Unfortunately, they stopped the medical services "on campus" about six
months ago when the county Board of Health moved to the 'burbs. I'm pretty
certain the pre-existing damage to my left S/I joint was exacerbated. I'm
filling out the paperwork now.
Thanks for asking!

Oh, jeez, that's a shame, it is. One consolation though - if you can call
that - if you need medical care, it'd be worker's comp. Is there a medical
first aid station in your building where you can get checked out?

It's been a rough start this morning:
I came to work around 7:15. My morning ritual is to open up my office, plug
the laptop into the docking station and head to the cafeteria for a cup o'
joe and a bagel. My office is on the 9th floor, cafeteria is on 16. I got
on the elevator (alone) and as soon as it started up, the lights failed an
emergency buzzer sounded and the car suddenly dropped about two feet and
bounced a bit on the end of the cable. Woudn't you know it, but my spine
got a bit squashed and I also lost my balance and fell. After a second or
two, the lights came back on and the elevator "reset" to the first floor.
Now my back and left leg are killing me. Shoulda stood in bed...:-(
