I could have told you that my hips would suck prior to me driving home, but THEY HURT. I suppose 12 hours and 1,176 km later, this is what I should expect. But, it had to be done, I had to get home. I managed to stop twice for pee/gas/food breaks. I hobbled out of the car each time. It was prolly a sight to behold. But, I just sucked it up and drove on through. Frankly, I'm not sure how I did it, but I did and I got to sleep in my own bed last night which was glorious!
I have a week long vacation this week. Which will be full of residency applications, sleeping, resting, etc. I have to return an outdated library book from my base hospital (which I didn't even realize I had until they emailed me a rather nasty email!). I also have to do some paper work, organize some school papers, call the doctor, and I want to stain an old coffee table we have (I painted it bright blue to move away for med school and essentially ruined it and I want to make it look lovely again).
I have a lot planned and hope these hippies settle down cuz I hate feelin' like this. I mean, really!!?? It is just a bit of instability. My angles aren't even really severe and I'm hobbling around all day hurting. It doesn't make sense how much it can hurt. I realize that chronic pain becomes centrally sensitized, but dang! I need better meds or reduce my activity (the former may be easier than the latter since I can't really tone down the school stuff).
~186 days until I get fixed. woot woot. (which is also the same number of days left in school).
