Plans: attend a fellowship group. then home maybe try back to bed which i doubt sleep will come. Ins still haven't called about the meds that I need. I need to call pdoc on tues when she is in the office. Ugh I hate this feeling.
Sleep: I had a hard time getting to sleep, I seem to be paralyzed by anxiety. I don't want to take Seroquel because it causes me to eat everything in sight.
Mood: Anxious. I have to get up and out of the house for my young niece's birthday party, but I rather stay curled up on the couch.
Plans: I called my relatives that had back surgery . One was when she was 32 and one when he was 29 and he had a second 4 months ago. I got a lot of input, but the description of my surgery surpasses what they had. Of course a surgeon gives you the worst case scenario, but I am going for a second opinion. I don't want to wait too long, but I want to know what I am getting into.
Mommaangel- Your back damage is far worse than mine is. I walked stooped over, but as long as I pace myself, I can make it through WalMart. Sleep comfortably is a whole different game. It is listening to stories like yours that humbles me.
Hugs to all,
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
