Had the damn cat scan and x-rays.
Haven't discussed it with doc yet, but physio saw what she expected...(bulging disk.)
There's something weird about a nerve and a possible cyst on said nerve.
And general deterioration.
Didn't see much to explain (to my lay eyes) the amount of bother it's all causing!!!! And the MONEY it's costing!!!!
But I had to shuttle between x-ray people (twice..once to get the things, an hour later to pick them up) work (to fill out pay thing, and have a quick discussion re handling some things) and physio...and a bit of shopping. (WHY do shop assistants insist on helping other shop assistants with lengthy tasks while serving you, when standing still makes you want to scream in pain?) This meant lots of driving and quite a lot of walking...plus a position for x-ray that was REALLY REALLY painful, and stirred things up.
Today I am in lots of pain again and think I need a nothing day. Have made the radio work in my room of exile, so I have Radio National, and CD's if I want them!!!
Will likely arrange to have house cleaned tomorrow...couldn't cope with the disturbance and endless questions about what/how/where stuff disturbance today...am seeing a more expert back physio also tomorrow, and need to get back to doctor (likely Monday.)
But I am at last getting to hear about all the leaks and scandals in Oz!!!
Not to mention the really awful news from Iraq and Iran.
And this polly from the US who disappeared to have an affair, and is now mea culpaing everywhere. Like..whose goddam business is it, except he and his wife's? O strange new world!
But found out I at last have the formal invitation to do a heap of teaching in the APY lands!!! Though my work partrner is not invited at this stage, and I don't want to do this alone...it's too big. Luckily my boss responded about that to the invite (ie it should include worker in other region)..who actually visits the Lands as part of a team from her organisation...so, if only one of us goes, it would more justly be her.
Cat's distressed because we now have separate beds. I can't believe I said that, but it's true.
I keep telling her she can come with me, but she sits on me in ways that hurt, and I have to move her, and she stalks off wailing "You don't love me any more!!!"
I mean, she's REALLY distressed.
What next? I have to hire a cat lover?
