I broke my wrist and injured my rotary cuff and am drugged up on 3 different kinds of meds. My mom just called to tell me my step dad may not make it through the night ( terminal cancer) and I dont want to fly home. I cant stand my sisters. I will be forced to sleep on a couch since I cant afford a hotel room ( and cant drive anywhere) and that just sounds painful right now because my sister always takes the bed in my mom's house and wont share. I am very irritated because mom wants me to come on home but I cant drive, and will have to depend on my sister to take me everywhere and it sounds like torture, since they will accuse me of faking it despite the cast and sling. I know this sounds extremely selfish but this thing hurts like hell and Vicodin always makes me cranky ( I could never get addicted because I hate how I feel) but Ibuprofen doesn't stop the pain at all. I am very upset about my stepdad but going there sounds like Hell right now. I am so frustrated,sad and angry. I am bawling right now because well this just sucks. I am of course going, I just was venting
Also, has anyone injured their rotary cuff? is it supposed to hurt like this? My wrist doesnt hurt hardly at all anymore but the shoulder has been hurting so bad I get nauseaous for a week now. just went back to the DR today and they are going to start PT next week.
I realize these problems seem really petty and please dont think I am not horribly upset about my stepfather. I am heartbroken, I knew this was going to happen soon, the injury is just making everything so hard and frustrating.
