I work a morning jog at the barn where my horse is boarded. I feed the horses, fill their water, muck up to 16 stalls, and sweep the entire barn. Normally I work 6 days a week, but the barn manager and owner got in to a fight and the barn manager left. So now I only have days off when the owner is available to do the chores I do.
I worked 14 days straight. On day 12 I pulled my back out. I still had to work two more days, with a back injury. Friday evening I was laying on the couch and went to get up to make dinner. I ended up having muscle spasms and screaming so loud I woke my friend up in the other room. The decision was made to go the the ER.
It took over two hours just to be seen. They determined that the problem is just muscular and not a spine compression or anything. I have a muscle relaxer and TWO pain killers that I’m on now.
A few people have asked if there’s any way they can help. Because of the snafu with Adrastus’ web host last week (they took out money that wasn’t due until the 18th), we haven’t been able to pay our medical insurance premium. I don’t want anyone to donate, but if you could go look at lizstaley.etsy.comand buy something for you or a friend, it would help me a lot. I even have a coupon active right now, so if you use ADRASTUS10 in the coupon field at checkout you’ll receive 10% off purchases of $5 or more.
(Oh I also have a Gumroad store with some Clip Studio Paint resources too.gumroad.com/adrastuscomic )
