I think stress and lack of sleep is messing with my body. I feel so odd right now and it's driving me out of my skin. I feel all.....twitchy. Every single bone in me hurts now and I'm restless. I can't sit still, yet my energy is nil, so I certainly don't want to do anything, but sitting still is agonizing. And I'm hungry and not hungry all at the same time.

My head hurts, and I have to pee like every hour, but only a little bit. I know, TMI, I'm sorry. I don't think it's a bladder infection because in all of my 36 years, I have never had one. So don't know what going on with that.

I swear, I want to claw my eyes out. I feel like death warmed over.

Huh.........maybe it's a zombie virus that [personal profile] buffyaddict13somehow infected me with. If that's the case, at least I have the coolest zombie in the world to hang with.

*goes to look for narcotics*

And, get this. It's July. In Cali-fucking-fornia. And it's raining. WTF?!?

I dragged my ass into work yesterday, even though my ankle was killing me and there had been a vicodin or two ingested. I didn't make it that long, cause the pain was too much for me. Before I digress into that.....

Three other people fell from the Cliff of Doom Thursday. I was not the only one. Though I was the only one unfortunate enough to get injured. Accomodations have been made, and the Cliff of Doom has been blocked by varoius newspaper racks and a garbage can, so no one else can plummet to their deaths.

So I left work about 10 am and headed to my doctor to have him take a look. In addition to the ankle, my right knee hurts too. Mt doctor's office was cool, cause the totally fit me in, in fact, they were "whatever time you can get her before noon, we'll see you." So doc looked at ankle and knee, and declared the knee fine (but it's bruised todaym and still hurts a lot, so we'll have to see) and he said ankel is definitely sorained and he wanted to do x-rays to rule out any fractures.

Here's where the fun began....

Went to xray office next door, and they wouldn't take the xrays unless I PAID FOR THEM. OUT OF POCKET. Yeah. I was pissed off. Really pissed off. So I cried. Cuz that's what I do when I'm really pissed off. Fear me.

They said they couldn't bill it to my insuranace, Blue Cross, becasue it was work related. And they said they couldn't bill it to worker's comp, becasue the claim isn't set up yet. I sure as hell don;t have enough money to fork over for these xrays. So I didn't have them done.

Doc put me in an Aircast (can we say sexy?) and gave me ibuprofen and vicodin. I love him for that alone.

*pets bottle of happiness*

I'll get the xray thing straightened out on Monday.

In the meantine, I'm just irritable. I hurt, have a headache, broke, I can't talk any walks for exercise, and the catering company called and wanted me to work a wedding reception tomorrow, which I can't. Stupid Cliff of Doom. And I sooo need that money right now too.

In other news, I think I'm going to move to Alameda. It's a cool little place, and my BFF,

[profile] ataxia71 ,lives there, but her apartment just upped her rent and she can't afford to stay at her place, so we're going to find a place together. It'll be fun.   [profile] curiouseb lives out there too. Maybe we can start a commune.

 

Dear New Curb at Work,

Thank you for coming into existence, and for doing so without any warnings. Say, like some nice yellow paint, or a railing, or some such nonsense. Because of your kindness, I fell right off of you. Right.Off. So now I sit here, in pain, with my foot swelling and my toes tingling.

I hate you, curb.

I hope you chip away quickly, or become discolored.

Sincerely,
Tiff



On the plus side (because I need one right now) this IS NOT A HORSE RELATED INJURY. Amazing, I know. My left ankle and the top of my foot hurt, plus both of my knees. I went down hard. The swelling seems to be on the top of my foot, and I fear one the foot bones may be broken. Thought it was going to be my ankle that was the real injury, I don't really know now.

What happened? They have been renovating the building I work in. For the past two months or so, they have had the 1st floor entrance closed while they worked on that, and we all had to enter via the 2nd floor entrance (we are on a hill, so front of building is higher). So, they finished that, and yesterday they closed the 2nd floor, and we are all back to going in through the 1st floor. 

Well, apparently, when they rebuilt handicap access, they installed a SECOND CURB (!!!) before the normal curb that goes down to the parking lot. I don't know the why behind this. So, my carpool friend and I are leaving the office, and BAM, down I go off of the new unannounced, unadorned curb. Louise immediately called our boss, Janice, to tell her; cause one, it happened on the property, and two, I am sure I am not going to be the only one to go walking off the new cliff of doom. They really need to mark this new curb.

Janice asked if I was okay, or if she should call 911 (I think there may have been some sarcasm behind this, we have that kind of relationship). I yelled out that I was fine enough not to need an ambulance, thanyouverymuch. And home we went.

If my foot doesn't seem better by tomorrow morning, I am going to my doc to have this checked out, on the company's dime at that. A new unmarked curb? It's a settlement waiting to happen. And I am not a litigious person, anyone who knows me knows this, so I'm just sayin'.

I can't curl my toes all of the way and they tingle. That can't be good.

Oh, and Bear's all better. Yay!



 

I decided to go to doctor about my hip injury yesterday (yes, I played hooky to go). I am happy to report that I will live many more cranky years. =) He said it is a bone contusion, and that is why the bruising is not visible, cause it's way down there. And it's not my hip joint that I injured, but the top part of the pelvis, called the posterior superior iliac spine. Oh, big words. So, he gave me an RX for my good friend vicodin and anti-inflamitories. He also said that if the pain does not decrease within the next 7-10 days, to come back in for an x-ray to see if maybe there is a bone chip.

And to make the trip there even more special, he told me I am developing high blood pressure. Yay me. See why I haven't been to the doctor in over a year? he never has anything nice to say. Said that we should moniter the second #, and if it doesn't go down, will need to do some testing to see what the cause is.

So, there ya have it. Anything else exciting in my week? Umm.....not so much, other than having Mongolian BBQ yesterday too. That was a treat, cause I haven't had it for months. It was way yummy.

Yeah. I think I may have seriously injured myself. It has been 2 days since I had a wreck and I seem to be getting worse, not better.

My toe is not getting any better. It still hurts extremely bad and I have yet to be able to put a shoe on it, which isn't cool being that it is cold and rainy here. It's been two weeks! And I miss my shoes!!
And, because of Mr. Broken Toe, I missed a show on Saturday. Albeit I had no horse of my own to ride, I had options, such as boring a friends, etc. I still went, and sat up in the announcers booth and MC'd the whole show. It was cold up there, bit had a lot of fun. And I won a $50 sponsor check for my work to use at the State Finals in August. So, yay!
Anyways, I'm getting concerned about my toe. I am thinking of going to the doctor, but haven't decided. I really think there may be another broken bone in the foot itself other than the toe bone, due to the amount of pain. If it's just the toe, nothing they can do. if something else is broken, then that may mean a cast. Arrgghh!!! I want to be able to ride Ruby!
And speaking of her - only 1 more day until I get to bring her home!! **squee**
