So, uh...  
A lot's happened in the past month. Some of it I can't talk about, some of it I really don't want to, but will probably end up whining more about it anyway. And then I will distract you with gross things and post-con stuff.

From the beginning:

So I've fucked up my back somehow. Like, slept on it wrong then made it worse, sort of deal. I've been in moderate amounts of pain for the past three weeks, verging on severe in places, and all of it in the bad area under my shoulder where the worse of the scoliosis damage was before my surgery.

Oh yeah, I had scoliosis as a kid and back in 2004 I had a bunch of metal shoved in my back to stop my spine from defying science. Yes I set metal detectors off in the airport. No they didn't let me get bionics. I'm in a medical journal somewhere.

Anyways. I ended up going to the emergency room over it (after my mother called in a bunch of favors, got me some big honkin ibuprophen pills to tide me over and then was bluntly refused a script for an x-ray by both my orthopedic surgeon and my old family doc without an appointment. their patient visits are about 400 bucks uninsured.) and they took x-rays, said all my hardware looked okay, that it must just be stress making my normal occasional muscle pain worse, gave me more meds, told me to take a load off and sent me home.

Week and a half later, still hurts. And I'm constantly queasy from the meds, depressed from them too, a raging bitch to a few of the people I've talked to, and still just as stressed out as before. My period also decided to start three weeks late, so double dose of wonderful hormones and emotional instability there. Yay PMDD. I'm missing work too, to the point where they just took me off the schedule for next week because they don't know if I'm going to be up for it or not.

So now I'm broke on top of things. With a bill pending from the hospital visit.

I need to apply for medicaid.

School starts in three weeks.







Eh, I'll do post-con later. Matsuri was fun, and there were moments of awesome, and I guess I could share pictures when I'm in a less...cranky mood. Heh.

>: Are they not showing for you?

Otherwise careful, there be screws poking out everywhere in there.

Oh, no, they're showing. I was just poking for the sake of poking them xD

D: but it looks pokeable

They'd have been really cool had they not been quickie x-rays, and actually showed my spinal column and stuff.

If you insist on poking, can you poke that one on the bottom? It's out of alignment and tells me when it's going to rain. Whether I want it to or not. It's my 13th screw. It's either the annoying retarded one that just goes derp, or the angry, emo Roxas one that just decides to screw the rest of my hardware and go off his own way.

*pokes bottom one* Although I'd love the power to know when it's going to rain D:

Shi, do you have an icon for everything? XD

I already know when it's going to rain! I have an arthritic hip for that can smell it coming and stuff.

I have been told I do xD

Ooh, is it shiny? avaliable on the market? :O

Wow, that's kinda interesting. I couldn't imagine having screws in my back. Thorns in my side, yes. Screws in my back, no.

Oh by the way, remember when you told me I could prolly take the YUDU and exchange it if I needed to? Well I can't. Someone wrote "damaged" on the side of the box in very permanent marker and scribbled over the barcode.

Blagh. Amanda must have done that cause I totally didn't notice. Does it work, at least?

And you missed a lot of the scoliosis thing, didn't you? I got out of my backbrace freshman year, and then had surgery the year after I graduated.

The screws aren't so bad, besides the 13th one at the bottom being, well, screwy, it's the little hooks attached to the little connecting rod in my shoulder that's the fun shit.
Ryune, that's terrible: kh // roxas // D:taistoi on September 4th, 2009 02:51 pm (UTC)
YAY SCOLIOSIS CLUB! *hifive*

Never got the operation to fix it though so every time I go to yoga or exercise everyone's like "ur alignment sux omg what is this"

But dude. Totally sympathizing, and goodness, those look unfun. Hope your back gets better.
