Week 3 with horrible pains

Sep 13, 2016 1:54 AM

Sorry I haven't been posting lately guys, but have had you all in my mind ๐Ÿ˜˜
Almost three weeks ago I put my foot down on top of the leg of my fan and it made me Loose balence as it went of in an other direction :/ so not only did I look like bambie on ice flapping arms every where I tumbled down in a side motion rearranging the whole bedroom and hurting my neck, shoulders and back.
First I brushed it of like yeah it's only a bad sprain it'll go away but Monday came and I couldn't move head or arms, trying to lift em left me screaming out in pain. ( wich on a side note mad a neighbor as we live in an apartment complex asking if my hubby was hitting me)
Any who made it to the doctor Monday morning and x rays showed nothing so they said it's bad muscle damage in neck and shoulders and a lil bit down my back as well:(
Was home for 2 weeks and 2 days but I still hurt like *peeeep*
Working with fibromyalgia makes me totally drained but with this extra pain I feel like a walking zombie and if I sleep I sleep 30 minutes.
Got meds but they don't help at all.
Lost the word now (remember Iam a swede ;p) but the lady that helps me with my fibro and other things I've had going in my body told me that she could feel that the neck and back took most of the fall and wanted me to take one ore two more weeks of sick leave (ask doc for it) but if I do I'll soon be livin in a cardboard box on the streets:/ so I'm back at work but feel so bad I can't do much as I work with the smallest kids at the preschool:(
And to top that of I'm back in the school bench (tho doing the school from home) and I just as said feel so drained and I hope the teachers understand me anyway.

As always guys thanks a bunch for listening to all my whining and I'll try to catch up on some posts. Big hugs maddie โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Oh you poor darling ๐Ÿ™ Dealing with your condition and pain from accident has really impacted you . It is so difficult having to go to work with all that pain. I hear your anguish and offer my wishes that pain from accident settles soon .
