I'm out of breath constantly, my back kills me if I sit for too long, and sitting also makes the sciatica flare up. My ankles are swelling and I'm just plain old exhausted. Yesterday I got really dizzy and almost fell out of my chair (it only lasted for about 30 seconds and then never happened again). My doctor told me she would write a note to get me out of work for the last few weeks, but I keep telling her no. I'm starting to think I'm crazy. Maybe I need to rethink her offer. It would be so nice to just be able to lay down when my back started hurting, or take a nap when I need one.
