even act 30} but my body has most definitely been around for almost 30 years and I'm not liking it. 

You know how else I know I'm getting old? On my daily commute home, the people driving 60mph down the curvy road where the speed limit is only 45mph is reeeally starting to make me nervous. I've never been an overly confident, bad ass driver but getting this nervous now is just ridiculous. Does driving make you a nervous wreck?

Oh yeah, and you know what else? If I catch any of you young whippersnappers texting while driving, you better believe I WILL honk at you. Multiple times. Because if I'm gonna be an old lady, I'm gonna be a crazy one for sure!

Please tell me I'm not the only one whose body is feeling old!?

My body may feel old and may be falling apart but mentally I don't feel old...

I feel 22-24 but sadly I'll be 30 in two and a half months! :(

aww babe hope your wrist feels better. 30 is definitely not old. I can't wait til I'm at that age. I think it's a perfect age to just go on about and do what you want to do. I think 30 is the new 20. It's funny cause I'm the same way when someone speeds on the roads I definitely get insanely nervous!

My right hand/wrist does the SAME THING! Tingle..sometimes numb..sometimes pain. We are going to end up crippled.

I've noticed that my knees hurt if I try anf sleep on my side (with one knee on top of the other). What is up with that?

We are too young for this crap!

LOL. This post is epic! I love it to pieces because we're far from old! You're only as old as you feel, dag nabit! Now wear that glove with pride and drink your fiber, but don't ever call yourself OLD, DAG NABIT!!!! lol

Girl, I feel you. I had to buy some compression socks for poor circulation the other day. I felt like such an old lady! Sigh... Enjoy your neato hand brace -- I hope it helps.
