Last week of disability 03-14-2005 - 11:27 AM
Here I am trying to relax and enjoy my last week off. In some ways I am really looking forward to going back to work. I miss some of my co workers and some of my clients.(mentally ill patients)I need to get back into the normal flow again. I have been off so much these last 10 months. I have almost forgotten what normalcy feels like. I will only be working for 2 weeks, then be off for my tvt surgery(4/4). I am hoping I won't be off very long with that one. I know it is a shorter recovery period and my job does offer light duty. I am looking forward to getting this last procedure done(hopefully).I was thinking about putting it off, but decided to go ahead with it. It seems like everytime I bend now I leak more than before. I have a physical type of job and don't want to put up with it getting worst as time goes on. I want to be able to feel healthy and enjoy the summer.
MY finances are already shot, so they can't get any worst. We already lost my DH's pickup truck. We are going to go talk to a lawyer today. I am hopeful things will work out. I do know materialistic things can be replaced, but my health can't. I didn't choose to become so ill this last year. It was nothing we could have predicted or prevented. I am just so grateful to be alive and feeling sooooo much better than I did a year ago.
Life goes on with or without the materialistic things. I chose to be healthy and will never ignore my body telling me that something isn't right. I worked for many years being very anemic. All I could think of was paying the bills and taking care of my family. All the while my body came close to saying goodbye!

Wishing you well as you go back to work for those couple of weeks. May this upcoming surgery be your last for a very long time (forever?).

May you get back on your feet after this surgery. It has been a hard thing for you and the financial burdens make it worse. May this be a time of starting fresh for you and everything gets better.

Hi Peggy,
I'm glad to hear you're feeling better about things. Life can get very overwhelming at times, I've been feeling a little down lately as well.

I wish you well with your return to work, and with your next surgery. I think being back to work does help us to feel more normal, it's good to be back in the real world again. I also hope your recovery goes smoothly after your next surgery. Take care,

Hugs, Anne

It sounds like you are doing well in staying positive. And that your coworkers are understanding. I am thinking of you and really hoping that you have no problems back at work

Again your outlook for facing the summer and the rest of the year with all this behind you is wonderful - I too want my last op to go well, I find out on thurs exactly what is up.

Keep positive - that truely is the key - and health is number one - without health, one cannot fully enjoy the material things - and those can always be had - I do hope you get answers from the lawyer - have you thought of chapter 7? you can keep some debts etc but have a more organised way to pay it back - and can write off the medical etc.

Good luck to you!
