I have barkeep's elbow (bursitis) from putting too much pressure on my right elbow while reading or computing or doing other things around the house. According to the doctor, I have to keep all pressure off of it, ice it, and take anti-inflammatories.

I do not appreciate the old-age truck coming after me.

First of all, keep an ice pack on my elbow without putting pressure on it is an interesting trick. I'm lightly pressing the ice pack against it with my leg.

I never realized how often I put my elbow on things (not on the dinner table, I promise!). I now find myself turning into she-who-awkwardly-poses.

I called to commiserate with my aunt who is married to a doctor. She laughed and said, "Welcome to the far side of 35, sweetie."

Well, you could always pretend that you've been barkeeping in your sleep ;).

This made me laugh! :) "In my secret life, I have a bartending gig. Yeah, that's the ticket."

I'm going to live in denial for a few more years, L. :) Maybe I should add in some glucosamine to my granny pill box.

Boo! I haven't had anything wrong with my elbows but my knees like to remind me they're around.

I haven't been to the optometrist in a couple of years. I'm afraid that's next. ;)

I see your elbow and raise you a semi-permanently sore neck for reasons unknown ;-)

*hugs and commiserations*
