Hello my name is melinda I am new with sparks been here for about a month and have really enjoyed the site and people I have talked to. I was going threw the teams and came across this one and it really hit me. Due to alot of health issues, 18 surgery, arthitis and others I have kind of dissappeared. I have began to feel like I let my health issues and pain become who I am and for a long time now I have lost all my self and power. I have a wonderful hubby that has been there threw everything, he is wonderful and has stepped in and taken care of everything. I mean like everything. I cant clean my house because of horrible pain and muscle spasms. So he cleans, does laurdry cooking grocery shopping. And has taken care of me threw all my surgerys and has become a very good nurse LOL But I fel like I have lost who i use to be. I live in a smae town and the only people I know I am related to and some I wish I wasnt. I dont go any where other than doc appt that my hubby drives me to. I use to be very independant and worked full time. I use to go places and do things but for a long time i have kind of locked my self away in my room. My room is my haven. I feel comfortable in there. I have everything I need expect myself 2 and 1/2 months ago I decided I wanted things to change. I have been going to the track and walking every day. For 30 to a hour a day I have that time at the track to my self and I enjoy it. I have been working really hard to find who I am the person I use to know. Anyone get this? Look forward to hearing from other people
