Two posts in one day from me! How lucky are you. I had a horrible day, but it ended off good. I will go backwards. So tonight our ward relief society had a journal making night and a lesson on the importance of keeping a journal. They provided paper, composition notebooks, and modpodge. I came home and embellished it with my ribbons and buttons. Want one made for your birthday? Good. Cuz that's what you're getting. I want to add a pocket on the front of this one.
I took a ribbon and hot glue gunned some little pieces together to make a flower. I put them on top of a ribbon that was glued straight to the notebook, and added a button. This ribbon is my bookmark. I know this isnt perfect, but it's my first one. They can only get better.
This is the back. Thanks mom for the buttons!
Got sick of my hair and cut my bangs myself. Dumb. I dont like them. Gotta change up the bangs so I dont have ally cut my hair short again. Trying to grow it out.
Here is the brace I have been in for 3 weeks... and will now wear it ALL The time unless I am getting wet for at LEAST 5 more weeks. I hurt my wrist at work a few months ago and thought it was just a bad sprain. I dropped a heavy box on my left wrist. I was trying to hold it with both hands and it didnt have handles and I didnt get it tight enough with my right hand and it slipped right out and all the pressure went out on my left hand. I didnt want them to fall and damage the books, so I tried to just catch it with my left hand. Bad idea. It kept getting worse and worse and so I finally went into the doc. He put me in this, and then sent me to the hand specialist because my xray looked fine. After wearing it for almost 3 weeks, I went to the hand specialist today. He did a lot of tests on me. It was tingling, falling asleep, and KILLING me after he was messing around with it. Turns out I have the beginning stages of carpul tunal and I also have a pulled miniscus on the side of my wrist. (he wasnt sure if it is torn or not. I will have to get an MRI if it doesnt get better.) He said I have to come back in 5 weeks and if the shot he gave me today doesnt make it feel better, I have to get a scope.
I got a cortisone shot in my joint by my hand. It hurt so bad. Not as bad as my feet, but still bad. I cried a little. Mostly just when I got home to Kevin and felt comfortable enough to actually cry and wail on my bad luck. It has started swelling and hurts worse now than it did before. I had a little reaction to the cortisone in my feet and I am thinking I might be a tad bit allergic to it because now my wrist hurts worse than it ever has. I am a little worried. I think if it doesnt start feeling better by tomorrow night I will call the doc. I told him about my reaction in my feet and how it got inflammed and I had to wear my feet (BOTH) up in the air for a day and ice it like crazy and he told me he didnt think the same thing would happen with my wrist. Well, doc, I think it has happened.. Then, to make things worse, because I didnt fill out workers comp when it first happened, my work will get a pentalty for letting me file now. I didnt know when it first happened that it would be something serious. I knew it hurt really bad but I usually am a baby.. so I didnt do anything about it. What have I learned from thinking I am a baby? Nothing. Broken foot for 3 months, torn miniscus in my knees for a few months, an almost burst gal bladder.. it doesnt do any good waiting till it gets worse. Now, I might be dealing with surgery. I hope not. Funny thing is, I don't think anyone believed me. It always turns out that way. I think people think I fake it because I am sick and hurt SO much that people think it's the boy called wolf until I get surgery or something major happens to make them believe me. Funny. My work was that way. They didnt believe me. So today when I went in to fill out the papers, the lady got SO mad. She was like well, no one has ever gotten hurt here before so you are going to have to wait a few days until I can get workers comp papers and I just think this is dumb because we are going to get a pentelty and its going to be on our record for 5 years.. K BLAH BLAH. It happened at work, and I don't want to pay for it. Deal with it lady. I was really embarrassed at the way she was treating me at work today and talking to me that way in front of everyone. I wanted to crawl in a hole. It's not like I did that on purpose. Oh well. At least I don't have to pay for it.
