I am determined to make it today. If determination were money, I wouldn't NEED to work, because today I would be a millionaire. I will make it today, at least as long as a normal day. I don't feel any better, but I am tired of feeling like a failure. My older sister called me last evening, she has a way of knowing when I need to talk to her, and me---being me---would rarely reach out to her. She is the only normal, sane person in my family. She always understands me, no matter what. And she manages to make sense of all my stupidity, even to me. No, she can't fix anything, and she can't make anything better. But she does somehow calm me, and tell me what I already know. And yes, she did suggest what a really good friend has already suggested a time or two in emails and on the phone, and yes, I am going to look into hooking up to my job from home and doing the best I can in both places. Stubborn much? Perhaps. But today, I am going to do the very best I can. Tomorrow be damned, and it probably will be. :)
I think Mondays should take a break --- or a holiday, and we should get a break from them. Start the week off on Tuesday now and then, anyone agree? Have a good day. Out.
I talked with my Dr's office again today, and i have the first epidural this Friday! I was surprised...as she has told me last Friday that it would be a few weeks until I could get this scheduled. However, she said today that the Dr didn't think I should wait that long. I am happy to hear that, and hopeful that this will help. Very hopeful. It's nearly two pm and I am still at work, although my determination is waning a bit, as the pain is increasing. Many of the staff is out today with bronchitis, I can only assume that Soul passed it around to everyone (thanks, Soul :)) teehee. So, I will abandon ship only as a last resort, but that resort will be arriving sooner rather than later. Out.
