Not a happy Monday here for me... it's icey cold and get to work and someone forget to order oil for the boiler. No heating at work until Thursday. And to top it all my son told me tonight that his drumming band performance went well in assembly this morning. Which I couldn't go to anyway because of work, but I didn't even wish him luck because I forgot it was today. Sh1te mum alert goes to me. He was the only one without family there to watch him. It sucks being a working mum sometimes.....
Hey, hop off the guilt train! You have a son who got himself ready for a drum performance, went through it without you being there, and was justifiably proud of himself for doing well. Sounds like a kid who's getting prepared for adult life, which, let's face it, often means stepping to the beat of our own drums (ha see what I did there? I crack me up) even when we don't have cheerleaders--and feeling okay about it. That means you are doing a good job! That was not a mom fail. That was a mom win!
As for me--I'm grateful to have a good job, but yo, they be killing me this past month or so. I would like to place an order for a gross of little drink umbrellas and a few cases of dark rum, just to be ready.
I got my MRI results: first, sinusitis, thus antibiotics. Ugh. Next up, some ischemia (reduced blood flow) accompanied by slowed signalling in the white matter. This can definitely be caused by trauma. But then they had to go on and say that, well, it can also be a sign of very early MS. Get another scan in a month ( with contrast) to make sure it is actually healing. Way to make me feel better, doc!!!
And no work for me right now, both on account of the head injury and the back/neck stuff, though I'm good to go for travel and debrief. I got an order for PT for the back & neck.7
I also hit the brewery for a very nice beer right after I was done. Mmmmm...I needed that. Yeah, I know, 'need' is a strong word, and I ought not be usi g alcohol to drown my sorrows. But sometimes it seems like a good plan.
Could be worse. At least I'm not gonna die imminently. But damn...
I saw the shrink again today. The verdict is in. The problems I've been having with the bipolar illness flying out of control and me sleeping half of what I need for a year and a half are because of the abuse suffered in my marriage. He says I am a fighter. I live a pretty clean life, the only drug I do is pot and my use is legal/medical, and I have pretty good habits. He figures we can correct my sleep problems with some lifestyle changes and avoid the use of additional prescription drugs. I can call if I need to, and my next follow-up is in May.
Happy Tuesday everyone. Sunshine and warm finally here in this side of the world. Yay, spring on the way.
Snow has start to melt here and there. Stay safe everyone who's still have bad weather. Let's hope spring
come your way too.
