If you read my past posts from 2/08, I had knee surgery for a workman comp issue. Right after, I had the flu twice and bronchitis during my recovery. (I was working home health as an aide) I never use to get sick. I never had the extreme upper-body pain. In my neck, but functioning. I even went back to school p/t and finished. Since the surgery, I have extreme pain in the neck, between the ribs, arms, overall pain. I have bursitis and cannot raise my arms above my head. PT made it worse and now they want over $300 besides the insurance. I finally went to the doctor and he said he does believe something was triggered, he tested for lupus (please, God, no), RA and I don't know what else. I didn't go because I didn't think he would take me seriously, but he told me my past tests were borderline before the surgery. It will be a week before the test results. Thankfully, I am a fast typist because with pain and fatigue, I cannot write anymore. BTW, I do have my ssd started but I called my attorney for the status of my case and he never returned my call. Another issue and tell me if my priorities are straight...I found a job that will call me when needed to sit with a bath-tub display and talk to people all day. I can handle this and enjoy the other vendors, too. But, I have been babysitting my 3 month old grandson and my daughter cannot find anyone at the last minute and on thursdays when I was asked to work. She offered to pay me a little $$$$ to help out. She can't afford too much. I figure family first and with Faith, it all works out. I love this child and love the bond I have with him. I said no to Thursdays and work on weekends when I can...How do you all feel about that? I gave up an 11 hour day on Thursdays. I wanted this day to come up, the person that had it has a bad back and could not do it anymore. What would you have done....? thanks.
