Feeling of Helplessness....

Friday, September 23, 2011

It has been 2 weeks since I have injured my knee. Dr thinks it is a Menisci tear. I have not been able to walk or stand for more than a few minutes at a time since it happened. And I am still having problems with my hand as well. With both injuries I have not been able to do any exercise or cardio. It is very frustrating. And not being able to do my every day tasks leaves me felling helpless. With all this I am trying to stay positive. My food has not been bad which is a good thing for me since I am an emotional eater.
I will continue to try and stay positive through all of this. But sometimes it just seems so hard. My weight has always been a issue for me. And without the physical activity it is hard to maintain so trying not to gain is my biggest challenge right now.
Hopefully it will not take long to get the results back from the MRI I have to have on Monday. And I can start getting back to my usual self.

    I hear you!! I am recovering from a hip replacement and Dr. says no restricted calories for a year so my body can heal. Well, that is dandy, but like you say, trying to keep from gaining is very hard when you can't move as well as you used to.

    Like you I am trying to stay positive and am thinking just deal with one day at a time and the time will go by. I started back at the gym, and although I can't do everything I did before, I do what I can.

    Hang in there!
