I started writing this at 1:30 am
I woke up this morning late. I didn't get in bed until 2:30 and I still wasn't tired, so my alarm got a beating for about an hour and a half.
Shortly after we all got up Obie had an explosion on the bedroom carpet. As I was bending down to clean it up I felt the familiar painful grab in my shoulder and back. After a few seconds the pain subsided and a few Advil took care of it for the rest of the day.
I was beat, so I got ready for bed at 10:30. As soon as I laid down my left shoulder totally seized up. I could hardly breathe. Punk
wasn't home and my phone was in the other room. I had to wait for an hour, flat on my back, with a 2-year-old who wouldn't go to sleep and didn't understand that making me dress her doll over and over wasn't helping.
finally got home he helped me out of bed and ordered me to go to urgent care. I felt like throwing up from the pain. The PA who saw me there seemed a bit concerned that I was having a heart attack. My pulse was 140, the pain was radiating somewhat... but no chest pain and my pulse did eventually slow down. He sent me home with 2 Vicodin, the strongest they can give out. I was not allowed to take them if I was going to be driving, so I promised I would wait until I got home. They were in a little cup, sealed in a biohazard bag. The nurse impressed upon me the importance of NOT getting pulled over on the way home. Heh. Try to explain that one.
Finally, the pain is now tolerable. As long as I don't move. Tomorrow morning I have prescriptions to fill for Percocet and Robaxin. I can't drive on the drugs, so I doubt I'll be going to work. It's my boss's last day so I should probably try to make an attempt to get to his farewell lunch. We'll see.
This particular muscle(s) get sore pretty often, but never like this. This was... painful. And now I'ja
HA! That was the point I passed out last night. I already missed an important appt this morning and probably will not make it to the lunch. I'm not even sure how I'm going to get my prescriptions filled. This sucks.
