Bored out of my Mind

I can’t walk at the moment, it took me 2 hours to get my leg moving enough to get out of bed this morning.

I spent over half of yesterday’s daylight hours at the hospital waiting to be seen by someone to get some tests done and now I hae to wait for a referral to a rheumatologist.

I spoke to work on Tuesday explaining that I was in chronic pain and that sitting on my chair in the office was actually more than a little bit uncomfortable, and they were fine with me taking work home with me.

Anyway, today I called up to say that I wouldn’t be in – I am in agony, my leg feels as though someone is ripping it in half…and I mentioned that I would get on with the work that I started yesterday evening as I had nothing else to do and it would keep me occupied…but now apparently it’s not all right…I would have to have a home working assessment, and my boss isn’t willing to have the form sent to me (it takes all of five minutes to fill in)…also she sounds very put out with me.

I am so sorry that I damaged nerves in my leg…I really intended to do something so stupid that I can’t walk properly and apart from pain feel very little else. I planned this all so I could watch crap daytime TV, and sit in my room bored out of my skull while I suffered from a minor writer’s block and a recurrence of depression…yep, this was my plan!

I am annoyed that my boss is angry with me. I fully intended to go in today, and if it weren’t for the fact that I couldn’t even lift my leg high enough to get in the shower I would currently be sitting uncomfortably in my chair at the office doing work ineffectively that I was able to do so much better at home.

Thus endeth the rant.

  1. Asshats, the lot of ’em. It seems I’m the only one of our “support group” that had a faily decent day. Tonight should be different though, as I have tons of Calculus BC work to do and a major paper to be turned in tomorrow. Blah.

    Hope you had a better day. Feel better, at least. YOU AREN’T ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY PAIN!

    Would it help if I said after Josh sang at my wedding, he could go straight to your side? Brad’ll have to do. (HA)


    1. He’ll have to do? Most would be very happy to have Brad!

      And it should hopefully start to get better soon…I actually have an appointment with a specialist tomorrow, which means that my plans to return to work tomorrow morning are gone…but I need to see this specialist…soonest seen soonest sorted it, right?


      1. Right right. See the specialist. I have an appointment with my neurologist tomorrow for more brain scans. *rolls eyes* Yes, I have one. No, it doesn’t function correctly. Even a three year old could see that.

        And Brad will most certainly do. In a quiz I took, we were married 30 some-odd number years. *grins* Go me.


      2. Well that’s certainly a nice long time to be married. It could be worse, you could be married to Brad Dorkins or something from down the road, you know the guy – the one who picks his nose and has the greasiest hair this side of Snape!

        Hell, who does have a brain that functions correctly these days? I take pills to make sure mine does, but they only work when I remember to take them.

        I am seeing a Rheumatologist for my possible nerve problem…always thought that a Neurologist dealt with that, but then I am not a doctor…and the person who referred me is!
