I strayed- should have stayed.

Sunday, May 02, 2010

I'm back and starting again with sparkpeople. I fractured my leg on 2/22 an have been futon bound for the most part since then- I want to get back to where I was- it's just slow in coming and I have not been patient.
Because I had such problems getting around my home became filthy. I asked people not to come by because I have been so ashamed. Today is the first day that I have been able to stumble around and get my floors mopped and some laundry done. That has made me feel a little better.
I had a wedding to go to recently. I had to go to the store to buy clothing because nothing fit. I have once again entered the "plus size" arena. Even with this and the fact that NOTHING I own fits except the clothes that were once the baggiest- I put off the weigh in. That has always been my call back to reality. Well- I have been smacked back in to the real world. I was not as horrified as I thought I would be after weighing in. It could be worse.
I keep telling myself that my situation is not permanent- I am fortunate.
For today, I will track my food, track my water, drink no soda, eat no goodies, and remember to be thankful. emoticon

    I noticed that your latest blog was quite a while ago. Being the nosey person that I am, I read your last two blogs and now I know the reason why. I am so sorry about your accident. How many steps did you fall down? I fell down 5 brick front porch steps a little over a year ago and was miserable. I did not break anything. I stopped sliding down the steps when my head hit the concrete sidewalk. I was black and blue from just under the eyes to somewhere in my hair. I scraped the skin off my arms too. My husband helped me up and was ready to take me to the ER. Being the retired nurse that I was and with much stupidity, I told him no. I got out all the supplies and cleaned the areas, put antibiotic ointment on my arms. Stuck on about 6 non-stick sterile pads and wrapped both arms with gauze. I did agree to go to the doctor if I did not like the way it was looking. Never did go. My arms healed quite nicely and my 1/2 of a black face healed. I can only imagine the pain you felt. Glad to have you back. Please, take it slowly the next time. I do hope there is never another next time.

    Be careful not to overdo and put more stress on your leg.
