Managing just
« on: September 02, 2020, 09:23:59 am »
Hello all, it’s been a long time since I contributed to the forums.2020 is a ordeal.feb I broke my knee and upper leg ,this resulted in full leg. Cast. Sent to nursing home that had physio ,after a week phumoania set in and I was admitted to Hos just as they where gearing up for Covid.two weeks later tested pos for Covid and a very differcult fortnight followed. Went back to nursing home ,home to my home end of May.
       During illness from Covid I was struck by how trippy it was.Now I hardly recognise myself as I am weak and tired not doing physio ,staring at bedroom ceiling . I could say a whole lot more .I don,t think I have ever had such a messed up recovery. Reaching out as I am currently surfing on anxiety attack and am doing what I can to bring myself down.
   I hope all my past forum friends are prospering as I still hope to but am struggling to not be a mute mess.

Home carer Sammy has made lunch ,lucky me, then I plan to crash into sleep. Again Ray thanks to remembering.
