Teeth grinding
Athlete's foot (but only 3 toes)

Tight hamstrings
Really huge callouses on my big toes.

I think that last part of that statement is the wonderful part of what you said .... its a sign of true self acceptance .. I hope I can get to that point sometime. :-)

chronic migraines

severe pollen allergies
weak ankles
RSI - lateral & medial epicondylitis

That is *so* ironic! Inspired by the bout of 'disorder'-related entries that I've been reading lately in various communities, I was going to make a list of my own maladies! But more along the lines of both things-I-know-for-certain-that-I-have and do-I-have-this?! combined. A bit tongue in cheek, as I find that many new/non-traditional disorders are a bit like horoscopes--the descriptions could apply to *anyone* if stretched a bit. Which is not to say that they don't exist. I remember at a certain point a few years ago (after several years of living in California, land of dueling infirmities), I realized that we are all basically 'abnormal'. In other words, no one has perfect physical health and/or mental health. And many disorders seem to describe personalities as much as actual bodily disorders (of course, they are deeply implicated). The list of possible 'syndromes' and 'disorders' is, I imagine, unlimited, if the number of necessary 'cases' is low. Again, not to say that people don't really *suffer* horribly from many of them, just to point out that we must balance caring and sympathy (for others and for ourselves) with the recognition that bodies are by definition imperfect. Mathematically speaking, there is no way that our genes could possibly create the complicated beings that we are without a few slip-ups, some minor, some major. It's statistically impossible to be a 'perfect specimen'.
K, let me know what you think about my list, ok? I'm curious as to the opinion of those who know me well.
And, anytime you need a backrub or a hand held, just let me know.
By the way, do you need a place to stay in Paris when you arrive in September?

very true my dear. that was, I think, part of my point--my bosy is "messed up" by a doctor's standard but I love it and it functions pretty damn well for me and I'm happy with it/being in it. the irony.

I comment on your list tommorow, when I's not so sleepy.

as for Sept--can y'all put me up for a night?

We can definitely put you up for a night, although we'll have to figure out what you can sleep on... hopefully by then we'll have a futon or fold-away cot.
Love your body! My mom always says that your body can 'hear' you, so praise it for doing its best, and it will work better.
