You hang in there sweetie. You will get through this one day at a time and will be better because you opened up and vented to take some of the stress off your shoulders. YOU CAN, YOU WILL AND YOU NEED TO TRUST IN YOURSELF AND OTHERS FOR HELP,

I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN DO IT AND I AM MOTIVATED.

emoticon emoticon I agree totally! I have been suffering alot in the past few months. But, GOD has brought me through this time of suffering. SO If you need help ask GOD to Help you, HE IS HERE for us whenever we need him to be! I also sought COUNSELING It helped to TALK to someone who didn't JUDGE my comments & just supported them, Deb in PORTLAND OREGON.

I feel for you as I've been there too. It's not a good hole to be in but there IS light at the end of the tunnel - i've had 5 surgeries in the past year and there is light there. Yes, there are many of us that have gone through much of the same thing and we all seem handle it in one way or another. It IS worth it - you'll see. Will keep you up in my prayers and any time you want to talk you just go right ahead and talk. That's what we're here for. emoticon emoticon Judy

I've been there, too! I think almost everyone here has been there at one point, that is what makes this place great. We can understand where you are coming from and what is going on. Sometimes all it takes is a little change to get you going in the right direction.

I have been a member of sparkpeople for a very long time but haven't done much of anything on here for a very long time but I am now in need of encouragement please because I am ready to give up on everything.
I had a hip replacement a year ago today because of severe arthritis, I had put this off for almost 5 years because I wanted to find a doctor I felt comfortable with and I trusted. Actually I was afraid had the surgery and it was a breeze and I had excellent results. Exactly 5 weeks after surgery I tripped and shattered my femur. Doctor said it shattered because of severe arthritis. Here come the paramedics back to the hospital I go surgery again 14 pins in my leg most very close to my knee, skilled nursing facility for 6 weeks, (non weight baring the whole time) 3 months of therapy and felt a little better but knee arthritis was so bad I had a knee replacement a month ago. skilled nursing facility again for 2 weeks this time.because of the femur problem it made the surgery much more difficult. Just started PT again this week.
I am ready to give up I am so depressed and tired of being in pain. I know I waited to long to have my hip done and is my own fault I was in so much for so long before the hip but 3 big surgeries in less then a year have left me in so much pain the light at the end of the tunnel is getting darker.
In the middle of all this my daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer had a mastectomy and started chemo the day after my last surgery. She does not live close so I haven't even been able to travel to see her.
I know this is long but what does one do when they have been in pain and been depressed for so long that even a ladder won't get me out of this hole I am in and I don't want to share this with my family or friends because I feel like a wimp complaining when I know there are people out there in worse shape then I am..
thank you for letting me vent and post here I feel a little better just writing this.
