If there was a cyst, would I notice a bump, or would it feel painful to touch?

Bleh. On top of it all, my GI tract is saying NO to the corn pops I ate this morning, and I'm crampy. I'm just full of loveliness today.

You may or may not notice a bump, i always do but I don't think I did the first time. it'd be very painful to the touch though and probably red.

I'm not noticing any pain to touch (the pressure actually feels kind of good), so that's good at least.

Need to go in for my yearly physical anyway...may as well have everything looked at in one fell swoop.

Rick's grandmother opted not to pay her bills and now we have no internet/phone/cable.

Electricity is probably next.

You may have jolted your tailbone out of alignment. I've had to get mine adjusted a few times, especially if I go to sitting long spells at a time.

I've had a pilonidal cyst before... er... 6 years ago or so? It still flares up sometimes minorly but it was like... a day of minor pain then all of a sudden intense pain so bad I couldn't sit or lie down on my back or anything. I rolled over on it then jolted myself awake because it was throbbing so bad. It is a very gross story but lets just say it started unexpectedly draining.

Grossest most painful thing ever.

But after it drained it was much much better. Still could not sit straight for the better part of a week. I hear most people have to go to the doctor to get them lanced and drained.

In the last 10 minutes I have completely unexpectedly gotten my period at work because I counted/guesstimated its ETA incorrectly, and had to euthanize one of my very first, sweetest, and longest-standing acupuncture patients. I kind of hate this day.

Why can't I bring Katey, Abe, and Zoey home with me?

I was throwing out an old rusty ferret cage ramp, and it was sitting in a half-full garbage bag that was by the back door waiting to go to the shed once it was full. This morning on my way to let Finn out, dumb bint me kicked it. Hard. Right against the bones on the top of my right foot.

It hurts to move it and looks like there's the start of a bad bruise. I'm positive I didn't break anything, but d**n there will be a big bruise. Ouch.
