Beat Street

I just got home from my first ten hour shift at work, and God, I am beat. Both of my legs are considerably swollen, so not only am I tired but I am also puffy.

I talked to the head baker and he was very understanding about my condition. He said that it would be totally fine for me to sit down while I do some of the light prep work, which I think will make a huuuuge difference in and of itself. That, combined with a new compression garment, should help a lot with the increased swelling.

Buhhhhh, so that’s what’s new with me. I think I’m going to head to bed now; I’ve got another ten hour shift tomorrow, and again the night after that. Oh, boy! I gotta work these hard hours to make money, though, so it’s worth it. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.. haha.

I hope you all are doing well and staying healthy!

  1. Take care of yourself. Are you getting custom or over the counter garments? Can I send you some small blocks to elevate your bed when puffy is bad? Put them under the bed legs atthe foot of course. I’ll be thinking of you.
