Livestreaming now until 10ish PM EST ^^ picarto.tv/live/channel.php?watch=jitensha
Moving Livestream just to tomorrow (Sunday) 2-10PM EST. I bumped the end time to 10pm to make up for today...
Doctors and Sergio are forcing me to 'relax' today >.>;
So everything went fine....it just hurt like a MOFO. The procedure itself was like 5 minutes, and in total we spent like....4hours there. It was the worst wait ever! I hope so bad I never had to do this again. The anesthetic hurt so bad...I mean, I've had local anesthesia before, but when that shit is in your spine, holy fucking christ. So they injected cortisone into 2 vertebrae in my tail bone, which makes me feel a whole lot better. As physically active as I am, I do spend A LOT of time sitting, and my granny doughnut cushions only help so much.
I've had daily tail bone pain for the past 7-8 months, also known as 'coccyx', or as I call 'ass pain' because no one knows what coccyx is lol. It hurts when I sit for a long time, when I exercise, poop, have sex...pretty much anything that would put pressure or press against my tail bone = pain. I'm going to have to start doing certain Yoga poses (The doc recommended them lol), continue with the pillows and hope that I just fell on it one day by accident (maybe at the gym?), and that it'll heal with time. If this is a reoccurring issue, not injury related, I will be devastated. I told the doctor on the way out in the nicest way possible "I hope I never see you again!". XD
I know it seems really stupid, it was the first time I did a procedure like this, but I was so scared! I kept a poker face on as I left the office, and the second I got into the car I just burst out in tears. I was terrified! I am grateful though they could see me, and that the pain is MUCH better. I'm still tender from the injection site, but my tail bone is not hurting like it was before. I was starting to stress out that I would even get help at all. I actually had a an orthopedist appointment earlier this week, skipped my lunch break and came to work early, just so I could go to my appointment, only to find out she doesn't treat tail bone issues, she's more of a 'joints specialist'. Would have been nice if the receptionist and doctor communicated -_-; So that's why we had to make a last minute weekend appointment...I don't really want to keep disappearing while at my still somewhat new job.
To top it off, last week I had another scare, I was having Aura symptoms with my vision, which terrified me to no end! Hand and eye issues are always high priority issues when it comes to my health...for obvious reasons
Diagnosis was just over stimulation of the eye....basically I'm on the computer AND sitting too long. WELL DUH. *sigh* I have some prescription drops and I'm getting some prescription computer glasses, apparently my cheap eBay bought computer glasses are a POS when it comes to my issue
I normally don't listen to Sergio when he tells me to relax, but this past week reminded me how mortal I am, and I got to take care of myself, and be a responsible adult...wehhhh!! I hate this...........
I'm going to roll around in bed now like an old granny and sob and ice my poor tushie. I'll try and pop in on my phone now and then ; ; Thanks for understanding guys....T^T
