I woke up today to pain. Literally. Barely moments after I opened my eyes, my right leg experienced a really painful cramp, making it so that my toes faced outwards for several long moments. After pushing it against the head of my bed (and the wall behind it) I was finally able to get the muscles to relax somewhat, though there was still a part of it that felt like a tight and hard knot. That spot felt painful to the touch, and made it hard to walk properly.
The aftermath of the cramp lingered all through my time at work today, which made it awkward going to and from the toilet to say the least. Still since I was sitting down through most of the shift, it wasn’t that much of a bother. Really I had better things to worry about in the office like, oh, the fact that my supervisor was looking for a written explanation from me on why I broke protocol the other day. Like clockwork, really.
It started raining by the time I got out of the office, but it really started to come down by the time I was close to home. I had no choice but to wait out the downpour at a close-by mall, where I took advantage of the fact to have a massage, and give proper attention to the still-sensitive knot of muscle on my leg. Let me tell you, it felt good, though I think maybe a night’s worth of sleep will help push the recovery along.
When the massage session was done, I started on my way again home. On the plus side, it was barely raining anymore after I got out of the mall. On the downside, apparently many of the streets on the way to our house were flooded from to ankle-depth and higher. Mmph. After a massage, there was no way I was going to wade through dirty flood water.
I had to call home, and ask my cousin to bring a pair of rubber boots, which she did so in short order. Thanks to her, I was finally able to get home, though I felt that it wasn’t a complete success, as the inside of the boots was wet too. Ah well…
