Stress and Surgery

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Well, this surgery was supposed to help my back pain. Only I could get a damn infection 3 weeks into recovery. Of course Dr. blew me off for 5 days. Finally got my GPs office to throw a fit at surgeon and got in and got antibiotics. Now I am on all my regular meds, (oh byt my Celexa was doubled), plus antibiotics (oh yeah...this one causes joint pain, YAY), and now muscle relaxants. So much for my stress level lowering. I am about to loose my mind! i just want this all over so I can move on with my life and my working out.

    I know what you mean! My surgery was only supposed to be outpatient with a 2 week recovery time. It ended up being inpatient as there were complications and 5 weeks recovery. I ended up on more pain meds for about a week as I pulled something in my side during recovery. I have no idea what I did to myself. I am almost 2 months out from surgery and feeling good, but a little tired.

I hope the rest of your recovery goes better!!

I am scheduled for my shot today and am soooo happy. My back is on schedule....exactly 3 months between shots. I hope he keeps me on this schedule so I can keep moving!! If I have to go longer between them it won't be pretty! Anyway,......I will be out of action the rest of the day cuz afterwards I have to lay still for awhile. I will be back in action tomorrow as much as I can. Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

I'm Back

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Well sort of! I wanted to thank all of you that left me encouraging messages during my mini breakdown! Even though I did not respond back right away, it really did help me!! I am feeling much better and am proud to say I didn't gain any weight. I didn't loose, but no gain. That said a lot to myself and made me happy that I can do this. I just had too many things going on at the same time and couldn't handle it all at once. I am back in the swing of things, but the girls are home this week on break and we are doing spring cleaning, 100 Dr. appts., and everything else that needs to be done. SOOOOO I will be checking in and posting a little, but probably won't be logging everything and tracking all my exercise but will be doing it!! I PROMISE!! I miss you all and thanks again for everything. I couldn't do this without you!

Having a BAD BAD Day

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Must be getting close to my 'time of the month' because I am super sensitive today! I am upset about everything, crying and jus all around having a crappy day. I know I should exercise and make things better, but I just can't. Panic attack earlier and just not getting up unless I have to. I know it will pass. it always does. Just want it to hurry!

    Been there, done that. I hope it passes quickly for you when that happens. It usually took many long breaths for me and a lot of praying and meditating.

    Sometimes it's ok to give yourself permission to have a crying jag. Just go on and cry. Doesn't even matter whether you know what you're crying about or not. Just let it out. Take a page from a toddler's playbook: cry yourself to sleep. Tears can be so cleansing--and you end up feeling refreshed afterwards.

    Sowwy. Feel better soon! HUGS.

After an entire icky week, I feel much better, because I gave my MIND time to catch up to what my body wanted it to do. This too shall pass.

    Hugs! Take a deep breath, it is alright to literally take 4-square cleansing breaths. Once you have that supply of oxygen, you should be ready to go.

    *Hugs* I hope you feel better soon! Maybe make a plan to wake up and exercise tomorrow to get some of those good endorphins going. Plus, maybe the planning will make you feel better! I don't like that TOM either, it wreaks havoc with the hormonal stuff, but the good news is that it will be over! Hang in there, let me know if you need anything!

    I understand. Some months are like that for me. My approach is a little different this time around. Even though I may have a bad day I still try to think of the positives. I am sure you can come up with a few. Try posting them. You just may surprise yourself. I have one for you, You posted here today! That is a good positive. Good luck and hang in there!
