On Tuesday I went to get my orthotics - I was very excited about them given that they should reduce the knee pain that I have been getting when I run. I wasn't that excited when they told me that the medical aid hadn't paid anything towards them and I would need to pay $378 !!! Even after a phone call to the medical aid, they told me that they will pay for my visit to the podiatrist, the gait analysis, the impressions for the orthotics but not the orthotics themselves - go figure !!!! I have found the paperwork of our cover and need to phone them and take it up with them. Mind you, I only get $150pa for podiatry so they are probably going to tell me I have exhausted my allocation for the year anyway - stupid bloody medical aids !!!
Thought I would go for a run on Wednesday and try new orthotics out - came home with that horrible scratchy feeling at the back of my throat so thought better of it. Woke up on Thursday feeling really cr*ppy but so busy at work decided to go in anyway. Battled through the day - got home at 4.30, put my pj's on and didn't take them off until this morning !!!! Spent yesterday in bed sleeping most of the day - all snotty and snuffly - and woke up this morning feeling even worse than I did yesterday. How does that work ?
Spent most of today lying on the couch under the blanket sleeping with baseball / footy on the TV and now have started to cough as well (thank goodness I have been doing my pelvic floor exercises like a good girl !!!!!). Also had sore ribs this moring which I thought was rather strange given I hadn't been coughing. Kidneys have been sore as well - am thinking probably because I haven't been drinking much. My taste buds are shot to buggery - nothing tastes right. A almost force feeding me because I can't be bothered to eat.
I know it is only a stupid cold and others are suffering way worse than me - I'm just annoyed that I haven't been able to shake it - really need it to be gone soon. Didn't even go to the Suns vs Swans game tonight in the hope that staying out of the chilly night air would help me get better sooner - am wondering if maybe I should just have gone anyway.
A leaves for Townsville on Tuesday morning. He is hoping to be back the following Tuesday - told him I would have to find someone else to come to NZ with me if he wasn't back in time - he has promised me he will be. Apparently his boss said that if they were delayed for any reason, they would fly him home !!!! Which is good because I don't really want to go on holiday with anyone else !!!!
Have a great Sunday and hopefully the next time I post I will be all better and have had a chance to try out my orthotics and can let you know how they went.
