Alter Ego Hotness


Don't ya wish your Alter Ego was hot like me? Don't cha? Well she or he can be. Just go make one for yourself. I'm so thankful to my buddy Mel Francis (her book Bite Me is ready for pre-order now at Amazon yo!) and her Month of Mel challenge for sending me over to The Hero Factory to create her. Isn't she the Hottest. Too bad I'm not feeling quite up to her kick butt status just yet.



I went to have my back checked out and the doctor feels I have a pinched nerve. The lesson here is listen to your body. Really listen. You see I've been having a problem with my big toe on my left foot for quite a while that has taken me off track with my running challenge. Giving me annoying pain that has me saying, Hmm... I really need to check this out... someday. Well, yesterday while barely being able to stand in the doctor's office without holding the wall and having to have my DH help me to the bathroom. I said to the doctor, this is probably unrelated, but I have this crazy pain in my toe. He tell me it's not unrelated at all. The nagging toe pain was a symptom of my pinched nerve.

So all of you 'do for everyone else in the world first' out there folks take a cue from me. Listen to your body and get things checked out. Make yourself a priority. Those little things may be telling you something big.

Best,
Kwana

You and your toe and that back, take it easy on your ego and get well now. Rest and listen to your Doc.

Kristen Painter said...

Your poor back! Feel better and take it easy.

Sarah Tormey said...

Feel better soon! And thanks for the advice on the big toe pain, I never would have guessed foot pain would be connected to back pain.

Deidra said...

Wow! The toe bone's connected to the back bone? Who'd have thunk it? I'm glad you got yourself to the doctor and I'm still praying for your speedy recovery, Ms. Incredible. ;)

Oooh, a pinched nerve. That's nothing to mess around with. Good thing you're so hot and superpowered! That's got to ease the sting a bit.

Foot and back pain?! You poor woman, I'd be in a homicidal rage. Take good care and feel better soon.

Cute alter ego!!

This post couldn't be anymore timely!!

I have this strange/uncomfortable feeling on my left foot that hurts badly when I walk. I think I will get it checked out.

PS I hope you're feeling better! :-)

I hope you're feeling better soon! xoxo

Jax Cassidy said...

Awww, sorry to hear about the pinched nerve. Good thing you went to the doc and discovered it's related to the toe. I'm sure now you're going to resolve both problems if you listen to the good doc. Take care.

Joyce said...

Oh Kwana I hope your back is better soon. This has to be hard to take care of the family etc... I'll say a special prayer tonight. xoxo

Mel Francis said...

I'm FINALLY starting to catch up on my blog reading. Stupid day job getting in the way of my internet fun.

I can't believe you have a pinched nerve. Poor baby girl. Maybe your alter ego can take over for a while...

*hugs*

Hope your back is getting better. It looks like from a later post that you're on the mend.
