Wow, almost a week??????

This has been a busy week. I'm still not very fast with my computer entries for my evals, so I'm doing a lot of that at home and that means that I am using my blogging time for work. Nonetheless I'm getting a lot faster and learning the shorthand that lets me fill things in later quickly. Not that tomorrow is going to be a short day; it won't be since I'll have a lot of stuff I didn't do today because I had NO.TIME. Today was so stressful that I'm in physical pain and have even resorted to icy hot, something I HATE because I hate the smell so much. I went so far as to schedule a Mon. evening massage because this muscle tightness is killing me. I have no idea if I can tolerate a massage, but have been kind of meaning to try to challenge myself. Dr. Mind will/would kill me if he knew because it's a big step that could have negative consequences, but I'm fully aware of them and will leave if I can't handle it, and I didn't want to talk about the negatives. I know.

This week has just been intense. Work is wonderful. This is what I'm ready to do and am skilled at right now. However, the learning curve is big and I can't believe I've already finished nearly 3 weeks of my 13. I also have a LOT of patients to see, no desk, and so organization is big. However my windows were installed with a lot of drama, including the crew deciding it was ok to mess with the volume on my Ipod dock. It is NOT ok to touch that as that alarm has a very high volume setting and that is how I get up for my AM meds.

I'm also trying to figure out various money scenarios. My car is going to need replaced relatively soon. I need to pay off some student loans and one credit card before I can do this. However, I am spending a whole car payment on one medication each month as my insurance won't pay. So I need to find out if we can re-appeal or if I can get a compassionate use voucher that I probably don't qualify for.

Just a lot on my mind. I feel like (because I did) I ran from 5:45 AM until now with one 30 minute break b/c they accidentally scheduled me at the wrong time for Dr. Mind and I forgot and he didn't know I was there so he left me sitting for a long, long time.

Anyway, something more clear will follow eventually. Next couple days are weird with pet-sitting at my mom's, a trip to Cleveland to see Dr. Brain, etc.
