Oh me oh my. So, I have been having some pretty painful lower back issues over the last month that have peaked as of this last Friday. After 2 days of not going into the office I finally went to the doctor. I have now been diagnosed with sciatica…which aside from being difficult to spell sucks big donkey…you know the rest. And, it gets even better. The doctor I saw clearly could see my pain and she was by all definitions a kind soul. She took me off work for the rest of the week. This freaked me out because I can work, I just can’t sit. I had been working for the past 2 days from home with no problem; so what if I am laying in bed with a laptop perfectly placed on my stomach? My boss told me plainly that I had to shut down the lap top.
At first the little rebel in me thought: uhhh huuuuh you can’t tell me what to do. If I could move better, I would have added the cobra but alas I am disabled. Then, I thought about it and even though I cringe at having to use my Paid Time Off (because my job does not provide sick time) it is probably better for me to take the time off. Work has been so unbelievably stressful. I won’t get into it, but it has been STRESSFUL! Lots-o-change!!! I really do believe my body is performing a coup for me to sit my butt down and relax.
I am on day 5 of being laid up on my arse. Hence the second posting….I simply cannot handle anymore television and honestly a lot of the news is just making me depressed. The economy sucks and I cannot understand why The White House has asked the CEO of GM to step down but allows the bank robbers to still be in power….Seriously, I thought this was about CHANGE. But, I won’t go there ….right now. Anyways….I tried reading but the haze of the muscle relaxers is brutal and I can’t remember what I read.
Think good thoughts for my ass….I will need a lot of them considering the size of it.
