So, long story as short as I can honestly make it: 10 years ago, I had a complete thyroidectomy after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I had surgery to remove some latent cancer cells this September. My shoulder/scapula started hurting shortly after, like constant pain and occasionally seizing up. It took two months, a billion doctor's appointments, physical therapy and some very hurty tests to discover that there was nerve damage from the surgery. I've been out of work and on short term disability since September (it's about to run out). If I don't go back by January 20, I will temporarily lose my job (they've already said they'll bring me back as soon as I'm cleared) and all my benefits (they're good, so I need them). If I don't go back before December 31, I'll temporarily be placed on COBRA for insurance, and since I haven't been working in 3 months, I really can't afford it.

I've been trying to go back for two months. But working for a corporation has its downfalls. They definitely want me back, but there are all these restrictions in place because my job is pretty physical. According to them, I have to be able to lift 40lbs. I can do it. I know I can. I know my body, and I've been practicing.

Tomorrow, I see my Orthopaedist to try to lift my 20lb weight restriction. I've been feeling really, really legitimately good in the last two weeks. There have only been two days where I had any pain at all, and it was minor and when the weather changed. If I get this note, saying I can do 40lbs, I can go back to work next week any gap in my benefits or having to deal with COBRA.

I love my job. I miss it. I miss my work friends. I miss interacting with people on a daily basis who aren't my roommate, her cat and my boyfriend. I miss having somewhere to go every day, and feeling like I have some sort of purpose. I'm going bat-shit crazy holed up at home.

The PPK has helped keep me sane these last couple of months. So, do whatever voodoo you do so well. Cross your fingers, kneel at the alter of your fur-babies, worship whatever fanfiction you're into, just do it. Please! I need all of your good thoughts tomorrow. Hearts!
