Injury Update and Thoughts
June 10, 2023
I finally talked to someone at the clinic. They know nothing. The xray would have went to the online Dr but they didn't upload results to the pharmacy/clinic files.
He said likely, if it was broken someone would have called right away, but he doesn't know and to call back (again!) Monday.
I told him I'm back to work Monday. 🤷♀️
So. I guess I'm assuming it was a bad sprain and carrying on with life. 😑🤦♀️
I do have some lessons learned or maybe revelations, from this whole experience..
Things aren't always as bad as they look. I would have thought dislocated from the looks of my foot, as did others who saw my blog post about this, with photo included. But after day 3 it got better each day.
The medical system sucks. This isn't new to me. There's a reason I don't have a medical doctor but do have a team of holisitc health workers. Nobody called me back about my xrays. At all. Not only that, I called the walk-in clinic and even they know nothing. The virtual doctor didn't bother to upload results and notes.The business owner said he assumes if it was broken they would have called me. But, he doesn't really know, and to call back Monday. That's 9 days after the accident and I'm back to work then, after losing hundreds of dollars. Nope. I'll just have to consider this a done deal. I can walk and it gets better each day so.. thats it, I guess.
I can never retire. I HATE sitting around, without purpose. I created 2 website in 2 days. But, was off for 7 so far. Fortunately, we had visitors but, even then, I was only able to sit there and talk but not help with the tasks being done.
Even now, I could literally cry as I listen to my 4 wheeler being loaded on to a trailer for only my daughter to ride because I can't go. Normally, I would share my 4 wheeler with my daughter and go for a walk when she's driving it. But I can't go for walks and loathe being a passenger. So, here I sit again.
But, that's another lesson. I don't want to share my 4 wheeler. My daughter needs her own. I'm the type of person who likes to do calm things... Yoga, meditation, walks in the woods, a slow drive with the ATV... and nobody else really likes that so I just do my own thing. This means sharing my ATV isn't going to work. I could have went today and just stayed on my own 4 wheeler, if I wasn't sharing. Unacceptable.
Now, there have been some productive things happening. Like I mentioned, I created 2 website, for 2 different businesses, in 2 days. I also started blogging again. Seems I can't sit still long enough to blog or do online work. In nice weather anyway. But, still, it's not enough.
Please comment if you've been in situations like this and how you made the best of it. I still have 1.5 days left. Haha
