If I had to rank today, I'd give it a 1/10. The only reason it's not a 0 is because I put up some Thanksgiving decorations today ... and decorations of any kind always make me happy.
The drive to work today was terrible. I left the house 2 minutes later than yesterday but got stuck in horrible traffic, which resulted in a lot of start/stop motion ... the nausea I felt was unbelievable. I almost turned around and went back home. If I hadn't just come off of 3 weeks of sick leave I definitely would have headed home ...
I had an ultra-short class today ... my cramps were just so bad that I couldn't see straight. I am not exaggerating. I had to force myself to keep my head up and walk straight. It was downhill from there ...
Although I had finished teaching early, I still had a few errands that I had to run today. Tomorrow is already packed - with a class, a meeting, and tons of pre-Thanksgiving prep ... so I dragged myself through my errands - pacing myself and taking lots and lots of deep breaths. The painkillers I'm taking do not seem to be working at all.
At home I finally got a chance to rest a bit. It's never easy trying to relax when you're in pain - as I've said several times during my recovery! I know I'm whining ... but it is what it is.
