Rough 7 Weeks ⇒

April 13th, 2018 by Erin with tags Work, home & Health

The last 7 weeks have been a bit trying:

  • had to stop doing Crossfit, because of pirifomis syndrome
  • got laid off from EDP, ostensibly for "business reasons"
  • nearly cut my fingers off with a table saw

My piriformis had been bothering me for a few months and I had foolishly done nothing about about, so cutting my fingers was a bit of a blessing in disguise. My fingers forced me to actually take a break and properly rehab all my broken bits (achilles, shoulder, glute). It's nearly better,...

Here's what I bring to my next job so if you hear of something cool, let me know.
