Marm's Conundrum
Basically just whatever I feel like writing.
Emergency Room

Today was a rough day. I went to work at 9:30 am, despite the horrible pain in my back. I was having a really difficult time walking and had started to limp around the office. By noon, my manager asked how I was doing. I told him I was in a lot of pain, and he sent me home.
I called my mom, and we decided it was best for me to go to the emergency room, as I had started to have shooting pains down my legs. I sat in the waiting room for around two and a half hours before they finally put me on a bed. A physician came in and did a physical exam, only to tell me they couldn't do much more than prescribe me some pain medications and suggest a spinal doctor and physical therapy. The whole visit lasted around 4 hours, just for me to see a doctor for 5 minutes.
I really wasn't sure what else to do. I made an appointment with another doctor, but they can't see me for another month. Urgent Care wouldn't do much better for me, either.
My manager told me to stay home tomorrow as well. Hopefully the pain meds and anti-inflammatories will help. I also really hope that I can get over my writer's block and make some progress on the fanfic I've been writing.
I don't really have much else going on. I can't clean because I can't stand or walk with the amount of pain I'm in, and I absolutely can't dance.
I just hope that things get better soon.
