Thanks everyone! I think I just need to get really creative with ways to rest. I think I may start a thread on that... :)
Rosie, remember the jerk of a coworker I have? He writes everything down that I do, I have to try to look as "perfect" as he is to keep my job, especially in this recession. He has no kids and lives with his parents at 38 years old... so his only life is working, and making me miserable. No comp time for me. I have to take personal or vacation time... but our new boss is looking promising, so maybe things will get less strict than they have been. I truly think workers are more productive when they have more flexibility with schedules.
Stacie, I cant take Flexeril, after a couple of daysof taking it my heart starts pounding hard and feeling heavy. My 17 year old daughter does the same thing with it. I take Soma, it seems to help some, but I only can take a half at a time. I havent tried the Tylenon PM, I think that might be a good idea.
Ginny, LA! I almost went there next week, a coworker is out for knee surgery, but I just couldnt do it physically. They are sending Mr. Perfect instead.
Hippi, Thanks for the kind words. Vicodin makes me itch like crazy! This is what makes my problems worse, there are so many meds available to help, my body just rejects most of them. ((HUG))
