I FINALLY got my B12 injection!!!!!!!!!! Walked directly into the allergy department after lunch..the wonderful nurse who heads the allergy dept asked me how I was "I said TIRED" and then I proceeded to alcohol up a big load of cotton...grabbed the vial of Vit B12 and cleaned it...grabbed the proper syringe...drew up the entire thing...recapped it and waited for my turn....She laughed at me in that great contagious laugh of hers as I alcoholed up some more cotton, handed it and the syringe full of the Kool-Aid looking energy liquid to her and rolled up my sleeve..........I HATE shots......LIKE BEYOND HATE...and yet these I will GLADLY pull my sleeve up for.
Soooo I am hopeful that I will get that boost of energy tomorrow....the energy that will sustain me for a couple of weeks...I NEED IT!
Again, I wore my ankle weights, this time alllll day while working...I even had a patient remark about them "You don't get enough with work? You have to add weights too?!"
I had an INSANELY busy morning...3 extra patients...most of them talkers (which I adore with a normal load but today OOSH) and at this office it is just me with the Doc...meaning that I have to bring back my patients....chart on them....prepare...and then clean all of the instruments.....it makes it MUCH more challenging when we are overbooked.
By the time I got to the other office I was already wrung out......ya know the clothes that have just gone through the spin cycle? Yeah, all ragged and wrinkled...THAT is how I felt....I NEEDED to be fluff dried for sure!..Typically Monday afternoons I do paperwork...but today, that would not be the case........this afternoon I was working with a different doctor and didn't stop accept to return patient phone calls, until 4:00 or so............I asked the charge nurse if I could leave a bit early...thankfully she said yes..so by about 4:18 I was on my way to the time clock and ready to go home.
One the way home I stopped at this little coffee kiosk thing and got a sugar free hazelnut frozen coffee...I needed a treat and I had been promising myself to go there and since it closes before I can get to it generally, today was THE day.
So I am exhausted and waiting to get some energy...but at least I am doing SOMETHING for myself.........ankle weights...curls....and dieting well...........though I just can NOT seem to get in enough food...I really don't know how I used to do it!
The sun is just setting in the distance...tonight it isn't going to be a stellar sunset.....but at least it'll show up...kind of like me today:)
There is always tomorrow....and some days all you can do is show up and that has to be enough :)
