I've been away from Depression Heads because of my surgery.
I am in a rehabilitation center working on rehab for my foot. I have been here for nearly three weeks and the whole experience reminds me that there are different types of REALITY. If I were at home, I had a routine, my mood was up and down, but at the end of the day, I thought I knew myself.
I didn't realize how timid I was. Sad, but this experience has made me realize how a timid I can be. I tried to wait it out instead of asking for what I really needed.
As a person with anxiety, I would always put myself last. It felt my friends and family always came first. Now, that I am in not in "Reality" my timid character had to be amped up a lot. I am in rehab now and totally dependent on nursing staff for my every need- from using the toilet to getting around in my wheelchair, checking my foot for swelling, meals, and the PUSH from physical therapy to move beyond my current strength.
This is my third week at getting better. My small quilts are keeping m company and SANE.
