If It Aint One Thing It's Another!

Because I couldn't get a surgery date for a few weeks I had to take the third shift at work, the 11pm-7am shift. This wears me out. I ended up back at the doctors on Thursday and now have a diagnose of pleurisy.

I knew what it was right away so I put off talking to the Dr. I went to work did 2 shifts 11 to 7 am and Thursday I couldn't take the pain anymore and broke down and went to the Dr. He gave me some very strong pain pills. Pleurisy is viral and what it is... is the lining of your lung fills up with fluid and the added fluid pressure hurts every time you take a breath.

Ok, I've been up long enough, lungs feel like they are on fire, stabbing pain, took pain pill, feeling dreamy need to go back to bed. Night night.

Nancy, I'm with Billy et al on this work thing. Is it because of insurance stuff, or do you somehow hold some sort of allegiance to your peeps at the hospital?

I need you to email me your snail mail addy. I have some packages I'm sending out later this week...one day that I DON'T have meetings after work. You're overdue, and I've only known you for a short time. Email me, sister.

Thanks guys and gals!

Billy, I work per diem which means no benefits. I'm covered on Bruce's policy for medical. So I have to work right up to surgery date to put money away for the 3 months off I'm going to take.

Today is Monday and I have been off work since last Thursday morning. I go back tomorrow night. I am better today because I have stayed in bed and Bruce has taken care of me. Slept a lot. I can breath easy today, without pain, so the virus has worn itself out in my body. I am able to sit and type this without wincing so that is good.

Thank you everyone! XOXOXOX

The LittleFatBastid gets/has pleurisy…not the most special thing a person can have.

Glad to read in your comment you’re feeling better.
