Here's a snapshot of what I've learned in the last four days.
I hate sitting still.
Drugs help, but not mitigate the pain.
Medicine and doctors SUCK. Doctors are rude & stupid, and hospitals are filled with idjits.
I have NO patience for repeating myself, or being interrupted. By ANYONE.
Sunday, they said pulled muscles. Gave me a host of pills. Sunday night, my stomach shot it's contents across the room, violently. Doctor's office had NO answering service. Through a friend of a friend of a.. Found the Dr.s pager #. Boy was he ticked when he called back. After much arguing, he called in a prescription for my striking tummy.
Monday, back to the doctor. Blood in the urine. Went to the hospital, waited 45 minutes, yelled at a desk clerk for not correctly processing paperwork, all for a 5 minute test.
Sat all day yesterday, stoned, hoping to heal. Tried hand washing one skirt in the bath sink, and ended up doubled over, pain at a 7out of 10, wishing I'd die. Took more drugs, slept it off.
Today, Doctor's PA calls, to tell me, "Kidney stone on the right (it hurts on the left), and should pass normally." Other things found on the CT Scan from Monday, unrelated we think to the pain. More tests scheduled, maybe today, but honestly, I'm thinking tomorrow.
So, I go back to an old stand by. Chiropractor at 1pm. I don't know if he can fix it, but this is BULL. I can't bend, I can't walk, I can't sit on the couch without pain. Hard chairs? Forget it.
Pray hard, for answers. The chemist in me says "tell me why!" The human side of me is a bit simpler "Make it stop hurting."
Thanks ya'll. I'll post as I can. It shall be understood at this point the horses hate me, because I am not doing the feeding, I can't ride, and I can hardly stand up to pet them hello. It sucks, and they know it, too.
