I feel so empty and lost, this is the 3rd week and I do not feel real depressed but it was recomended that I might want to take celexa or something else, I want to be drug free as much as possible cause I take blood pressure and a thyroid pill and this **** patch.

Hi Biker!

This is week 3 for me, and I've wandered the house like a wraith all day long.... everyone's gone back to work and gone on with their lives, I can't drive, I have the attention span of a lightening bug so I can't read much, I'm not sleeping well, I can't nap....

I've just had a tremendous pity party today - and I've whined to the cats all day long!!! I just feel like I'm of no use to anyone and that no one has missed me at work - I guess I got used to being the center of attention for a few weeks...

I called the doctor to get something to help me sleep - and I'm going to order a pizza in a minute so I can have another human talk to me today!

Then I'm going to find something chocolate and watch the Olympics - and hopefully be over this when I wake up tomorrow.

WOW! See what I just did! I took my note to you which was supposed to offer hope and comfort and turned it into an "all about me" message!!

I'm so sorry! I sure hope that you feel better tomorrow. I understand about the patch - I told the dr. at my 2 week check up that I'm just not a patch person - I had a comedy of errors trying to place it, keep it on, keep it unwrinkled, keep it not sticking to the underwear, etc., etc.! He laughed and gave me a gel instead!

Dear Perfectpal,
Your post is great...and I think your note did provide comfort...funny...I think you picked the perfect name. Good luck with the pizza guy.

Bored Stiff!

Sorta wondering how I'm going to get through these next 5 1/2 weeks of recovery. I just got home Saturday from the hospital, (total abd. hyst. incuding cevix, fallopian and ovaries) and tho, I try to get up and walk around I find it easier, just to sit or lay in my bed. Since, I'm not supposed to be doing much of anything anyhow. Yikes! How much TV can one watch? I'm trying to read tho, my attention span is short due to the meds, and I have just ordered a cross=stich kit tho, I'm unsure whether I will have enough attention for this either. When, I'm not in pain, I'm dizzy or sweating. Yikes! Wish I were further along than I am. The pain is kinda constant, tho, I'm finally getting to the Motrin stage. Help! I'm open to any suggestions.

I get real depressed at times and then I am also very grateful and happy at times. I don't know what that is all about. I have asked about a med for all the anxiety, but my doc said that he won't consider it until my 6 week appt. He wants me to go thru allt he feelings and have some type of closure to all of this. I haven't had any babies and need to close this chapter of my life. My DH and I tried to conceive for almost 4 years with LOTS and LOTS of fertility treatments and then I was diagnosed with uterine cancer -- it is all in my siggy...Just wanted to say that you are NOT alone in all of this!! 's!!

My parents stayed with me the first two weeks, and I lived the life of a cat. Wake up, clean up, eat, read a magazine article, eat, nap, eat, watch TV, sleep.
Friends brought lots of magazines because I couldn't concentrate on a book - short articles were better.
It really is sort of a blur now - but I know I didn't accomplish anything, and I'm just now getting to where I can read and enjoy some books. Nothing good for me, just 'thighs and sighs' books!

Old Biker,
I bottomed out emotionally at about 3 1/2 weeks. I posted here about feeling so rotten; I wasn't capable of doing much but I really wanted to. I think that's how you are feeling. Try to hang in there, in about another week you may feel totally different. By week four, I was able to do so much more and now at week five, I feel almost normal if I don't push myself too hard. It feels so good to be able to live again. I was so depressed at your stage, I think it happens to a lot of us, recovery just gets so boring. It should get easier soon.

My dr cleared me to drive yesterday. Two week post op. It lifted alot of the depression. We don't like to rely on other people when we are used to doing everything ourselves. Between that and the pain and the meds, remember pain meds are a downer, its a wonder we can lift our heads in the morning. Magazines are great!! Esp. the hollywood ones, sort of takes you out of reality for a little while.
Best of luck and we are all here for you. Email me if you need to talk.

I was lucky, my boredom only lasted one week. That's how long the pampering lasted for the most part. This last week, I've been busy (not by choice), burried my DH of 22 years, doing things no body should have to do. Finally figured out today that I want to be bored. Going to clean some, eat a chocolate cake with white frosting and watch a lot of TV over the next few days. I really think I'll enjoy that. When your able to get out and bout you'll wish you were on that couch watching TV, trust me. I still have 5 weeks off until I have to go back to work and not remotely looking forward to that.
