My back pain of earlier today has not yet gone away. I am afraid it may be my kidneys that hurt and not my back (how exactly would one know the difference? I am not that in tune with my kidneys to know how they feel on a regular basis). I am attempting to rectify this situation by drinking Cran-Aid, which will not help.
Also, I have restless legs. Again. During the day, at work, which is nearly unbearable. I have had them a lot the last few weeks. I get them primarily when I am overtired (hopefully, the new mattress will fix this problem) or have been inactive (not a problem of late, due to gym membership and insurance requiring 12 visits a month to get a discount).
So I’m sitting here in my cube, trying to find a comfortable position to sit in (slouch? extremely good posture? something in the middle? doesn’t matter – I just hurt), drinking tea that is not helping, and wanting to rip my legs off so they can run around the office without me for a while to burn off all the extra energy they seem to have.
In other words, I think I could cry.
It’s only 2:14. I want to go home, and I want to go home now. Of course, the earliest bus leaves at 3:30, and I usually ride the 4:30 one, and is it really worth it to take 1 hour of sick time? I’m not sure. Will I feel any better at home? Probably not, unless I decide to go to bed for the day, which is unlikely.
In other news, the one task I’ve been avoiding doing all week – still haven’t done it yet today.
