My school year so far

is not starting off so hot. I worked the first day but could barely walk. The doctor put me out the remainder of the first week and said it was sciatica. I behaved myself the entire time....... even skipped the parade Saturday and church Sunday but 15 minutes into the school day today I knew I had to get back to the doctor. Because of Round Up it was 2:15 today or not for another week so I had to take the afternoon off. Way to make a good impression on my new boss right? Not to mention I felt like a sub in my own classroom today.

Now for the new diagnosis. Are you ready for this? I apparently have a rather large tear in my hamstring. He apologised profusely for missing it last week but honestly I don't think it was his fault. My back was so locked up he didn't go any farther than examining and trying to manipulate that.

I have a pressure wrap on it and he says come back if it's not better in 2 weeks. The good news is he also said if I have it wrapped I am not doing any more damage by working on it so I am going to go to work tomorrow.

And trying to look on the bright side this is better than the initial diagnosis of sciatica because he said that would be a reoccurring problem once it happens to you and this should not be any further problem once it is healed.
