I hate this. The pollen count was off the scale today, as was the humidity. So guess what happens? i go into a minor asthma attack at work. I had two near fainting spells before 1pm, when Teri was due in. We tried to get Julie in to spot the rest of my shift today, but she wasn't available.
Of course, as i'm walking out the door. Doug asks if i'm leaving and is having a hissy fit. I attempt to wheeze at him to tell him that everything is pretty much done in pharmacy aside from little things to be looked over if they get time. Going on about 'tommorrow is an important day for us!' As if all my work over friday and saturday meant nothing to his dumb ass. Of course, he also demands a Dr's note in return when i come back, as if i could fake my wheezing! Really, really an ass. Because i had been intending to nurse the attack as best i could with my emergency inhaler. It wasn't EVEN close to as severe an attack i've had before. By the time i pulled into Urgent Care, my lung capacity was already returning! I just wasn't capable of working the rest of the day because of that slow return. Not without passing out on the pace we keep on mondays. Of course, this is Doug we're talking about. Passive Agressive with no sense of empathy for those that do have actual problems. Not like i wanted to leave the shift, but the ringing in my ears kind of demanded it! We were fairly well set for yearly inventory, he didn't need to worry himself sick over it. Eeesh.
Now i hurt on my left side, where the endo was and some likely still exists there that isn't visible. I'm tired but better. The nebulizer treatment DID help my throat clear as that was still constricted from teh attack when i went in. I could breathe, but not fully. Eating, sleeping and taking the prednisone helped the rest along.
I was more mad at Doug being such an ass about the Dr's note. It's not like i PLAN these attacks, they just happen. And because it happened on a monday, i can't get into my Primary physicians office. (sat on hold for 10 minutes), hence the trip to urgent care. Because he wants a Dr's note because Yearly inventory is tommorrow! For no other reason than that.
This just pisses me off, after all the fun of the last few weeks. I loved returning to work last week. It's good to be back. AND i had my debut in Second Life as a streaming DJ.
I have two official gigs coming up this month in Caledon, the home of my avatar there. One on the 22, which will be the South Pacific party. The second is on the 30th, which is to provide music for a fellow citizen's auction. Both events are for the Relay for Life Charity Drive. Which we're only halfway through at this point. I'm not in overload of it because of work, thankfully. Which helps, because everyone else is in our group of 4 crazy, music loving DJs at Radio Riel.
I figure if i can't get the job right away as an actual music recording tech. I can provide a service i don't mind doing, that gets me expenses for SL. Also lets me share my love of music with the rest of the users there. I've DJ'd before, so it's not like i'm unexperienced. Just need to get used to the form of Winamp, instead of actual Cd players.(1997-2000, before mp3s became widespread) The equipment is different, but the work is the same. and i had a blast DJing in my community college in port huron. The only reason i left is becuase the politicking among the heads of the program pissed me off. Much less the format changes that killed and made us loose our old alternative rock listening base. This is a return to radio in it's original form. So i'm all for it.
I'll start putting up bits of my playlist now and then. But for now, i'm just glad to have this to offset my normal job. Just for the sheer love of it, and the rest of my co-workers in the staff of Radio Riel are the same. Different styles, but the love of music is our common thread.
