I am in pain, excruciating, mind-numbing pain. This is not something that happens to me, I can take pain, so if I am not blogging, not working, not moving, the pain is bad, real bad.
So, you would think I know what it is that is causing me to lay in bed all day, everyday, while my kiddos are slowly forgetting everything I have taught them. They think I am never coming back and why wouldn't they, after the principal, AP, 2 nurses, a wheelchair, a blood pressure machine, and the lady with the alligator purse came bursting into my classroom last Wednesday, they thought I was dying. I wasn't, but I wanted to.
UTI they said, nope can't be, I don't have any symptoms. Take the antibiotic, go back to work, you will be fine, they said. Two days later, I cried the entire day at work. My back was derailing and I couldn't do a thing about it. The cramps, they were back. Everyone said kidney stones. Ok, could be.
Come Monday, I had to be escorted out of work again and sent to the ER. 8 hours later, NOTHING!!!! Sounds like kidney stones, your pain is indicative of kidney stones, but no stones. Just infection, now in the bladder and the kidneys. There might be sand in your kidneys. Oh, good, that trip to the beach was well worth it.
One week later, I still cringe and cry. I can't work until Monday and I can't do anything else. I am writing this to get it off my chest and to ask for prayers from my blogging buddies. I need the pain to go away. I don't know how to rest and not be a teacher. I want to go back to my babies.
Thanks for listening to the ramblings of a Percocet filled mind.
|Who looks like this when they have kidney pain? Pretend this is me, this is what I look like right now, LOL.|
