manic monday doesn’t even begin to cover it.
So yesterday I worked what I thought was OT to cover for some of the supervisors that couldn’t be there. No prob, right? I mean, a girl can use the extra dough! It was a fairly easy day. BF, who got to sleep in yesterday (I was very jealous) surprised me by offering to meet me for lunch. So we grabbed some soup and sandwiches (delish!) from Panera Bread. It was so nice of him and really made working on a Sunday bearable for me.
Since I worked yesterday I assumed this would be a less-harsh Monday than usual. I also knew that I absolutely HAD to call my doctor to follow up on my heart situation and test results. When I finally got ahold of the doctor I explained that the palpitations have increased in intensity and frequency. The doctor told me to go straight to the ER.
I was in the middle of training a new hire at work and had to bail on him. Not to mention, I’m at a point where I really cannot afford to appear to be “slacking off” in any way.
I called BF, he almost panicked, but I explained it was just a precaution. He wanted to come with me, which I thought was sweet and I was completely appreciative, considering I was terrified! I also called my dad just to let him know that I was OK, but going to the ER. I think he has been sensitive to the fact that things do happen to peoples children, so he felt inclined to leave work and drive 45 minutes to meet us at the ER. It was sweet of him, too!
I’m not going to vent my frustrations here about the emergency room doctors and nurses and their lack of professionalism, but needless to say, some needles, blood samples, tests, poking and proding, and waiting… and they said I “seemed fine.”
Let me tell you. I. Am. Not. Fine. Having severe palpitations where you almost lose consciousness because of lack of oxygen?? Not healthy. I know my body and my health. This just recently began happening out of no where. This is not normal.
So BF and I went out for a very late lunch (we were starving while we waited) and then did some window shopping. Decided to take a nap (SO nice) and watch a movie. He was really focused on helping me to stop worrying about what was going to happen to me, health-wise.
He did a great job. 🙂
So even though the doctor said I have to temporarily suspend my workouts (and therefore my 1/2 Marathon training–BUMMER!) BF and I took a leisurely 2 and a half mile walk after dinner (Veggie Lo Mein – my fave!).
Have I mentioned that he is wonderful and caring?? Anywho, the drama that was today has exhausted me completely. I’m getting some Z’s!
PS. Love, love, love, LOVE my new layout from Krystyn! What do ya think?? 🙂
