i saw my doctor today and had another x-ray. it showed the final splinter [remember there were 4 originally] still hasn't attached to the bone fully, therefore it "catches" when i move my arm in certain directions. [yes, it hurts]. he assured me this would eventually attach fully, that my body would surround it with scar tissue, and "naturally" buffer it down so it wouldn't be "catching". he also said that could take up to a year. in the meantime, i have to live with the pain. we will re-evaluate again in 6 weeks. until then i am off work. and there is the possibility that it may be until June before i can return to work.
also, because i have been "separated" from my previous position, [and it has been filled] my healthcare insurance is on the line. i should be receiving information about what will be available to me by next week. however, i may have to get a lawyer because so far what i have been told is they will offer me cobra for $600.00 per month. WTF? i can not afford that! i am only receiving 2/3 of what i normally made! we are very "incomely challenged" at the moment. AND with this injury, i have lost the accruement of all of my paid time off, income being put into my retirement fund, and 401K.
pardon my French but they are fucking me up the ass without KY.
so it's not really happy news, peeps.. but i NEED to remain positive and NEED to believe this is all happening to me for a reason. i may need help with that. right now i feel discouraged, and fearful of my future... both financially AND physically.
i will post again when i am in a better place. right now i am going to go curl up in bed and nap. maybe this is all just a bad dream and when i wake up i will be;
1.) still employed
2.) completely healed
what are the odds...
