Hi guys ,
I'm almost six weeks out of surgery ant/post fusion .
But even though I'm making progress I'm still finding it hard to do the most basic of things like get to the shops or cook . I haven't cooked properly for my boys since the operation . Yesterday I took my youngest to the shops with me to get some food but had such bad pain on the walk there I had to come home and they had to have take away again .
My fiancé works very hard and is hardly ever around .
I'm just feeling so down and isolated .
I have no friends nearby as I moved here only a couple of years back and just haven't really met too many people . My family live a couple of hours away but nobody has visited . I get an occasional text and that's it . I mean I'm kind of angry that one of my three sisters can't be bothered but I understand everyone has lived going on . I just feel so isolated and lonely and so fed up of having to lie down for most of the day as sitting still really hurts . I don't want to take anti depressants as I've been through that merry go round before and don't fancy the withdrawal ! Well we all know it's hard with all our fears of what out limitations may be , I think that's the hardest part and of course just the long road to recovery and wanting to be at the end of it not near the beginning .
