Well due to an accident at work on Feburary 2, I am out of work for a while. I was coming down some steps at night and they had been covered in ice. Of couse it is night and couldn't see the ice, and with no railing on the steps, I slipped and fell landing on my shoulder and hip on the right side. I was a trooper (for whatever reason) got up and brushed it off. About an hour later, I am throwing up twice, but still I am going to continue. Well my leg gave out about 4 hour later and I fell again on my right hip. That time there was no getting up. So as a result I have a sprained shoulder, sprained hip and strained sicatic nerve. I have to do therapy 3 times a week and I can't go back to work until cleared by the doctor. So here I am stuck at home. This is very hard for me since I have 3 jobs. And if anyone has ever delt with workers comp, you understand how that is. I have just now received the paper in the mail to take to my other two jobs and the doctor. I won't even see a check from them until I am released. GRIN. Oh well, you do the best you can right? So I am stir crazy from being at home and not being able to do much of anything. Even sitting isn't easy at the moment. I am ready for this to be over with. Not much fun if the highlight of your birthday is going to theapy ! LOL

Just a bit of venting to make me feel better. Even if no one reads it, it is good to get it off my mind right?

Be Safe,
