Rough

This week has been rough.
I'm not usually one to throw the baby out with the bath water and label whole weeks of my life as difficult-but this one was rough.
It started out with losing a friend. I find my self opening a new email to write her, a thought to send her or something ridiculous to post on her facebook wall. And then I remember I can't and it sucks, to say the least-so there's that.

It was tricky enough coming back from vacation to a bustling schedule but then I went to the doctor and found out that I have been walking around with two broken ribs since before our wedding-over a year ago!

 (Ready for the longest parenthetical sidenote ever? Ok, so a month before our wedding I was doing this pose in yoga. Overall I was feeling like a badass when I lost my balance and flipped over myself. Immediately my ribs pinched and I thought "oh crap I hurt myself". Thinking it was a bad strain I put it on the back burner and dealt with the pain... and immediately curled up in child's pose because I was a little embarrassed. Well a couple weeks ago the pain came back and when I touched it I felt this big knot on my ribs in the same injured spot from a year ago, so naturally I went to the doctor).

And that's where we are now. I went to the doctor this past week and he felt it and was concerned so he wanted to do x-rays. So while he is going to the x-ray tech I call my insurance just to make sure it is covered-I, like many others have been burned by insurance loop holes so I thought it was prudent to check my coverage first. The idea of having to hem and haw over getting medical treatment because of cost is a little ridiculous to me-but it is so common-I know I am not the only one! Well my insurance informed me that since our deductible has not been met I would have to pay a $100% out of pocket-not ideal! So here I am sneaking out of my exam room to the front desk asking exactly what they charge for an x-ray. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do right? They looked it up and said that they charge $108 (which I find is an odd amount). I figured it was doable so I went ahead with the x-rays.Well the doctor comes in and he says "what the heck did you do to yourself?!" Apparently I have been walking around for over a year with two broken ribs and the big knot I felt was scar tissue-fab! So that's that.

I forgot to update the ole blog but I passed the first of two licensing exams-which I am psyched about (pun intended). However, the second test is quite a bit more difficult than the first. I feel like I put so much darn effort in to the first test that having to do that again is a little overwhelming. So yadda yadda-Jon hears me talking about how difficult this darn test is and he says he wants to see a sample of the test just to get an idea of what I am dealing with. So I give him a practice test and he gets a flippin 80%! Needless to say he felt really bad because he kinda just gave it a half hearted attempt and I was in tears because it came so easy to him. Poor guy, he felt sooo bad and claimed beginners luck.

Yes, I have had worse problems in my life but gosh this week just seemed a bit too much for me. Thankfully my bestie Carrie must have sensed something because she suggested we get together for coffee once I got off work today. We sat and we talked, made plans for the future, giggled like we did when we were teenagers. There is something so healing about talking with a good friend and I'm so thankful for it.

How was your week?
