Then I started a new job and the pain came back with a vengeance. I now end each day with negative spoons and need to spend the whole evening and weekend resting. I knew my decrease in pain was too good to be true. Friday night after my first week of work I lay awake all night in agony, until I took a pain killer and a tylenol pm at 5 am and dozed off around 6 am only to wake up again a 9 am in pain.
Every morning I wake up excited about my new job but dreading taking my first painful step out of bed. Ugh! I find myself needing more pain medicine just to function. I don't like taking pain medicine and try to avoid taking any medicine as much as possible, but I also want to be able to make it to work and do a good job. I see my pain management doctor again soon and I will discuss this with him.
I am also going to get a power scooter so I can take my dog out for walks. It is not fair to Penny that I can't take her for walks.
If I get a scooter I will also be able to shop, shop, shop til I drop with the money I make at my new job. There are a few fun things I want to buy. Right now, without a scooter, shopping 'til I'm dropping means about 20 minutes. That's not even enough time to buy anything. I hope I can spend three or more hours shopping with my very own power scooter. And if I have my own scooter, that I paid for, and belongs to me, then the store employees can't give me dirty looks, ask me if I really need that scooter, and try to kick me off of it. Take that mean employees!
Lots of Love from your scooter happy Angie
