The Blonde on the Prairie: Don’t Diagnose Yourself

October 12, 2012

Owie! If you’ve seen me at all this week you may have heard me say that word.

About a week and a half ago I began noticing it more than before. Though I noticed it before – I did that thing I’ve made myself so good at. I can justify most any pain in my body.

Pain is such a subjective thing. I can breathe my way through most anything and use my mind to forget about it for a minute. If I have a raging headache and squeeze my ear lobe my headache pain disappears for a spell because then my ear is taking up all the pain receptors. Just like I tease my cat – I tease my pain.

With a 40-14 win over Central Cass, the Valley City High School team clinched its return to the Class AA state playoffs for the first time since 2010.
