Bored and depressed

Sunday, July 21, 2013

I am feeling kind of depressed right now...after my foot surgery I cant do most of the things I enjoy doing...I really want to go out and do some things out doors, but with my knee scooter it limits what I can do...I cant go very far on the scooter, I tried to go for a walk through my favorite park when I had the surgery on my other foot, and that messed up my breaks...not to mention how tired my leg got...all I can really do right now, is to go out to eat, or go to movies...I go to hero house during the week, but on the weekends I spend most of my time at home with my foot up...I am so bored...and it is depressing me...I try so hard to keep a positive attitude, but it is so hard...
I have also been trying to do some things on my own, it helps me feel more in control...I am tired of people asking if they can do things for me, I just want to do as much as possible on my own...at home I feel like such a burden to my parents, every time I ask for something they seem to get annoyed...
I am just really tired of not being able to do what I want and enjoy...I get so tired trying to get around and it wears me out...sigh...in fact I am exausted right now, I think I will just go take a nap...
I hope all are doing well...big warm angel hugs to all.

    Hi Monika,
    I am sorry that you are unable to do the things that you would like to do. Let's hope and pray that soon your foot will be totally well, and you will be able to get out and do the things that you enjoy. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I have a great deal of empathy for your situation. I'm think that you might be able to do some upper body exercises such as those listed under the "exercise" tab. Also, the SP Chair Exercise Team has some great exercise suggestions for SP members who a non-weight-bearing. In addition, this would be a great time to teach yourself to knit or crochet (instructional videos on You Tube).

    I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.Best wishes.---Lynne

    When I had knee surgery, I went through the same thing as you. What helped me was knowing that the situation was not forever. Yours will end end too and you will be back to all your activities. emoticon
