I hope y’all had a great day today! My day at work was very busy and long, but I made it through! I honestly prefer the days to be busy when I am at work, because it makes the day go by that much faster!! I hope tomorrow will go by just as fast as today did, and then we can look forward to the weekend!
I did end up leaving work an hour early today, but it was so I could jump through the insurance and doctors hoops. Y’all know I have been suffering with a lot of pain for the past few weeks now, so to satisfy the doctor I went for some initial testing. I guess it is good to do the process of elimination game, before having to pay for a MRI to see if what she called a “Pseudo Relapse”, wasn’t an actual relapse. The doctor should have the preliminary results of my test by Monday or Tuesday at the latest, and then get the final results by Thursday. She is making sure that my increased pain isn’t due to an infection. I suppose it would be better to have an infection that can be treated, instead of a flare up due to enhanced or new lesions. It is just little frustrating considering I did just have blood work done, and I would have thought if there was an infection my lab work at that time would have been abnormal, but I guess that is not how it works. I just do what I am told and hope for the best results possible!
With tomorrow finally being Friday, I am looking forward to the weekend! I am so excited to get my nails and toes done on Saturday! I know I do not typically sleep in, but I can be lazy and do things at my own pace. I can wake up earlier than I should, and then fall asleep watching TV with my precious cats. Considering I am normally tired and want to lay down around 10 or 11 in the morning, I can do that on Saturdays and Sundays. It is wonderful to be able to do things at a leisurely pace and not be constricted by a time clock. Wouldn’t work be a lot easier to handle it we did not have to answer to anyone or focus so much on time? I think we would be more productive and be happier to go to work. I mean, as long as we get our work done, what is really the point of having to be there for SO many hours?
I was honestly in a lot of pain today at work, but again I am trying to focus my attention elsewhere. Being upset about the pain or even thinking about it all day is not going to make it suddenly go away. I choose to be strong, and I choose to continue to fight against the pain I am dealing with. What other choice do I really have, surrender to the pain and allow it to control my daily life? Well, surrendering is not an option for me. I will continue to go to work, no matter how much I do not want to. I will continue to do what makes me happy, like doing my blog daily or shopping online or going to get my nails and toes done for as long as I am able to. For all we know, we get one chance at our life and there is no do overs. For me, I say let’s make the most of the life we were given.
