Sent Home From Work
My boss sent home from work today because of my pain. Or, more accurately, my inability to mask my pain level. It's been off the charts lately and it shows on my face. I was practically in tears after making the long climb down the hill to my office, and a few of my colleagues noticed and said something to my boss. I was supposed to go represent my agency at a state-level meeting today, but was told that I was "in no condition" to make the trip, and to go home and rest. Two of the women at the office drove me and my car home, because they and my boss were worried I was too disoriented from the pain to drive safely.
The sad thing is they're not wrong. I feel scared that my pain is making it impossible for me to do my job. The pain is making it hard to think straight. I'm so embarrassed. I prepped for this meeting for weeks, and missing out is going to put me behind schedule. Getting called out on my appearance makes me feel so unprofessional.
I called my PCP's office and am scheduled for the next available appointment, on the 20th. I don't know to cope with this level of pain until then. I asked to speak with a nurse, and explained what was happening. She made it clear they would not fill any prescriptions until I was seen on the 20th, but said she'd speak with the doctor call back.

What happens to us the people that are truly sick & in constant pain & those like me I've had a tolerance my...
A little lighter subject now:I was watching Grey's Anatomy today and they had a guy who was a CPer and allergic to all pain meds. He used porn to control his pain. Apparently, porn releases endorphins in the brain. Does this work for women as well? And could you live with porn 24/7 like this guy (and his wife) did?Anyone ever try this?Just wondering:)Sandy
as is typical(so I've read) about having bipolar, I am bad with money. I maxed out three credit cards in the last several years. Today I got a letter in the mail that one of my cards has been settled. I made a payment arrangement with the creditors and I paid of the biggest card. I'm so relieved. Now I can settle the second biggest card in only four payments! I'm so relieved. My large amount of...
I often find myself in the darkest pits of depression. Although, my family and friends don't even have the slightest clue as to how bad it is due to the fact that I'm very high functioning. I am always the strong one, and the one to pull people out of their dark moments. My biggest battle and issue with depression always fall back to the same issue. My inability to conceive.I'm 25 years old, I've...
