Is Metallman Breaking Down?

Hey there. I feel like crap today. Actually, I've been feeling like crap for about a week. I've had this headache that come and goes. It's odd because I've never really been one to experience headaches but recently they've come on.

I'm also experiencing some aches and pains on my body that I don't ever remember feeling before. Stupid body seems to pop and crack every time I turn or bend. lol My knees have always "popped". That's a cool little trick to show people. I do a squat and POP! Crazy. But recently, I've felt and hear this "tearing" sound in my left elbow when I extend it all the way. I wonder if maybe it's a tendon in my elbow or something. Doesn't hurt, but feels weird. I've been reluctant to start with my weight exercises because of it. The popping never stopped me from doing leg work outs but my elbow feels a little different.

I'm also having some lower back pains. Mainly in the kidney area. Stupid kidneys... Not filtering the crap out of my system fast enough or something... Maybe... I think. I drink my fair share of water at work, but I also offset that water intake with my coffee intake. Just as an insight, my coffee mug is almost twice the size of my water mug. lol

Then there's my breathing. Shallow at times. Metallman has done no cardio in since like forever. The last time I actually did some running so happened to be the last time I went to go play basketball about 2 weeks ago. I was short of breath and so not in basketball shape. I did manage to grind out 2 hours worth of basketball but I was definitely winded and stood around for a min or two to catch my breath here and there. I swear, I struggle to get up the stairs at work sometimes.

Old age? Nah, I doubt it. Like I said before, I don't plan on dying. If it happens, hey, what are you going to do? But to expect it? It's like expecting for an accident to smash your new car or that killer quake happening to split your house in two. Maybe my metabolism is finally slowing down. I've always had high metabolism and maybe, just maybe, it's slowed down enough where it's beginning to affect my body. Stupid metabolism. Stupid body. If only there was some kind of miracle drink that can cure all.

Now before I get Emails and comments saying that "Noni" works, let me set you straight. IT DOESN'T. lol I used to laugh at the infomercials and chuckled at this miracle drink. Basically, it cured everything under the sun but death. lol I don't see it around anymore so maybe people caught on to their BS and quit buying it. But if you're still a paying customer, I'd love to hear from you and it's "miraculous" healing powers.

Now for the rest of us, I'm going to look for other "cure all" stuffs out on the web and see what I find. I'm pretty sure the stuff will be interesting. Later.


  1. Strangely, thats how I've been feeling over the past few weeks. I know one thing though, I don't get enough sleep, and I drink coffee a lot to counter feeling sleepy at work, and that has given me headaches. I don't usually get headaches so I thought its the usual fever attack. Nope, its not, I get headaches a lot now. Do you get enough sleep a day?

    I don't drink water that much, just coffee, mostly. I gotta drink lots more water.

    You should get that elbow checked up, that sounds like something big. Or maybe not.

    Sorry for the long comment, but that headache thing is exactly what I'm experiencing too, just thought I'd share.

  2. Comments are nice, long or short. Yeah, I'm like that too. I was drinking coffee at my mother in law's BEFORE work, then I'd drink coffee at work too. I kinda figured that might be it so I'm trying to cut down, but I'm sooooo feeling the withdrawal symptoms. *twitch twitch*

    As for sleep, nah. I don't get much of the stuff. I usually go to be bed close to mid night on a nightly basis. Been that way for a very long time so I don't think that my sleeping habits are the prob.

    Elbow is not bothering me much, since it happens when I over extend it. Which only happens when I stretch.

    Since we're drinking too much coffee, I want to say that's the culprit. I'll be off the stuff for 3 whole days (well... 1 cup a day) after today! lol Later.

  3. Hahaha so I guess coffee's the headache machine. I'd like to take a break from coffee but I so need it. Off the stuff for 3 whole days with only 1 cup a day? LOL
