Still in Bed

Nothing new in my life. I keep my door open so I can watch the day get beautiful and bright and then fade into night. We set our clocks back an hour yesterday so the nights will be coming on more quickly, as if it means anything to me. I am just stuck in this limbo.  Also, that little apartment in the previous post has already been rented. I thought about renting it but I can't do it now. Can't even get out of bed, how could I move? And the most important thing of all is that Chico belongs to my landlord. I can't leave him. He is my constant companion. Although last night, for some reason he decided to crap in my other room. The room I can't even go into at the moment. Wouldn't you know it? He must have realized that I couldn't get in there to clean it up. Fortunately, my landlord stopped by to see if I needed something and I got him to clean it up as much as he could. He has his own physical problems. Life goes on all around me. I spent part of my day looking at old photos. How quickly things can change. One slip and everything is different. I am doing my best to try not to be too depressed.

  1. Hi,
    Hope you are feeling better soon. I want to encourage you to remember that you are still living the life that you love, in a beautiful place that you love, and try to remember that things usually get better, there are good times and not so good times.

    All Best Wishes,
    Linda

  4. Thank you Linda and the two other comments. No names on them. I will go outside and sit in the garden after I get on a cast. For now, it would be just awful if I were to fall again. Hopefully on Thursday I will have the cast. I appreciate all your comments. Patricia

  5. Patricia, The meds you are taking may be contributing to your depression. I only know that you're not the optimistic, adventuresome woman I know from this blog right now. Even Chico is trying to get you to move, or perhaps his "accident" was a comment.."this is a pile of crap"! So I still recommend that you rest, are patient and get well, but again the mind is a very big part of healing. Do not let the fear of falling and the depression keep you from a speedy recovery. Get out in the yard today!!!

  9. Hi John, I never made it out to the yard. I am waiting until I get the cast on. I am afraid of falling and having to start this process again. Patricia

  12. It is wise to baby that injury. You have no way to holding your broken bones in place while they are growing back together without a good solid cast, a slip would be bad. My advice would be to get a bag, put some canned goods in it and lift it with your good leg-just to tone it up for when you are able to get out of bed safely. A rope with a loop, tied to something solid works for a pulling type workout. Isometric exercise is the good for a person who is stuck in bed for an extended time. Good luck

  13. Thank you Norm. I know the doctor will probably recommend physical therapy but it is expensive here. I am going to try to find out all I can and do my own physical therapy when that time comes. Patricia
