The irony is that this is the week I told the auto insurance company that I was closing the claim related to last year's auto accident. Treatment has been going on for 7 months and the accident was just too small to justify any further treatment. So I have to close the claim while in more pain than I have ever been in.
I talked to my doctor to find out what is the most ibuprofen I can safely take. He said I can take 600mg. Maybe even push it to 800mg. Friday is my next day off from teaching. There is nothing I can do but take a ton of ibuprofen all week until I get a rest on Friday. Then after teaching a class and a party on Saturday, I will get to rest for a week. Please wish me luck hanging in there!
