Okay, sooooo the awful sinus cold seemed to be going away but then was promptly followed by a hacking cough and general malaise and sleepiness. I tried to warn mom not to come over for Thanksgiving, but she ignored the repeated calls and didn’t listen to her voicemail.
Fast forward to Monday, she’s sick… *insert eyeroll here* So I go with her to the doctor, we both get antibiotics. Soooo I’m officially sick, but I am also on antibiotics so if there’s anything going on with the leg, I’m covered as I had them look at it too. Weird thing was, she thought it was a skin infection not a bruise.
Also… I DID find some Arnica gel here in the US, it was a bit of a hunt in the department store, but with some help the store clerk and I found some. It was reasonably priced, so I started using it. Wasn’t sure it’d work on a bruise this old, but last night it started itching and after only 1 day of use, it appears to be helping. Thank you all for that bit of wisdom.
Work continues to be a problem, not as stressful now that I’m familiar with the process but keeping the calls short enough to please the almighty phone gods seems to elude me. The customers are thrilled to pieces, my surveys are all in the 100% range, but that doesn’t get me the bonus 😦
I’ll keep trying, as long as I keep the bills paid and stay employed I guess I’m doing okay. I’ll keep plugging along…
