How I wish it was another dollar instead! I can't seem to shake this stupid cough. So I'm off to the doctor this afternoon. I'm just not feeling the greatest, and I'm supposed to have 2 treatments this week. I don't want to go. I don't want to do it again without the port. Last time sucked so bad. Ninety minutes to place 2 lines. Stab, stab, stab. Plus, before each treatment I have an appointment with a different doctor. Nice.
Anyway, you'll all be offering me some cheese to go with my whine in a moment, I'm sure. I need carpal tunnel surgery. My hands are so numb and painful in the morning....sometimes for hours. They hurt SO bad....and I sleep with wrist splints on. I have forever. But they don't help enough. I've been diagnosed with it through an EMG (oh, those are SO fun!)...and I've tried the Cortisone shots....which I will NEVER do again. Talk about pain. HOLY CRAP. The shots themselves were brutal enough, but them for 24 hours I had the worst hand pain I've ever had in my life. I cried all night. It was HORRIBLE.
So I need surgery. We've met our out of pocket max. for insurance this year, so it would be 100% covered if I can figure out how to get it done before Decemeber 1.
Then, I still need the port, which will be covered as well.
Saturday I ran a few errands and had lunch with my friend Joanna, and I was just WALKING and hit my big toe with the heel of my other shoe, my cute, summer Birks that I bought in March or April that my feet are FINALLY not too swollen to wear, and the first time I wear them, I BARELY bumped it, and nearly ripped half my toenail off. Started gushing blood, I'm in the bead store...good grief. What else.
Could someone please just move in for about a month and manage my life for me? I'm tired of doing it. Ain't no letting up either. Doug hasn't been feeling well for almost a month as well. And getting him to the doctor is about as easy as getting a vegan to a pig roast. So that just adds more to me. Thank God for Auntie Shawn. Jacob goes there twice a week.
Because I'm supposed to "live a stress-free life." Um, yah. Anyone who can show me how to REALISTICALLY do that.....I'll give you a million dollars. As soon as my money tree starts blooming.
