I am anxious for the health coaching course to start in 2 weeks. I know I can help people in a lot more ways, and my background with medications can help me understand when things need to go to the doctor, and what I can help with.
My head pain is still around, between a level 2 and 3 the past week plus. I have quit using the word "headache" because it is unrelieved by medications, and I truly feel that there is an underlying cause, which I want to get figured out. My PCP won't order an MRI, and we are changing me over to a different neurologist. I am in a bind right now because if I change medical groups, all referrals are ended. I want to find out if the new neurologist is going to work with me towards figuring this out or be another "it's a tension headache" doctor before proceeding with any PCP changes beyond the change because my current one is leaving.
Work has just been getting more stressful. The 'puppeteer' is treating employees like we are in the military. Last week my boss was told he was being given a verbal warning for not attending a conference call... a call that we never received the email about! Other emails make it sound like we must not be doing our jobs and serving the community because we are not doing a lot of injections daily... I thought we were a pharmacy, not a nurse's station. Somehow, asking patients if they need any immunizations while they are at the pharmacy seems odd. If someone asks about one, that is different because they are desiring to take care of that matter.
I planted some seeds last weekend for fall produce. There were some packages of older seeds, so I figured I would plant all in the packages I chose, and if it grows that is great, and if not at least I tried. A couple of years ago I tried planting some seeds from produce we had grown, but they did not produce so I thought they were too old or I dried them wrong. About a month ago I was reading something and it said that to do that you cannot use hybrid seeds, only heirloom seeds. So now I will make sure that I check that before buying plants or seeds. I am excited for the future of having a larger piece of property in the country and being able to grow more of our own food so we can can and freeze extra. There just is nothing like the taste of homegrown food!
I feel so discombobulated these days. My desire to go to my current job is very low; I would rather be working on my coursework so I can start working with clients who want help to become healthier. So enough of my ramblings, and off to work I head. Have a good hump day.
