    Dang that hurts!!

    Fair warning, I am whining.

    Last Saturday as I was pulling on a nylon ratchet strap I felt the burn. Big time! Like a fire in my side. Obviously I pulled a muscle. Well here it is a week latter and for some reason after getting better it got worse. Slept miserable last night. Couldn't get comfortable. Would wake up and it would hurt to move. Just really sore again and I have been good and not doing anything to aggravate it.

    I had an Inspection this morning and that REALLY didn't help. It hurts to take a deep breath now! And to add insult to injury. I got my offer to join AARP yesterday. I would laugh but it hurts to bad.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Sounds like it might be time to get it checked on. After experiencing the 11th anniversary of my 50th, I warn you that the AARP mailings come weekly or so it seems. Getting older is not always pleasant. But it beats the alternative, if you know what I mean. Hopefully a good nights sleep will help you return to your "old" self.

    My very proud, in a good way, and independent MIL said no to AARP....until she saw the discounts on so many things that came with it....now she embraces it.

    Hope you heal well and fast...can't take the kayak out if you can't paddle.

    I'd go get it checked out - for peace of mind knowing it's a routine thing and not something serious like a hernia.

    I hope that you get well, but excuse my ignorance. What does AARP stand for??

    I do no want to make a joke but the only thing I can imagine is American Association of Retired People and that doesn't make any sense to me.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    You got it Toni! Bottom line is it is a business. They work to get legislation/laws passed and they arrange a lot of Discounts to their members through companies that work with them. Bottom line is they are out to make a buck. Not that that they are a bad organization, it's just a business.

    Going to take it easy over the weekend and see if it gets better of worse. I really think it's just a strained or pulled muscle BUT I am not stupid either. If it's not better I will get an appointment with the Doctor.
