But then, on Wednesday afternoon, for no apparent reason (I mean, I hadn’t been hauling around heavy bookcases!!!), I was suddenly struck by a terrible pain in my lower back. I haven’t had that sort of pain in ages…years, methinks. Of course, one of the first thoughts that popped into my mind was: MYELOMA!
But then Reason took over, and I remembered that I’d had lower back trouble/pain since I was a rather young thing. It’s just that I haven’t had it in such a long time…and I’d forgotten how crippling it can be. That’s all.
And then I remembered that I hadn’t taken any curcumin since Friday…A FULL FIVE DAYS PLUS WITH NO CURCUMIN…So I got back on curcumin immediately, et voilà!, today I’m feeling much better. Working and up and about.
Just being careful when I have to stoop. Little Prezzemolo didn’t understand why I didn’t bend over to pet him this morning, as I usually do.
Now, about those five full days without curcumin, I noticed something else that might be connected (or not): my urine was foamy on Sunday night.
And that reminds me. It’s been a long time since I’ve had blood tests. Way too long. Must go. Soon.
But not today. My back is much better, but I have a TON of work to do. I need to get cracking, in fact! But I did want to post a few more of my favorite photos of Venice, including that glass puffin I noticed in a Rialto store window, how about that? (Well, okay, it’s a toucan, NOT a puffin, but I like to think of it as a puffin…And you should have seen the puzzled looks on the faces of Venetian glass shop owners when I asked them if they had any glass puffins, hehe…)
Have a super weekend, everyone!
