Stresses of the Week

*yawn* Monday morning.

This is going to be a difficult week for me, I expect.

I'm having another endoscopy tomorrow morning (Tuesday), and I'm not looking forward to it. This will be my second endoscopy in the last three months, and in some ways, I feel that I've not really recovered from the first one. I've had some chest pain on and off the last three months since the previous one, but the doctor told me that this is likely due to the fact that the specialist took a lot of biopsies from my esophagus, and they do take time to heal. Which makes me wonder why I'm having another one, of course. *sigh*

Then there's the matter of my hangnail and the infection in the toe. Despite the treatment with the Fuscidin antibiotic cream and some foot soakings in salt water, I don't see any improvement to the toe and quite the contrary, it looks somewhat worse. I'll have to keep an eye on this during the course of the week, and see what happens.

In any event, I'm taking today, Tuesday, and Wednesday off from work (my boss was agreeable to this), and am quite stressed out about the endoscopy tomorrow as well as what happened yesterday during character generation with the Sunday group of their Parsec RPG rpg characters (see the blog from yesterday for more on this).

Going to try and relax today, if possible.
