My aunt took me shopping last night at a nice department store. I had an important court date this morning (haven't done anything illegal, has to do
with my mortgage). For this part, I had to go pro se, free legal services have done mainly what they can do, over 6 pr 7 years.
I got a new dress, a light summer blazer and some wedge heeled sandals. I haven't worn heels in some time, other that wide heeled 3-4 inch boots.
Wedges seemed safe.
Court went great. Got all the things I asked for. Walked all over downtown in these comfy shoes. Up and down steep steps in County hall. I was very
happy with them.
I get home and needed to make a call to the opposing law firm. Walked in the den. Tripped on an edge of carpet and the next thing I know I am sort of
midair and hearing someone scream like bloody murder. The scream, was apparently me. I felt parts of my right foot move from one side to another side
along with 4 or 5 feelings like a tearing inside.
I was then on the ground. I attempted to get up. Moving or putting weight on my right foot was NOT going to happen. My cell phone was not charged. I
could not get up into the chair in front of the computer for skype. I crawled, finally, to the unused 'obamaphone' on a charger in the hall.
I called 911. I go to the ER. A PA looks at my x rays, says a bad sprain or major tears. Really, thanks genius. But he refers me to an orthopedic
surgeon. I tell him I already have one, which I do and have an appt on thursday. This PA, probably about 22 years old, says he is sending a Rx for 600
mg ibuprofin to my pharmacy (&*^*%*(%)*%). I don't have a headache or muscle ache, I hurt so much I am still half crying every other minute.
I ask him if perhhaps something stronger can be prescribed. He says "No, we don't do that for this."
I picked it up, but am relying on Meloxicam (an antiinflammatory) my ortho dr gave me for my knees and cyclobenzaprine, a mild thing for back spasms
from my primary dr I had at home. Neither of which are really for pain.
The world has just gone mad. I would have taken a script for 5 days worth.
I will need to find a friend to drop off liquor, a shot or 2 would help me right about now.
Irritated and in pain reldra rant over .
