Thanks for the input on yesterday’s post. I can’t help but feel like I’m going behind my boss’s back by looking for another job; but that’s probably just another symptom of our extremely dysfunctional relationship. I got some inside dirt on the job I will be interviewing for; I REALLY hope I get it because it sounds like it would be a good move for me.
In recovery news, the pain is much better, the swelling is starting to go down, and I am now able to move around much better. The biggest problem I’m having now is that I’m SO TIRED all the time. Just getting up to make coffee sends me back to bed for an hour, and I’m sort of dreading seeing one of my very high-energy friends this afternoon. She’s wonderful and it’s nice of her to visit me; is it terrible if I’d rather just watch Buffy on Netflix and fall asleep?
I should also note that, other that the inevitable spikes that happen when I cough or try to move in an unwise way, the pain does not even approach what I am used to feeling with my period. That makes me kind of angry, because I have been telling doctors about my menstrual pain since I was a teenager and was always told that everyone has pain, that I should take some Aleve and put up with it. I always just figured I must be a big weenie. Now that I have this frame of reference I feel pretty sure that my menstrual pain has not been “normal” or “expected.” Hopefully it will get better now.
