I had a nasty fall on my night job over a week ago, it hurt like hell but I kept working. I gave my supervisor a drive home and drove home myself. I pulled the car into my driveway and climbed out of the car, the pain amplified insanely. I hobbled up the stairs and needed my wife's help to get my work-shoes off and a crawled up the stair and lied down in bed: and the pain shot through the roof when I tried to lay down I started shaking and felt like I was going to vomit...off the the E.R. we went.
It turns out I have a compression fracture in on of my lumbar bones. Still waiting on a visit with a specialist and an MRI to see if anything is worse. I heal quickly so I'm already a little better but standing for over a couple minutes is ridiculously fatiguing, it is uncomfortable to sit for long and the pain mixed with meds makes it hard to concentrate (which makes my day job in front of a computer almost impossible).
Visiting specialist tomorrow, and physical therapy on wednesday unless the specialist says "no that would be bad". Not sure when I'll be able to get back to day job or night job.
The whole stupid thing is eating into my game playing and blogging of course, had to cancel the last session of the game I DM. My blogging already suffering from change in job schedules has suffered more becasue of the injury. I'm not gone and I can't even say I'm not going to post more soon (the wife's tablet might allow more frequent posting). So not gone, not saying goodbye just another reason for less posting than I would like. I do have a notebook that gets my drug and fatigue fueled scribbled into it now and again, hopefully I'll get a few good posts out of that.
