This is embarrassing —I never posted yesterday. Unfortunately, I spent most of my day working on managing my pain because I had my second covid shot scheduled in the afternoon. I had read that the CDC recommended avoiding painkillers ahead of time, so I did my best with home remedies. But by the evening, I was exhausted and fell asleep on the sofa until Patrick woke me and told me to go to bed.
I have a few things I was thankful for though: I got to see some of my work colleagues while we were waiting for our shots. I was able to get my pain to subside in the evening with a large dose of Tylenol instead of the prescription meds, and hey! I’m fully vaccinated!
