Yesterday I blogged about how it was supposed to be the worst day for the year because of the time change. I was right, it did end up being a really aggravating day but it had nothing to do with lack of sleep.
First it started with we couldn't get the (damn) car started. Its my Saturn that I bought new in September 1999 so it is a bit old. It has a paltry 156,000 miles on it and I thought it should go for a few more years. It needs an ignition cylinder because the (damn) key won't turn on a regular basis. We are sick of pouring money in it so it is time to move on. But its my favorite car. I am not ready to give it up but its time.
I had to jump out of bed and throw on some clothes to drive my husband to work without thirty seconds notice. I wore my pajamas with a sweatshirt and jeans, boots with no socks, and didn't brush my teeth or hair. I got back home at 8 am and had to be at the hospital for a 9am EMG. That meant I had approximately 30 minutes to shower, dress, eat, brush my teeth, pack my little bag of stuff to take, and my gym bag for later.
I rushed to the hospital, got there in the nick of time, after getting stuck behind three (damn) school buses.
Have you ever had an EMG? They suck. Yes that is the only word to describe it. They send jolts in your hands and then they stick needles in you and grind away tensing muscles that really hurts. Definitely not a fun test.
After all that the answer was inconclusive for carpal tunnel, no real idea why I have tingling in my hands, and off to see a neurologist. I hate inconclusive test results, especially when they are nasty ones. Then I went to the gym to work off some of my aggravation.
Does anyone want to buy a car?
