I am not sure if this officially means I am old...but this week I was told I have bursitis in my hip.

I am pretty sure this is what my aunt had as she slid towards hip replacement. It is what all the people at the rest home complain about flaring up or something. It is not what should happen to a thirty-something hip.

Maybe I am being a little drama. The doctor said it happens to people of all ages, and perhaps I slipped off a curb or something running and irritated things (likely), and then continued to irritate it what with the ignoring of pain and the continuing of running and boot camp. Oops. The pain got so bad, and me so cranky, that I had to go to the doctor.

So now I am sidelined for at least a week, hopped up on lots of ibuprofen that, while it is FINALLY starting to help, is really upsetting my tummy. And I feel like a little old lady as I gimp along the street.

But, I am trying to listen to the doc and take it easy. And I hate it.
