Apologies for the lack of updates as I’m going through a very personal period right now.
On a physical note, I fell down on my left arse while attempting a headstand [actually, fell down thrice]. I guess yesterday was the last straw because after teaching the 8pm class my ENTIRE left hip radiated pain from my lower back all the way down to my pubic bone / groin. In fact, the only way to alleviate the pain was to put pressure on my left groin using my hands, but honestly, it just looks like I’m trying to masturbate furiously. No, really, I’m just trying to OW MY HIP!
So I guess this means a few days of rest away from the yoga as I suspect a Sacroilliac Joint Inflammation [no, I haven’t went to see the doctor yet, cause I’m too big a chicken and I HATE LOCAL DOCTORS HERE AND I DON’T HAVE THE TIME]. I can imagine having a conversation with my regular GP [who I totally swear is jacked up on meth] and telling her that my femur hurts, my sacroiliac joint hurts and what she’ll do is look at me with a puzzled look, give me 20 different painkillers to pop [because she LOVES overprescribing like that] and tell me to suck it up.
The thing with hip injuries is not only do they hurt hella lot, most emotions are stored in our hips. Ergo, even the simplest things can trigger Waterworks United from me.
EG #1 :
I see a cat at the restaurant I’m eating at. I feed it, pet it, and leave it.
I WANNA BRING KITTY HOME!!!!!!
EG #2 :
“Hey, have you found your earphones? I got you some for your birthday”
OH MY GOD THAT IS SO NICE OF YOU
“Erm, they’re just earphones you know”
I KNOW I DON’T KNOW WHY I FEEL LIKE I’M GOING TO BURST INTO TEARS WAH WAH WAAAAH
I don’t know. I guess I’m either having serious PMS or this hip thing is messing with my emotions big time.
