Well, my back has taken a horrible turn for the worse. I actually had to leave work last night, something I have never done in my life. I was doing okay, I bent over to pick up something from the floor and POWEE! Can you believe, my doctor was actually at the hospital doing an outpatient procedure. I went into the ER to beg the ER doc for a muscle relaxant or something and there he was. It was like heaven-sent. The Flexoral or whatever it is doesn't really do anything but make me sleep, but sleep is pretty good right now. At least I am sleeping instead of lying in bed in agonizing pain. I got up and tottered around, took care of the kitties. They are very puzzled by this turn of events. I had to go to the grocery because I was out of cat food, wouldn't you know. Although I think the short walk was good for me. In fact I know it was. I'm not going to spend much time on the computer but I do want to record this in my journal so I can look back later. Have no appetite whatsoever. Ate a fried egg this morning. Food of all types is disgusting. Probably the medication. I should choke something down because this is no time to fast. I am very thirsty, though, and drinking a lot of water.
One of my co-workers is having an open farm day at his goat farm on Sunday, I hope I am better by then! He has baby goats and lots of goat products. I love goat milk soap, just the thing for my sensitive skin.
I need to get into the shower and clean myself up. Just the everyday maintenance stuff is so hard. I have cleaned up after the cats and now I need to clean up me. Sure wish I could pee standing up. Now I know why some people have those raised toilet seats.
Just made a doc appt - I don't think he can do anything but I feel I should go because if I have to miss more work it will look really bad if I don't go to the doc. No one thinks I am faking it or anything, but I want to be above suspicion if you know what I mean. The first thing people ask is "did you go to the doctor?" and if you say no, there is a long telling silence...like if you were really sick, you would have.
Well, I should set out on my errands now. Hope there are no spiders in the shower.
