I went back to work today. Figured I would take the take 1 option as opposed to the the take 2 option on the pain meds so spent a good part of the day hurting. But, then was glad I had the second one toward the end of the day when I started to get mind bendingly pained.
Spent too long this morning explaining to the person who was supposed to be the new staff supervisor person as of today (but apparently isn't which I didn't know until after all of this but I still am not sure on the details. I hate work intrigue) just why it is I am overdrawn on sick leave, why I will be overdrawing it more in coming weeks. And NO, it is not something cured by eating "right", avoiding stress, and drinking some herbal tea.
Then uncomfortable discussion with coworker who wanted to be helpful or some such. I don't know, but it really isn't the sort of thing you want to share graphic details around the office about.
The rest of the day was ok...if more than a bit dreadful with the combination of not feeling great and a long list of things to-do.
