Sorry I've been quiet; I haven't felt much like posting lately.  The past week has been a bit stressful.  Work stuff, y'know.  So where to start....

My claim was approved by WSIB so that should make things a little easier going forward.  My arm has been killing me the past couple days so I've been very limited in my activities.  I'm starting to think I'll need something other than chiropractic to adjust my arm.  I'm going to my GP Wed., so I'll ask her to send me to physio (I've never been before).  I'll inquire about massage therapy, too (but I'll ask my chiro about that, since they're all in the same building).  With my arm being bad, we've switched me off normal duties at work (read: dinner service) and I've taken on lighter duties in lieu of.  It's caused a lot of unnecessary stress with my supervisor.  I'm not sure she likes me much anyways, we butt heads a lot, but she dished out a lot of attitude to me that I didn't appreciate.  On top of that, feeling rushed in a situation, I burned the back of my arm on the inside of our ovens (hard to explain).  Yet another incident report.  Someone just shoot me and put me out of my misery.  How's Wednesday for you?

I've taken a bit of a break from studying, but I've gotta get back at the books again.  I have to complete 2 assignments worth 50% each, so I've gotta work hard.

Oh!  The retirement home I volunteer at...wants to teach me to cook!  Maybe to help take over, if I understood correctly, when the Dietician goes on holidays.  I'm super thrilled about that.  Just means a bigger foot in the door ;)

Well, I should stop typing and relax my arm.  Might watch another episode or two of M*A*S*H (there's a marathon on TV - best. show. evar) and do some reading and head to bed.  Insomnia has been haunting me  lately, so I'm trying to catch up.

Edit: Whoops.. I saved this and forgot a couple things.

The ex wrote and wished me a Happy Valentines Day.  My heart sunk.  Aw, why'd he have to go do that?  Well, I left it alone for a bit, couldn't decide what to respond, or if I even wanted to.  In the end I decided to say, "Thank you"; I wanted to be polite, yet not encourage dialogue.  I don't hate the guy, y'know.  I'm just not ready to talk yet.  Despite wanting to write Happy Valentines in return.

My doctor is giving me a referral to a Respirologist.  Seems she didn't make the referral before when she was supposed to (3 months ago), but did last week and voila - I have a sleep study appointment.  This was news to me.  I know my doc is convinced I have sleep apnea, but I'm less inclined to believe.  Only because I'm in Denial (yes, I think I'm going to start capitalizing that stupid word).  I've done some reading and I have the symptoms.  But yes, lets deal with one thing at a time.  Denial first.  Knowledge and facts later.  The sleep study isn't until April - 3 days before my birthday.

Apnea? Surprised to read that.

So was I. She kept asking me every visit if I snore. I'm like, so what? But the first thing that was set up with the referral with the Respirologist, was a sleep study.

I did some reading last night; it would account for a lot of symptoms I have - fatigue during the day, poor memory. Not sure if it accounts for my difficulty breathing, though.

Judging by your symptoms, I may have it too. I have sometimes woken myself up by giving an enormous snore.

Possible! I'm not aware of waking up through the night, so I can't speak on behalf of myself, but it wouldn't hurt you to check it out maybe.
