Geez! I have had a fairly strange week. Thought I had a week off work to enjoy a break from work but didn't quite turn out that way. Holidays started onThursday 9th April, 5pm. couldn't wait to start relaxing. That evening as I was RELAXING i started feeling a toothache that had been niggling for a couple of days. Just in case I had rang the dentist during the week leading up to my holidays hoping to get in to be seen. No can do they placed me on the waiting list.........lovely.
So, I took a couple of painkillers and thought that would be the end of it. OH NO I headed for the A & E dept of the hospital looking for some stronger drugs PLEASE. Not one to take take any thing foreign but this was worse that any childbirth I SWEAR! Drugs prescribed and I was on my way. Still headed up to Byron Bay after finding out on Thursday that oldest daughter wants her fridge & furniture that she left behind now that she is moving in to a bigger place. Pain persisted for two days, then I had to start another course of antibiotics that Dr prescribed on friday. OK ended back in A & E at Byron Bay, among a lot of sore a & sorry folk who had been at th Blues Festival the night before. I had a reaction to the antibiotics but nothing I couldn't manage after Dr prscribed Maxalon(which i didn't take by the way) I put up with the symptoms and carried on home back to Inverell. I was fine after i got a bit of food into my belly. See I hadn't eaten muvh with my toothache etc.
Did I mention it was my birthday on the 11th April and Easter saturday too , lots of chokkies around too. Missed out on a lot of fun, but all the time trying to get in the spirit of things for the little children around.
I love my husband soooo much BUT let me tell you he is not the best person to have around when you are sick. That's all I can say about that !!!
Last night is the first time that I slept right throught the night without waking with pain. Oh my god! please take the pain away! They (the dentist) wants me to have root canal therapy. Really! First thought yep Ok sounds good save the tooth. Its been too long with the pain and now i 'm thinkin GET IT OUT !! see, just like childbirth except worse I reckon.
Back to work tomorrow, and it looks like my tooth will be bearable enough to do my job GREAT!! Couldn't have happened could it NEXT week COULD IT??I don't take a lot of holidays that's why I have about 450 hours of sickpay accrued. You know why 'CAUSE IF I 'M GOING TO GET SICK IT ALL HAPPENS WHEN I TRY TO HAVE A DARN HOLIDAY!!
IT'S A GOOD THING I LOVE MY JOB. If I didn't I wouldn't still be there after almost 10 years.
