Its really one thing after another with me. 😅
Thursday at work I injured myself…spilled hot tea on my hand/arm and burnt the hell outta it. 🥺
At first I didn’t think much of it. It hurt like hell, but I’ve burnt myself before and I figured it was fine. I went and put some aloe junk we had there. I soon noticed some skin peeling. And this one guy there commented that it was a bad burn and needed to be wrapped or something so it wouldn’t get infected. I showed the manager and she told me to go home and have my parents take me to the ER. The guy that had looked at the burn earlier drove me home which was super nice. 🙂 I called my parents on the way so they’d unlock the door (this was like almost 5:30 am) 🤪
When I came in I was bawling. It hurt so bad. I never had anything hurt so bad. 😭 We went to an ER. They had me run cold water on it, then they put some liquid stuff on it to numb it, they cut open some of the blisters, put something like Neospoin on it, and wrapped it.
Had to make an appointment to go to another hospital to get it looked at at a burn center. Later the one manger at work called to check on me, as did the owner.
I went to the burn center today. They unwrapped it and looked it over. Its so ugly. Some raw patches of skin, and more blisters. But they said its healing pretty good. They showed me how to clean it, put some cream on it, and dress it. Supposed to do it twice a day. That part hurts a bit. I still hurt just no where near as bad as when I first did it. I gotta go back again on Tuesday.
I’m out of work till at least Wednesday. And work is going to be covering the doctor bills. Honestly I feel funny about that. My mom and sister said I shouldn’t since it happened at work. But, it wasn’t anyones fault. What happened was the filter where you put the tea bag, after brewing some unsweet tea, I went to dump the tea bag and the filter thing didn’t drain all the hot water like it should and it dumped all over my hand. So yeah, no ones fault. Just an unfortunate accident. I just feel weird about it…cause I’m not like looking to get anything from this. Just trying to do what I’m supposed to do. And no cause any trouble or stuff like that. 🥺 Just feel funny about it. *shrugs*
But overall I’m okay. Most of the burn was more on my wrist and arm. The top of my hand did get burnt, but the arm took most of it. At least I can use the hand part. Which means I can type. 😆 Still trying to take it easy on it, and not using it more then I have too since its very sore yet. Mostly where the raw skin is. But as I said overall I’m okay. 🙂
So, I went to the doctor yesterday. He gave me some new antibolics. Can’t say yet on whether they’re helping with the UTI. Too early to tell.
Work today was…rough. I was in a lot of pain and just felt sick from the nausea. Even after I was still in a lot of pain.
As for my bowel issue. Well I took some medicine I picked up from the drug store yesterday. I was bleeding again, but finally could go. Still blood though. My mom’s convinced it hemroids. Long as its not anything too horrid. One thing I have to say is the pain seemed to lessen after. Not sure if its a coincidence or not. But whatever.
Tomorrow as far as work I’ll see. If I start hurting bad I’ll just tell them I have to go. I do get sick of being the idiot that sucks stuff up. Especially when you have these wussy people who go home over everything. Well that would be one thing, but you get the ones who do it every week and pretty sure they don’t want to work. Just gets irritating when you’re pushing yourself. But, that’s also how I am too. Meh.
Just one more work day to get through.
…Not. 😛 Seriously I swear I have more problems. That’s why my mom called me her arby. 🤪
Also if you rather not read about um…UTI’s and bowel issues, feel free to skip the rest of the entry.
So what this time? Weeeell if you read any past entries you may know (or not) that I have issues with UTI’s. Last year I had one for like three months. I apparently am very prone to them. I was put on small dose antbolics to try to keep it like at bay. They also looked inside my bladder which was fine.
Before the lockdown out here with Covid I was having problems with it again. I had gone to the urologist again. They gave me some stronger antibiotics to get rid of it, but it never really went away. I tried some again a few weeks ago. Still nada.
Now, its gotten as bad as it was last year. I get pain by my belly button (which my doctor says is by the bladder) and the groan, and obviously when I use the bathroom. Hurts like hell to hold it which I often have to at work. I was nearly in tears the one day. And like the last time the pain is pretty constant and I feel it in my sides a lot, and it makes me nauseous. I often feel like I’m gonna puke which I have (though more of a coughing forced one, but still there).
But wait! There’s more! I’m having bowel issues too. For a while I was bleeding quite a bit (my mom said likely a hemroid.). Also what came out looked er…infected. Now I can’t really go at all. 😫 My mom said maybe we’re try some kind of medicine to make me. 🤣
So yes, Megan is a giant mess. 😅
Today I took off work since it was so bad yesterday. Have an appointment for the urologist too. Hopefully something can be done. It makes it hard to work like this. 😔
So yes, that’s what going on in the land of Megan! 😅
