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?

Re: How Do You Move On After a Setback

Sorry your feeling so out of it. I wish I could help but you are very fague as too what kind of surgery you had. Maybe you tummy being sick has to do with that or a new med you are taking. You do sound very depressed. have you talked to your doctor about that? I hope things turn around for you soon!
Low pain all,

Re: How Do You Move On After a Setback

baserockermom, I am assuming you had anesthesia for your surgery. Sometimes that can cause lots of problems, physically and emotionally. It takes a while for that nasty stuff to leave your body and can cause problems with reactions to your other meds. Hang in there we are all here for you.

Thanks catkaru and glojer. I see the doc on Monday so I'll ask about the anesthesia and whatnot. Hub is home now; he always brings the courage with him so that's helping too. Thanks again.
