I've been in the midst of a mild flare-up for several months now. I'm only occasionally in pain (Thank God!!!), but the lack of quality sleep is really starting to get to me. My immune system, which has always been weak, is being compromised. I think I have either a UTI or a bladder infection, but I can't go to the doctor because my insurance hasn't come through yet. As of yesterday, the pain and stiffness returned. Last night, my arm was aching because cold had set in it. It's not severe pain like I experienced during the summer, but if I keep at the pace I'm at now -- it will be. The pain was so bad the even Vioxx didn't help. To top it all off, I'm still dealing with the work crap. I'm building my case so I can ask to telecommute two days out of the week...but that takes time. Time I don't really feel I have anymore. I somewhat feel I'm on the verge of collaspe. I can't concentrate at work, and this is hindering my productivity. I don't know. Maybe I can use my lack of productivity as a way to prove that my supervisor not rejecting my reasonable accommodation is affecting my health. Just needed to vent. Thanks for reading.
