Off work and bored

This is week 3 of me being off workwith cracked ribs!!  My GP didnt think there was any point in sending me for an x ray as they said there isnt anything they can do anyway, which is really frustrating as I would like to know how bad it is compared with the last time as the pain was a lot more intense this time.I ahve been given a line for my work for 4 weeks but she said it would be a miracle if I felt ok to go back to work then.. I do feel as if it has improved ten-fold in 3 weeks, but then I go out for a few hours at the weekend with my hubby and it feels worse, so maybe I'm not ready yet.I'm not the type of person to be sitting around the house and am really bored!!  I do a little around the place but try not to overdo it as I really want to get back to my job.  I moved 350 miles to Scotland almost 7yrs ago after meeting Colin on the internet, leaving all my friends and family down south.  I havent regretted it at all but I really do miss my friends, it is so difficult even after being here so long to make friends and I am a really easy person to get on with, but at my age it is harder as people have already forged their own friendships over the years and you havent got those "past experiences" to share with them all, so to be able to get out to work is important to me and helps a great deal.  Anyway enough of me going on, I'm going to iron a couple of shirts for my hubby for work next week.

Sorry about the ribs, I have osteopososis so I have to be careful as well. I have a friend (on the net) who broke her back and she has to lie flat for 3 months, can you imagine that?

I live in York. It was very brave of you to leave your home after meeting someone on the internet. I relation of ours did the same, shes married and very happy, she lives in Hertfordshire now.

Hope you feel better soon.

Best wishes.

Hi and thanks for the message! I cant imagine having to lie flat on my back fro that long, it would drive me mad!! When I broke my foot I was off work for 5 months, it wasnt healing and each time I went to the doctor he said if it hasnt healed by the time you come to see me again we\'ll put a pin in!! I got fed up of waiting for it to happen so when Iwas walking ok on it I went back to work and had not bother since lol. York is a lovely place, I have only been a couple of times and visited York Minster, what a beautiful place!!
