To be honest, I'm really happy to see the rear end of September.
While there were a few good moments in the month, September was a month that I will remember because of the pain. And the diagnosis of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
Most of the pain is in my left leg, my feet, my left shoulder, and my abdomen. The PAD is definitely affecting both feet and the lower legs, but I'm afraid that it may have crept into the shoulders and both arms. As a matter of fact, part of me wonders whether the problem with the left shoulder all along has been PAD and it's been misdiagnosed. (Will have to talk to the doctor about this when I see him next.) This month will hppefully be spent finding a way to control the pain as well as find a way to alleviate all the bowel problems I have these days.
Anyway, here's hoping that October is a comfortable month, and that winter doesn't strike too early or too hard at all. ::knock on wood::
In the meantime, let pumpkin madness strike. :)
