    Well, I decided to renew my family Y membership. I let it go last September. I couldn't remember exactly what the water did to me that made me feel bad, but I knew it did.

    Well, I really have to do something, my weight is at an obscenely embarassing all time high, aerobics or walking any kind of distance is not an option at this time.

    Saturday, I go, with hubby and kids. It felt so good to be weightless in the water, I Love Water! When I was younger, I lived in it.

    So of course, I start paddling around and so forth. For a couple of hours when I was done, the pain had eased.

    Well, Sunday I get up and realize I'm in a little pain, but I mainly ignore it, however, by last night I was in excruciating pain down my right side from neck to elbow and severe pain in right knee.

    Then it dawned on me, why I stopped the water program, I have chronic tendonitis in my elbow and the water excercises and swimming irritate it. The shoulder thing is new.

    I feel like one great big throbbing ball of raw nerves right now and this with less than an hour of leisurly paddling and floating in the pool!

    I want to scream!!! How do I explain this one?

    God Bless

    I'm so sorry this put you in so much pain when it sounds so refreshing and fun.

    Its frustrating. I'm feeling a little better and will give it another go soon.

    God Bless
