    Checking in…how’s it going?

      The roomate has been ordered off work for two weeks going on short term disability, but does not need to be admitted.

      A physical therapist is coming to help her and I’m negotiating with my doc to refer me to vna so that I can pay them 155 to evaluate me…Roomate’s insurance may cover a similar eval of her….

      I still can’t sleep more than four hours at a shot, because even though we’re in separate spaces, whenever she has to move there’s a lot of screaming…(less than before, mostly because the antibiotics are working, and she’s settled in to a routine about her pain meds.

      It’s just very very hard to listen to anyone in that kind of pain.
      I’ve gone into my detached, checked out, semi-a-hole mode that so endeared me to some relatives during the end of life arc for the husband. I didn’t make a conscious choice to do it, I don’t *want* to be in it, I’m just in it. I just woke up one moring and realized it happened. I’m trying to make myself do more around the house which helps.

      I’m still in abject terror though about a buncha whatifs…and that’s irrational, that’s the anxiety running around in my head.

      Standing is ok.
      Lying down is ok.
      It’s the transition that causes the huge pain.
      She’s also relatively pain free when using my motorized scooter…only trouble with that is, *I* can’t use it, LOL.

      But if she didn’t have the percocet it would be all pain all the time…and one can’t do correct call center work or drive to and from whilst stoned.
