Crying all the time

I have been crying all the time, just to thing that I am living for the surgery or thinking I wont be able to do anything I like for one year. My life is good and I don't have reason to complain, But I am at the point should I go see the doctor to take pill or just let myself cry when ever it come. Because for the rest I do not have problem. I have a nice life even whith pain, I have children and a wonderful husband that learned to live with my limits. I am still doing almost everything I like. So do I try to get through without and kik myself? Thank

    Anyone facing major surgery and recovery can feel overwhelmed, unsure and even depressed. There is nothing wrong with seeking support to get you through this time. It can only benefit you in the long run and give you support.
    It may take up to a year for fusion to occur but it may also be less than that.....the only way to know, is to go through it.....
