I've been too busy to get myself on here and see what y'all been up to. I shall sit here for a bit and read up.
Today is my first day off on my "new" schedule with work. I am only working 4 days a week now. I'll be working Mon,Tues, Thurs., Fri. and take Wednesdays off. It has taken many months for me to get to this point. I was actually feeling scared and nervous to make such a change. It does mean I am going to lose some money but I don't have a somewhat normal life when I'm fighting myself everyday to function and expect myself to not let all the work/stress that is involved with my job get the best of me. So, I went in to talk with my boss and I started crying like a dork! We are pretty close (compared to past employers) so I wasn't mortified. I just didn't know what to do for so long that I guess the pent up frustrations just came out.
Anyways, my boss thought I could take the day in the middle of the week off and I thought about
it and figured that might work. He did offer up disability but I figure I can't live on it plus I really would be bored at home. And, no I can't do my job at home. Taking this one day off is to be a trial. If it works, great. If not, my boss said we'll figure something else out. Why I waited so long to talk to him I have no clue. I'm just paranoid life as I know it is going to crumble around me if I make to much of a change, I guess.
I haven't been able to ride my stationary bike for about
2 weeks. I have to cram my chores in on the weekends and of course they just fly by. I have for a long time been putting a good couple to a few hours a day on the weekends to just veg., relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. But stress at work, which is unavailable with what I do, is just bothering me more I guess and I can't get in the exercise I know I need. I've been taking my pain pills way more than usual which I don't like. I know when I see my doc this Friday he will probably want to up my Gabapentin or something but I Don't Want to. I hope cutting back on work will help my pain levels and give me a chance to ride my bike my days off at least.
Well, I just wanted to share.
See ya around.
