These were a pre-surgery get well gift from one of my co-workers, given to me (as part of a bag of get well goodies) on my last day of work before going out for surgery. I put them on today to help lift my spirits.
After a pretty good first day and a half home, things backslid a bit. My mouth started hurting non stop, I got really tired, felt generally crappy, and had an almost-accident that scared me a bit and had me on edge for several hours.
I donned my new Spider-socks this morning, after a long, hot shower, in the hopes of starting the day off on the right foot, in the right sock.
So far, so good.
