My Freaky Spine

IMG_0947[1]Went to the doctor again today (scheduled a discogram for next month. Contrary to  my hoped for belief, discograms do not actually involve male disco strippers.  Alas. They involve needles probing the discs between my vertebrae to look for tears. Alas, alas.)

Okay, so that’s going to suck and be painful, yadda yadda yadda. But seriously? At the top of that pic – do you see those little slanted bones that are a bit faded, coming out of my spine there? They look like little arms.

I have extra ribs, yo. Little, floating, vestigial ribs just hanging out from a vertebra that probably shouldn’t have them.

I’m growing wings, you guys! **


** Not really. But I wish I was. >_<

    Sometimes you just make me feel less alone in the world Allison. Not that I can relate to this whole spookedy back probing thing and I don’t know how to elaborate on it. You just do it and I smile and feel really lucky you’re there. 🙂

      Awww. *blushes*

      Thanks – that’s really sweet of you to say. 🙂

      (And yeah, I know a lot of people have floating ribs, but the doc seemed a bit surprised to see these where they were. I’m so messed up. LOL)

    You make me feel less alone in the world sometimes, too.

    I have an extra vertebrae – with your extra ribs and my extra vertebrae we could start building a whole new person. Granted not much of a person, but its a start.

    Feel free to ignore any of that – I’m having a bit of an insomnia problem right now. Must put down Kindle and try to sleep. Any second now…
