Unhappy Broken bones

I fell on some ice a couple of weeks ago. It turned out that I fractured a bone in my ankle. I was put in a cast and told not to bear weight on it for 6 weeks.

I knew I couldn't walk on crutches for very long so I borrowed a walker, then ordered a scooter. The thing weighs 29 lbs so its a lot to lift in and out of the car. I have rarely been able to do it without putting some weight on the broken leg.

Then I stumbled in the hallway trying to get down the stairs. I ran my hand into the wall and bent my finger back all the way, breaking it in 3 places on Friday.

I live alone and have nobody to help me. Well, there are a couple of people I could ask, but I hate to ask. I am ordering groceries to be delivered and have put my dog in a kennel. I can't ask people to do my dishes or my laundry or help me wash my hair. But those are things that need to be done and its really a struggle.

And there's been a fair amount of pain. The ankle is getting better but I had surgery on my hand today and the anesthesia has worn off. It hurts like hell.

I feel like such a wreck having all these injuries. It makes me feel vulnerable and depressed.

Just letting it out,

Hey there.
You have really hurt yourself there. I would be feeling the same.
It's great you vented, it helps to vent.
Some one once told me this...
If I offered you a gift, and you said no thanks... I would be hurt.
When I offer my assistance.. And you say no.. I am hurt.

It's my gift to you and you say no...

When someone offers you to help.. Say yes and give them the gift of allowing them to help you..
They get the gift of giving, which allows people to feel happy and and needed, useful and great.

Hope you feel better soon.

:)
