Catch Up With Badger; Catch Up With Me
It's been a bit of a mental week for me. I had physio on Monday and spent my time explaining what's wrong with me, then being in pain because of having to test out what hurt when. Tuesday was psychologist, explaining what's wrong with me and testing out what hurts when. Wednesday was acupuncture which just hurt. So, by Thursday when I was meant to have another cortisone injection, I said I'd had enough of it and went without and cancelled acupuncture for today. I'm glad. There's only so long even someone as self-absorbed as a blogger can spend talking about their problems.
Still heard nothing back from the Incapacity Benefit people, and certainly not received any money from them, so I'm slightly baffled as to what exactly I'm meant to do. Now my hands are a little better, I can probably manage odds and sods of work, but not a great deal. Even that's more than I'd be getting on benefits, so I have to decide to work and risk fucking my hands up again or to not work and try to carve out a new career that fits in with the limitations I now seem to have. Both options suck, unless the new career is making gagillions of moneys out of my art. Which clearly is going to happen.
Birthday weekend. Rah!
