My Back!

Water angel
I strained the lower part of my right latissimus dorsi muscle...
at fuckin' work. Great, and I still have to go to work tomorrow. Woot, woot. *rolls eyes*

I shouldn't have tried to lift that box from that angle, and the box was pretty high up. I'm surprised my shoulder isn't hurting. Ouch. I've had worse, I'll be okay.

eeek! let them know you can't lift things. do you have workers' compensation in the states? i hope it's just minor and gets better soon. take care of yourself xo

Yeah, it was minor; My back feels a lot better today. I'm glad I'm a fast healer. My job kind of stinks because they wouldn't listen to me if I told them that I couldn't lift those heavy boxes... I just need a new (and better) job.

that sucks :-( in australia we have a law that says if you say something is too heavy for you, then you don't have to lift it. and there are all these other laws about if something is over a certain amount of weight, you HAVE to have assistance to lift it. we're having our own problems with unions and such here at the moment,... but the US doesn't seem very big on workers' rights.

We're supposed to, but people work around the rules. At my job we're supposed to have someone else assist you when things are too heavy, but a lot of people are so damn lazy..."Oh, you can do it by yourself" or "Get someone else to help you" or even "that's your job."

that SUCKS. doesn't your management support you??

They're the ones that tell me, "That's your job." My team leader helps me sometimes though.

Poor thing. Shit hon, we need to get you out of there.

Did you get on the health insurance yet. Hope so.

I'm supposed to start having health insurance in about a week and a half...
That won't happen though because I kind of screwed up, I guess. I'll have to call someone and see if I could still get my benefits by that time.
