Whoppyjawed, out-of-kilter, off-balance; that’s what I’ve been. My desk chair is to blame.

About 2 weeks ago, my right hip started hurting, so much so that I couldn’t sleep comfortably. I couldn’t understand what was happening. It restricted my exercise and was altogether troublesome.

Then a week ago, Builderman sat down in my desk chair and said, “this chair is the cause of your pain! Get rid of it!” Huh? Well, it’s whoppyjawed. A couple of months ago, it made a funny noise, some metal fell out of the bottom of it and it took a funny tilt. Honestly, I didn’t even notice it, but obviously my hip did. After just a week of working in a chair that’s straight, my hip is almost completely better.

The moral of this story: The little things can make a big difference, especially over time. Lesson learned, apply as needed.

Grateful to Builderman for his excellent discovery and that your pain was not attributed to something much worse!

I think it most often is the little things. Paul would have said "thorn."

I am happy your hip feels better. It is good your husband (I think that is Builderman) was there to set you straight.;))
