People piss me off sometimes. You're injured so you ask for help and they get all pissy because they have to 'go out of their way' to do whatever it is you asked them to help you with. Even after that person had just finished reassuring me it wasn't much, they're still pissed cuz I asked for help so that I could rest my leg. Grrr.

Anywho, work was just about as shitty as I figured it would be. I did manage to get help from one of my coworkers and when I thanked her she told me it was no problem. I think she was happier about helping me than having to do her own work. Which is sometimes a good thing.

My leg was so sore when I finally left work, but I couldn't drive straight home. I had to pick ma up from the rental car place. Even after that I couldn't go straight home because I needed more guaze. So I asked ma if she could drive so that I could start resting my leg. {driving wouldn't be as much of an issue if he had attacked my left leg, but since he got my right leg, I kinda need it to drive}

I got my guaze and some more bandaids {to my complete and utter disgust; you guys have no idea just how much hatred I have towards bandaids} and we headed home. When I mentioned butterfly bandages to ma, she looked around and surprisingly Walgreens doesn't have any. If they did, then they were out of stock or had moved them to a different place. Wal-Mart didn't have any either. Oh well. It's not necessary.

The red spot around the wound that's infected seems to be shrinking. Yesterday and even earlier today it was the size of a small orange {if you picture an orange in a 2D form}, but now it's about the size of a 50 cent piece. I'm going to guess that's a good thing.

In other news, there are a few movies that I want to see. Such as Step Up 2, Jumper, 10,000 BC, Charlie Bartlett and there was something else, but I don't remember. Am I going to see them? Most likely not. For two reasons: 1) no money and 2) no one to go see them with. My sister could go, but then I'd have to pay for her and her boyfriend because ... I'm not even going to get into it, I'll get pissed again.

Maybe I'll go by myself ... on a day that I just want to get away ... when I happen to have the money.

Alrighty, I've ranted/complained enough for today. I shall bored you more tomorrow.

Work should be interesting tomorrow. I still can't walk right and my job requires me to be on my feet the whole time. I'll be limping around the whole time and by the time I get home, I'll just want to collapse.

I've been putting peroxide and neosporin on the wound I think is infected. Unfortunately, I have a feeling two others are getting that way too. However, it's not as swollen, warm or red as the one that is. I just have to keep a really close eye on it.

In order for me to wear pants, I'm going to have to wrap guaze around my leg. The scratches on my foot look bad, but they're acually no worse than the minor cuts and scratches I get on my arm. I can wear socks and shoes and the worse that happens is they itch. I'll be taking extra guaze and the neosporin with me tomorrow when I go in to work.

Oh, something I've failed to mention in the last two posts ... the puncture wounds ... could probably use a few stitches each. They're not big, but they're deep. Like, when you get a scab over a cut, you run your fingers or hand over it and you can feel the elevated scab. The punctures on my leg, the scabs are actually below the level of my leg. They're like miniature holes. But I've had cuts like that too. Where they probably could have used stitches, but I never bothered with it. Besides, I don't have the money. I'm okay with a small, scarred hole in my leg. I'd rather deal with that than be in debt from having to pay a doctor thousands of dollars to stick a 2in thread through my skin.

The only thing I have to be careful of is that I tend to subconsiously play with the scabs. Kind of like when I play with my tongue ring; I don't realize I'm doing it until someone says something. With the cuts, I don't realize I'm doing it until I start to bleed again. For now, I'm okay because I'm paying extra attention to them, but when I no longer have to pay close attention, I have to make sure I don't play around.

Alright, I'm done for today. I shall write again tomorrow. Probably about how sucky my day of limping went. {See, because it's not a work-related injury, they're not going to be sympathetic. It's shitty, but hey, that's life.}

damn

My leg is swollen. The puncture wound that hurts the most is at such an angle I can't really see it, but according to my sister, it's the puncture wound that looks infected. Fuck.

I think I spent too much time walking around earlier today when I should have been resting it. Because now it's swollen more than it was earlier today.

I'm not bleeding anymore, which I would think is good. The only thing I'm concerned about right now is clotting.

If it worsens, I'm not going to be able to avoid the doctor. I can see how this would be worse than the gigantic bruise I had gotten the week after I started working, but then again, if I healed just fine from the bruise, these wounds shouldn't be too big of a deal.

Damnit. I had a whole entry planned out for today, but I can't remember what it was going to be about. Oh well.

attacked
Saturday. 2.16.08 7:20 pm
Earlier today, the cat attacked me. Teeth, claws, full force. No foul though, because he was simply doing what his instinct has him do. I just happened to be in the wrong spot at the wrong time. He was trying to protect his territory from the outdoor cat. There was an outdoor {male} cat sitting outside the back door and since Booffer was unable to get outside to attack the cat, he attacked the closest fleshy thing there was to attack; it just happened to be my leg.

There are total of 12 scratches and 6 puncture wounds spread out between the top of my right foot and lower right leg. And one scratch on the underside of my right pinky finger. I'd take pictures, but I'm too lazy right now and the light isn't good anyway. Two of the puncture wounds are kind of deep and are still bleeding, but I've been keeping pressure on them. Band-aids are out of the question so don't even suggest it.

Anywho ma and Steve will be going out of town again, but this time only overnight. They're leaving tomorrow afternoon and will be back Monday night. Will I be doing anything? Probably not. The only difference between this time than last is if I want to leave the house, I can because I'll have the car. They've rented a car for the trip.

I really don't have a whole lot to say. So I guess that's it for today.

Take the Seven Deadly Sins Quiz

It says that Greed is what will do me in, but the two that are my favorite are also higher up on the list.

I don't know why, but I've been thinking about the Seven Deadly Sins lately. Maybe it's because of the situation I'm in? Though, I doubt it because I've had a fascination with them for a while. I dunno.

Anywho, I went out today, but just to cash my check. I had a friend with me; he asked if I could bring him up to the casino so that he could cash his check. Since I know how it is when you need to get somewhere, but don't have a car, I had no qualms giving him a ride. After we left the casino he came to the bank with me so that I could cash my check and deposit money into my account, then I dropped him off at the bus stop. He had other places he needed to go, but ma needed the car so I had to go home.

I'm off work until Tuesday. I was kind of hoping to go in tomorrow for a couple hours, just to get more, much needed, money, but Cindy hasn't called me yet so I won't be going in.

I'm thinking my next paycheck will be used to go to the eye doctor. We'll have to see how much it is and how much the glasses/contacts/appointment will cost.

Alrighty, I'm done for today. I shall write again whenever.

v-day b-day
Thursday. 2.14.08 12:23 pm
Today is my youngest cousin's 17th birthday. That's about the only significance the day has to me. Even the V-day candy really has no appeal to me. Easter candy is better. But that's another holiday that I don't really care for.

Anywho work was decent. I was able to keep busy and I was okay until I had to stock the Easter candy. I got really sick of looking at jelly beans, really fast.

I'll be going out later with ma to play bingo. Something we haven't done since ... just after my birthday, actually. We get a free t-shirt for just showing up {with the invitation, that is} and we have a chance at winning a million dollars. I'd be happy with $1000. Hell, I'd be happy with $100 at this point. We'll have to see what happens.

I'll be going out tomorrow to get my check and cash it. I really should give Monica my direct deposit paperwork, but I keep forgetting. One of these days I'll remember. Hopefully.

I'm kinda tired so I think I might lay down for a little bit. I'll write again whenever.
