So I lightly pulled my back muscle yesterday and I couldn't go to work today. It was very painful and I couldn't move too much. It was from all the shoveling and lifting I did at my job last week during the snowstorm and when I lifted something up heavy at home yesterday my back completely pulled. Today it is much better and I barely feel any pain now so I can go back to work tomorrow. I went to my fiances acupuncture office and received treatment today which also helped. I'm surprised though, how fast my back healed.. but then again I am only 23 so maybe I recover faster than older people.
Anyways, I'm worried that my boss thinks that getting injured as a result of strenuous work from my job means that I am not able to perform my required job duties and therefore I am not fit for this job. This is where I worry he will fire me because I'm useless. Not to mention my age too, he probably would understand if its someone older who got back injury but a guy in their early 20s getting back pain isn't something you hear so often.... I guess I am weak... sigh I just got engaged we are starting to plan on our wedding and apartment rents but if I get fired everything will be over and without money it can even lead to the demise of our relationship... Fml
Please tell me, am I overthinking or is this something I really should be worrying about?
