How Do You Move On After a Setback
I'm in week 7 out of an 8-week recovery from major surgery for an injury caused by trying to exercise; i.e., caused by trying. I'm finally recovering some from the surgery pain, but I am in that exhaustion that has no cure. I have been nauseous for three months and I am so resisting trying to finish cooking the chicken I bought. Just boiling it made me so sick that I quit the recipe; i.e., I got sick to my stomach for just trying. The week before surgery, I spray washed the outside windows--five weeks in to recovery, these fairly newly installed double paned windows fogged up; i.e., I tried and the results are so costly we'll be looking at fogged windows we'll never have the money to replace again. I can't seem to get up the guts to do anything right now. Part of me can't get out of my head that Bible quote... "a little sleep, a little slumber, and poverty will come after you like a thief in the night" (paraphrase from memory). I feel impoverished -- no money and few friends or family that can stomach seeing what I've become; except my hub, he's makes me feel rich but he's coming back in town tonight and I just don't think I fake my way out of this fear. I feel no where near recovered emotionally or physically. Any suggestions?
