what a difference

After waking up this morning with back spasms, I could barely get out of the shower and by the time I hobbled my way to the car to meet The Green-Eyed Boy at the 11am meeting, I could barely walk. So The Green-Eyed Boy and I went out to lunch with a bunch of folks after the meeting, but then he took me to Swedish Covenant, where I learned I am NOT dying of a rare blood disorder or suffering from a kidney infection but, instead, have seriously pulled a back muscle. God knows how THAT happened. Between The Green-Eyed Boy’s hernia and my back pain, we were a real pair this afternoon.

But anyhow — what’s awesome is that, no questions asked, he drove me to the hospital and stayed there the entire time without grumbling or any resentment on his part, and then he stayed at my place until he was sure I was okay and had eaten and didn’t need any more of his help.

None of this changes the fact that I’m going to be working on my exams like crazy over the next couple of days, I’ve got work up the wazoo, and classes start on Wednesday… but it sure is nice to be with someone who doesn’t make me feel as though I’m a burden for expecting help when I genuinely need it.
