Chest Pains

Work was absolutely horrible today. I was swamped before I even walked in and it stayed like that until I left.

I spent my day doing two different things. The first was trying to figure out why a report I printed on Monday was now showing different figures today when nothing had been changed. The second was working on my monthly billing and trying to figure out why my percentage breakdowns on my billing report was not calculated correct. Now I don't know if any of you work with numbers but when I am trying to figure out problems like these it's very hard for me to get up and walk away from my desk for anything. Once I get going on a solution (or what I think will be a solution) I just can't stop for fear I will forget where I was going.

While I was working on my first issue this morning I started to notice this weird stabbing like pain in my right boob. The pain was not near any of the edges of my bra so I knew it couldn't be the wire. Since I was in the middle of problem solving I just keep tugging on my bra straps to move my bra around thinking that maybe it was just laying weird. This went on for about 3 hours before I got a chance to get up and take a break. On my break I went to the bathroom to try and figure out what was causing this awful pain of mine. When I pulled my shirt out and looked down I realized that the back to my earring was inside my bra and my bra was pushing it into my skin. I didn't even know the back to my earring had fallen off and I really couldn't tell that there was actually something inside of my bra. I was also shocked that something so little could cause so much pain. I guess next time I will have to force myself to get up and check out my pains a little sooner.

UGH! My previous 2 jobs were nothing but numbers & I know that when your spreadsheet/formulas are not working - it can be a very rough day!!!

Hope all gets better! Glad your earring fell out - at least, you got a break!!!

Oh my gosh, that is so surprising! What a crazy thing to happen. I do understand not getting up to check but i'm glad you figured it out eventually. Glad 'Chest Pains' ended up not being so serious.

That's kinda funny, Jess! But glad it didn't mean you were having a heart attack or something. :) - tif

You poor thing! At least it turned out to be the earring, the topic made me a little nervous!
I love you and I really, really hope that you start to feel better about work very soon.
If not, can you take a mental vaca?
I could be your "psychiatrist"!
hee hee.
Hope you are breathing in and out tonight.
