I am back to work after my glorious six week hiatus. I got exactly 11% of things done that I needed to get done. Between my additional health issues starting on day one, then adding in rehab, some small crisis things, and just the in general crazyiness of the time off my time was fully booked. Unbelievable.
On a good note, those first two weeks were spent adjusting to the new medicine that made me feel like a small pile of horrible sad. I am now much more stable and much less likely to suddenly make drastic irreversible decisions. I think if I had stayed at work I would have quit my job and then when I adjusted to my medicine been like,” oh hell what did I do!”
I go back to that doctor tomorrow and I’m assuming he will, as he said he would, recommend now doubling the dose of that medicine to get me up to the recommended dosage. We’ll see. I hate the thought of another four weeks of being sad.
I find myself struggling to find time to do things.
I’ve been discussing with my building manager in my office building leasing a space, personally, to use as an exercise area. How goofy is that? The building has many many offices in it, and I see other people who like to get in a good brisk walk at lunchtime. If it starts seeming feasible I will put notices up and ask if anyone else in the building would be interested in co-leasing or sub-letting a small office that we could keep a few small low impact pieces of equipment in. A mini-tramp, a gazelle, a stationary bike. Whatever – just something that could be used on breaks or lunch time to get the blood moving.
If the rent was $250 a month, and I could find a dozen people, that’s $20.00 a month. I could swing that. Well worth it to have some place to dash off to for 15 minutes. Probably won’t happen, but you never know.
I’m currently sitting in our office conference room because now I also have to find time to walk for a few minutes every couple of hours and then put my feet up -(feet over hip height) for a few minutes. I am so high maintenance! It’s a good thing I work in a casual office and where the people are use to me being odd!
Alright, enough lymp drainage. Feet on the floor, computer back on the desk.
haha, it’s the conference room where my feet are currently up at!
That’s Mike, Steven & Peter.
