Day 32 on bedrest... never ending cycle

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Day 32 on bedrest and it is the never ending cycle of my life now it seems.

I have managed to go from day one on bedrest with not being able to take one step to day
32 and taking a painful 40 steps. I am finding that I am looking for back treatments online that I can try out in an effort to get mobility back into my life.

How much you miss your freedom when someone or something takes it away.

    Keep thinking on how far you've come. You are putting one foot in front of the other, each day, even though it's painful. You are doing great to keep on moving. 40 painful steps will become 41, 42, etc. I know it must be frustrating, and I understand, to some degree, about your freedom being taken away. Over a year ago after ankle surgery, I couldn't move much for 3 weeks, but I could use a walker and could make it to the restroom and back to the chair and that was it until that big, heavy soft cast was removed. I never felt so helpless, and didn't have strength to haul myself around much more than that. I felt helpless, alone, depressed, and confined. It was the most helpless I ever felt, and I never want to experience it again.

I pray you'll find treatment and healing quickly. Focus on the positives, and keep on blogging!

    You'll do it, never give up hope...I lost 15 people last year, only one of them passing from natural causes, and 2 so far this year, including my aunt who passed away on the same day my Dad did last year, and the same day as my uncle, a few years ago.

We've wiped 2/10 off the calendar, so that won't happen next year, but don't think about how hard it is...think about how great you'll feel once you've healed..always look forward, never back and you'll do it. Afterall, you do have the support of everyone here and THAT's a LOT!

I'll put you in my prayers. :)
