I went through past bills, etc., and organised and filed them. It was a lot. Also trashed several mags, newspapers, etc. That took until about 3:pm. At around 4:pm, I began boiling peas, lentils, rice. Fried the salmon, so I could give some to dog - along w/ salmon/turkey wet food, etc. It is important to note that my dog was treated very well today, and the heat had him acting a little restless and independent at times. Meanwhile, all day, the idiot A-hole Guy is speeding his loud motorcycle all over the area, making my dog nervous.
Worked on the rest of the salmon et al dish, which is a lot. Included some of old frozen stuff. Left it going while I took dog out at around 5:30pm. Before I proceed, let tell you somethings. First, I keep my long hair up inside my cap when I go outside, because I don't need to be bothered by idiots. Next, I have a shortwave/FM/AM radio that sits behind the back of my bed. When I want to turn the channel, etc., I swing my left arm back. But ever since I got harmed by finasteride, I have some kind of arthritis in that shoulder, and so it is painful to reach backwards now. I have been working on getting that better. Feeling like I can. And, a some of you may remember, I broke my left elbow maybe ten years ago - (and probably the right one, too, but that was never x-rayed). Now, let's return to our story...
Took dog out, he did his stuff, I scooped his stuff up because it is going to rain. I sprayed his ear. He acted like he wanted to run. What we do is I pull his tail or bump his butt and he starts running in a big circle in the yard, while I manage him on the leash. (I have the shorter leash these days, because he gets into other dogs' urine, so I need to pull him out quickly), but the leash is still long.
Dog, since he was so in-a-good-mood, and distracted by the neighbourhood, including A-hole Motorcycle Guy, kept wanton to run down off the lawn, on to the sidewalk. The lawn is raised, with a slope along the sides, by a foot or two. Well, I am urging my dog to do his regular run, and he SHOULD have consented, because I did all the right things, but suddenly he darts away towards the street, while I have the leash hanging on only the tips of my fingers. I I were to pull, it would strain or break my fingers, and the dog would get away. So, I had to run with him. He went down the slope onto the sidewalk, and I am running faster after him, knowing I will not be able to keep it up, (since once I am down the slope, he will be running even faster - too fast for any control).
So, yep, I come down the slope, flying down onto the sidewalk and, as predicted, the dog gets away. IMy left arm has hit the sidewalk, with a large scrape along the back of the forearm. My glasses are on the ground, broken. My cap has come off and all my hair is out. I hear a tiny voice ask, "Are you alright?" but I don't know where it came from. Maybe people in the car watching, or the guy who went into the house next door. My dog has slowed or stopped and I yell at him, while I'm lying on the sidewalk, "COME HERE!" He is cautious, but he comes, close enough so I can grab his harness, (which I do). I growl as I reach for my glasses and put them on, as well as my cap, hair hanging out. So, we go back up the slope, up my steps, and inside.
I washed the scrape on my arm. Didn't feel like anything was broken. Then I realised I couldn't straighten my left arm. It hurts when I did certain things. But it is pretty functional for being broken. I can barely pop pills into my mouth using that arm.
The left elbow, which was once broken, seems to be involved. In fact, I am feeling my arm and the elbow is the only place that hurts to the touch. All the work on getting that arm better, now is undone. All because A-hole Guy has been terrorising households with that motorcycle, which he revs loudly. After 7 years here, the police have done nothing about it. Now, If I were to call and complain about them, and tell them I broke my arm because of it, they would blow me off. "Well, did you have security cameras?!"
I have stopped taking Glucosamine/Condroitin and MSM, because they may be triggering migraines. Well, looks like I need to take them again, for the arm.
And, I have been avoiding my doctor, and everything else, because of coronavirus. Now I might end up having to go to the emergency room. A rib is also hurting. Discovered a few cuts above me left eye.
I was planning on working on the tablet set-up now, but I thing I'll skip that for now. Need to fix main computer again before I can be back on LJ. Looked at elbow and it is swelling. I do have some prednisone here. Considering going to the ER, maybe tomorrow. Coming back with alcohol. That's what happened the last time I broke it, and it really worked quite well. The doc, back then, told me that I healed well. even though I didn't go to the ER until 14 days after the break.
I am not going to let this stop me from cleaning and event8ually getting out of this neighbourhood.
However, these injuries are going to result in some really serious CFS.
