After hibernating for awhile to try to avoid pain, depression's really idiotic suggestions, and a sinus/throat infection which included laryngitis and horrible fever dreams, I finally had to get it together today and leave the house for another job interview.
So of course I woke up at 4 am vomiting from pelvic pain at level 9 on the scale. Went back to bed with my heating pad and managed an hour of drifting in and out of sleep then I had to start getting ready. Easier said than done when you can't really stand up straight from pain. Thankfully boyfriend brought me some breakfast in bed, and my makeup.
Did most of my makeup but my hands were too shaky for eyeliner so boyfriend did that as well. Then the hardest part. PANTYHOSE. Or evil incarnate. Thankfully it was nice and cool this morning so I didn't mind the idea of another layer, just the logistics of putting myself into something that required body contortions. After the hose everything else was cake.
Brought my heating pad with me because I have an outlet in my car. Could barely walk from parking to interview but made it. Walking back to car was far worse because my meds had worn off, but again I somehow made it. So thankful I made it to and through my interview while in so much pain but now my body refuses to wind down. I'm still in excruciating pain even after 60 mg of morphine. But it's extended release so it doesn't work all at once. Best part of the day was getting to buy a bag of peaches, a bag of nectarines, and a bag of plums for $12 from a farm stand. We have tons of fresh fruit now! Think I'll have a piece of fruit and a relaxing aromatherapy and Epsom salt soak. I need something for this painsomnia.
