Can I Catch a Break Please?

Do you ever have a weekend when absolutely nothing seems to go right and then it carries over into Monday… that was the kind of weekend I had and so far Monday morning has been the pits… I was in tears all weekend long because my back hurt so bad since I quit wearing the patch… last night I couldn’t take the pain anymore so I put another one on… plus, I was thinking about the 5 hour car ride I’m going to make down to Plano and back to see the neurologist… they called Friday to see if I could come in Monday… I’m looking forward to going hopefully so they can find out what’s wrong with me and what’s causing all the pain in my back and legs… at the same time, I’m dreading the car ride… my back hurt really bad Wednesday after km and I went down to the Texas Back Institute… and the dr. told me that when I saw the neurologist I was going to have “a battery of tests done”…. Oh yeah, to make things even better, I opened some mail this morning from Allstate and they denied every single one of my claims that I submitted for my car wreck… ok, I have paid Allstate on time, every single month, for 6 years now… plus, when I called my dr.’s office to get them to fill out some paperwork I was informed that “we don’t handle accident claims so he isn’t going to fill that out for you”… um, ok, thanks… mind you, this is the dr. who was working on the herniated disc in my back for almost 4 years now and the dr. down at the back institute thinks this isn’t even what’s causing my pain… so now I just called the dr.’s office to see if I could get a copy of my medical records to send to Allstate and the turn around is only 15 days but you have to mail your request in…. even though I’m only working 1.5 hours today it is 1.5 hours too much… I walked in to a disaster and when I leave it’s going to be a disaster… things between R and I have been really tense and not so good lately but that’s a whole blog for another time… I am really trying hard not to freak out… I am just so tired of everything…
