Another Wonderful Holiday!

My surgeries started right before Thanksgiving, then another right before Christmas, the next right before Valentine's Day. Now it is Memorial Day & I am still sick. Another surgery & right before my birthday & I am sure I will still be sick for Independence Day! I am not a strong person. I am tired, sore & feeling blue. The more my dh does for me the worse I feel. Today I showed him pictures of stomas on the web & he says Oh that's not so bad. Yesterday plants were delivered that I had ordered last fall & had forgotten about. I had to plant them yesterday or they would have died. I received no joy! Usually when the flowers are in bloom I am at my happiest. My neighbors always comment on how beautiful my flower gardens are. Now I go inside the house when I see them walking my way. I don't want to talk or see anyone. The last few days I haven't wanted to get out of bed. My house is clean because I thought I would be recovering from surgery so I made sure all was nice. Not that I care! I don't answer the phone unless I see it is the hospital or dr. Today my cat caught another baby blackbird that fell off the roof of the house. I am so upset. Dh put it in a tree & I have watched this baby struggle there all day long. Why won't the mom come & get her baby. Why won't something go right! Even my dog is upset about the bird & she will probably make herself sick. Cat is only doing what is natural for her but it makes me angry! OK complained enought don't feel better. 5:38 guess I will just go to bed & hope for a better day tomorrow. My problem is I have always said if you don't like your life change it. People make their own destiny & maybe that is true untill you get sick. Depression is just a state of mind but it finally wears you down. I have never been so tired in my whole life. Will it get better?

It HAS to get better (((Terry))). I'm so sorry this is all crashing in on you. It is so hard to not be well for so long, I don't know how you have done so well for so long. I know what you mean about the plants and the cat, too. When I'm not well, the little things I usually enjoy are either ignored or even annoyances.

Sweetie, there has to be a point at which you turn the corner. Tomorrow is always a new day, and maybe this next tomorrow will be the one that sees you feeling a little more hopeful. I hope you know your sisters you and want things to get better for you.

You have every right to vent and feel down dear. This has been a long road for you and still trucking for yet another surgery is difficult. I am praying that this is the you are looking for and things will be brighter every day after that. Depression sometimes is a state of mind and other times caused by outside influences like the exhaustion you explained and emotions of dealing with sickness. Hopefully with some wellness headed your way your body will start to recoup some of the chemicals it needs to help you feel better. If not though, talking with your DR about these feelings are ok and really a good idea for you overall health. As you said, sometimes we can't control our life and some health issues are not in our control at all. We are here for you praying for relief real soon.
