My double knee replacement is not until March 15th. I was told due to the way my knees are if I fall I will most probably break at least 1 and maybe both hips. So I am VERY limited in getting out and about any more
Even with my back injury I was able to work a few hours a week ( only because the boss is me lol ) and I went somewhere every day. Some days it was just to the 1.00 store lol just to get out for a bit.
Now due to the snow and ice here in Pa. I can't even take my dog outside to go potty.
Someone takes me to the grocery store once a week and that is pretty much it.
I am finding myself going to bed at 10PM or earlier and watching TV or reading then sleeping in until noon :jawdrop:
Even with my back injury I never was idle. I watched maybe 2 hrs of TV a week. I kept myself really busy.
Then the few hrs I am up I fiddle around online or do some easy chores around here.
I don't cook meals hardly ever or do most of the normal things I did before I was "grounded".
I know I am headed for depression soon.
There are SO many things/projects/crafts I could be doing, but I can't seem to find the Mojo to get going and doing them. I have a lot of things that I always said I would do if I had the off time. Now I just sit and stare at nothing.
I am rather embarrassed to admit all this - But I just can't seem to pull it together myself
Any ideas, tips on how to get out of this slump are greatly appreciated.
L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
