: Having a back injury is new to me and I have a lot of mixed emotions. Not only have I not worked for almost 4 months...While I am home I can't even keep up with the house work, make love to my husband or do the things that I should be doing with the kids....For some reason I am really struggling w/ feelings of guilt...I think its' becawue the kids and my husband don't understand how much pain I am in...How doped up I get off of pain pills and how limited and depressed I feel...Everyone on this board seems great and strong...a litle advice or words of encourgment would be great...How can I stay motivated and not have guilt for being hurt??? Thanks everyone....
I feel guilty too about the same things. I have 2 boys 12,9. Im also married.I feel guilty abouy house work & not being able to work right now. And your right nobody understands until it happens to them. My husband tells me now that I complain too much. Its just not true. I dont want sympathy I just want him to know (sometimes)that Im hurting I cant do much today. It makes me feel worthless sometimes. Now Im addicted to pain medicine. Ive had neck sugerey & back surgery recently. I go thru withdraws it seems every week now cuz my dr. under medicates me. Ive even done some illegal stuff. I need prayers. Ill say one for you also. Thank you i feel better already!
