Transitioning back to work
Monday past was my first day back-a long, painful, tiring one, I left immediately at the end of the day, to reurn to my recliner, with Advil and ice packs and sleep for several hours. I anticipated this and luckily, each day has been a bit better.
While recovering, we've had some anticipated inreases in bills:
-more electric due to dryer use
-possible increase in grocery bills as things like bread are purchased vs making at home
I am now in PT and have run out of plan benefit so while I will continue to get the in plan discounted rate, this is a pricey expense tat is not a want but rather a need to ensure the best outcome. Emergency funds will be used.
I require significant help with ADL's, and as a highly independant person, this is difficult. I continue to folloe MD's orders, and am not using my left arm. I am classified as on sedentary duty at work.
