40 is hard

I turned 40 last June & I have never felt so unhealthy, tired & had so many health probs going on. My most recent problems are a broken tooth, sore throat & a creapy rash on my hand. Last Summer I was eating an olive that wasn't suppose to have a pit in it & I bit down & it did have a pit. So it's been bothering me since last July or August. It finally cracked a few weeks ago when I was eating my Special K cinnamon pecan cereal. Luckily it's on the side inside my tooth, where no one can see it. I called the dentist & he got me in 3 days later. I thought he would fix it then, but he just sanded it, so it wouldn't be jagged against my tongue. I'm suppose to wait till April 13th to get it fixed, but it has been bothering me when I eat hot foods. I called yesterday to see if they could get me in sooner, but because it's an hr & 1/2 visit, they might not be able to get me in before then. I went to the doctor yesterday & she did a throat culture for the sore throat, but she said she didn't think I had strep. The rash is eczema. It started out like a regular rash, now it looks like a burn. It went from a few spots to 1 big spot. The doctor called in a cream, but the pharmacy won't get it in till tomorrow afternoon. I've been really tired for the past month. Between noon & 6 I get really tired & have to nap. I try to get things done in the morning, when I have energy. What's next a broken hip?

Sigh. I turn 40 in October. The other day I found what is either a monster freckle or...dare I utter...a small age spot. I wanted to cry :(

I will be 40 later this year and I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to feel a little older. However, I'm trying to fight back! Found you through the Comment Love Weekend!

I'm turning 30 next tuesday. I'm in horrible shape and I hate it. I'm trying to get the weight off, but it's slow going. I'm also always tired, and it doesn't matter how much sleep I get....I can't feel rested. I guess I have no luck for 40 huh?


Stopping by from comment love weekend!

I turned 40 last April... which means 41 is just two weeks away. Awesome.

It's the getting back in shape that is killing me. It's not like when I was 20 and just WAS in shape. Now I have to really work at it. A lot. Everyday. BLECK.

I have ezcema. I get outbreaks when I'm under stress. Mostly on my hand, thank goodness. I've learned to see the first "bump" and whip out my cream. Its usually gone within a day. I haven't a full breakout in like 10 years. They have miracle creams now!
