Pelvic Pain Blues
My day of fun yesterday has turned into a day of pain today. I was stupid and went walking without my cane BLING. I thought it wouldn't hurt to just amble around without BLING's assistance. WRONG.
Have been suffering all day and part of last night from pelvic pain. This is a pain I can't escape and I can't make better by sitting or standing or any position. Trying very hard not to take any pain medication as I have to work tomorrow. We are getting way too close to this installation for me to go down now.
Working from home today most of the day. I had emailed my files to use for some data conversion fixes last Friday and pulled them in this morning. Takes a bit of massaging of the data for me to "create" the records that need to be there. Then I have to load the data and verify the data. I also tried to catch up on documentation of "incidents" that are customer related. It's been hard to do because sitting is not pleasant at the moment.
I am a bit concerned because when I unloaded the data in the table there were spaces after data in fields that should not have spaces, and my upload definitely did not have spaces. That means either a user added the spaces which should not have been possible or the program itself is putting in the spaces or we converted spaces. AUGH! I see tedium ahead figuring out what happened when.
My funometer must have filled up more than I realized yesterday as I am feeling fairly cheerful today, even with the unbearable pelvic pain issues. I guess my doctor wasn't kidding when he said I needed to use my cane all the time. Duh on me. I was sorta afraid I would be like a bull in a china closet with slinging BLING around bunches of antique dishes. That sort of accident could be costly!
Going to bed soon. Hoping my body will behave itself tonight. Today was not a fun day at all. Of course, since my pain resevoir for pelvic pain is running over, all other parts of the body have been filling up their pain tanks too. Tommorrow will be much better I am positive!
