SO many people have told me how much energy and time it takes to heal from a reportedly serious injury..... and I realize it over and over. Oy. I'm sorry but I just don't think that this should be continuing on, I think 2 weeks is plenty of down time don't you?? Yeah, I know, 6 weeks, blah.
My arm and I had a little discussion just now. I told it how it has had an entire afternoon of rest and it reminded me that I have little say in how good it feels. I think it was being just a little lippy. It is sort of owie right now.
Ok, update: I went to school Monday, I was partially incoherent much of the day. Really- there were times I could not finish sentences. I also felt on the verge of an emotional breakdown for reasons I can't really explain. I made it through the morning and went on to the elementary and taught wildly changed and altered lessons to the little ones. I have a nice prep time at the end of the day on Monday and I spent that time popping pills and trying to recover so I could go onto the last segment of the day: beginning scenery preparation for the school play....
Shall I say that I had a little dinner and then did not move much for the next several hours. AND I fell asleep at the end of Ellen's furniture design show, so I don't know who got kicked off. DON'T TELL ME EITHER! I'm going to find it this weekend and watch it again. I was awake for a new series called "Better Call Saul" which is looking to be really good. I need something to replace Boardwalk empire.
I actually woke up and felt pretty good, but I knew that 2 days was going to be too much, so I rested this afternoon. Apparently this was a smart plan, as I can't imagine what I'd feel like after 3 straight hours more of teaching. I really really thought I would bounce back you guys. I never in a million years expected to have to have periodic recovery periods. Ach.
Well tomorrow I will be hopping back into it, including after school scenery painting. Hopefully it will be a little easier than Monday.
I live a boring life these days. LOL.
I hope that you all have found yourself a little bit of joy today- mine was walking through the lunchroom today and I had a chorus of greetings from some very cute 3rd graders. Made me smile SUPER big!
Sleep well and dream big everyone! :)
