Can't believe I am on the third day back to work after a month leave of absence. I absolutely cannot forget any of the Mestinon pills as my vision was not good yesterday morning and the day before I took only 2 instead of 3. The afternoon pill is hard to remember but I think it will get easier to remember especially when I get blurry vision when I forget it.
Work is still not "normal" but I was hoping for a change in activities as sitting at the computer 8 hours a day is hard on my whole body and I was on the computer less than 2 hours yesterday.
I am getting "work-hardened" gradually which I appreciate.
The forms and formalities around medical issues is a bit of a problem especially when the insurance company becomes involved and so I am still waiting for approval for theapy for elbow tendinitis which is a new work 'injury" (actually related to my work, sitting at the computer typing 7.5 hours a day). For now, I am icing my elbows 3 times a day and sleeping with splints on my hands for the tendinitis in the fingers.
Hope everyone has a great day...today is my first day using my new tinted computer glasses. I got a little razzing regarding my visor (one lady thought I looked like a card dealer and said "hit me," and a guy said I looked like a "bookie.") I don't mind a bit cause I know it looks a little strange to wear a visor indoors in the winter time. I noticed that not only the light from the overhead flourescents and my computer were bright but also the 12-foot tall windows I face were a problem in the afternoon...so am glad my dark glasses have arrived.... now I hope they aren't too dark....
