they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

the vet called. while gus' stool sample turned out clean, they want to check him for prostate cancer or a bowel obstruction. my stomach hurts.
and, my bone scan showed possible digenerative joint disease. i think it's because of the eating disorder i had in high school. i told you, i'm being honest. and this is my life today. and i'm crying.

    Jessi, I'm so sorry this is such a challenging time for you. Physical challenges like this can be so frustrating, especially when you work so hard to be healthy. Taking care of a sick pet is tough too. Hang in there, and take good care of yourself and your family (which includes Gus, of course). Remember that God gives us only what we can handle. Whatever you have been given to go through these days, you will get through it. I'll be thinking of ya!

    Jessi, I'm so very sorry to hear about all these terrible frustrations and fears! You poor thing. Please know that I'm thinking and praying for you and sweet Gus. Have faith that everything will work out as was intended, and treat yourself with extra care right now.

    As Mother Teresa once said, "I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much!"

    Sorry to hear everything's craptastic right now. But just remember that you have to have these low points so your story on Lifetime will be more dramatic. Because after the commerical break, we'll have to see how Jessi overcome her obstacles.

    By the way, thanks for explaining those pear trees on campus. Now I know what those stinky trees were called. And now I also know what dog period smells like.

    Can you find a pool and run in there? Maybe the decreased weight on your feet would be ok. Or bike at the gym? I know it is not the same but at least you would be proactive and you would stay in control of the situation. You remind me a lot of my little sister who has to keep working out or you she will go crazy. Best of luck - we are sending you good vibes. Drink your milk.
