Had a great afternoon ice skating at Millenium Park with my wife, son, and in-laws.  It was really good to see that my back and legs could handle it.  My health anxiety over the last year or so has led to (hopefully irrational) fears about something serious being wrong with me.

I have a doctor’s appointment this Wednesday for a spinal manipulation (third session) which is essentially a glorified massage.  My doctor is convinced that my aches and pains are simply tight muscles but I cannot shake the fear that I have some type of spinal or pelvic tumor.  I also have been obsessively examining my tongue for the last month or so thinking I see a strange growth.  I’m going to ask him to look at that as well.  I’m mainly writing this in hopes that I’ll one day look back on this and realize that all of my worries were for nothing.
