I woke up feeling really bad this morning.  Not anxiety exactly but a sick feeling.  I had to come to work as Friday we begin our vacation and I can't be off work two days before my vacation.  This is a new feeling, maybe I'm just coming down with something.  I plan to nap during my lunch hour (I have a pillow and blanket and can fall asleep on the floor).  I am hoping the nap will help

I fell and chipped a bone in my foot on Aug 16th. The doctor put a cast on it and told me to come back in 4 weeks for a re-check. The following Thursday, my cast had gotten so loose that is was falling off my foot. I saw the doctor again and this time had a fibreglass cast put on. Because the first one was so loose, my chipped bone turned into a severe fracture. Yesterday morning, with the cast literally in pieces on my foot, I saw the doctor again. He replaced the cast with another plaster one. Each time I've had the cast on, I've been told to rest and not use the foot for at least 72 hours, which means I have to stay upstairs because that is where my bed and the washroom is. I'm feeling very aggravated and was in such a mood today that I had to take 2 ativan to calm me down. I'm upset because I feel dumb in having this happen to me. I opened up a gate to tell some guests that my Aunt was ready to serve food, and forgot that there was a 14 inch drop to the ground. I went on all fours, twisting my foot in under me , in front of at least a dozen male guests. I got really disoriented when I fell even though I didn't hit my head. I snapped at several people while lying there on the ground. I've apologized, but it still makes me feel like an idiot. Now I have to depend on my husband to look after me and bring me food, beverages etc...help with showering, and all of the housework. He was recently laid off and we have no income and that's taking a big toll on him, and it's making me very anxious. I don't see my Pdoc until Sept. 22nd, and my family doc is just getting home from vacation and is booked solid. I don't trust any of the other doctors at the clinic there. I just feel so down, like there's no end in sight. Why is life so miserable??

*hugs to Lorraine-NL* I'm having foot trouble myself. Last Oct I had a stress fracture, have no clue how it happened, had to wear what looked like a space boot for quite a while. well now that same foot is swollen just like before and my doc is also on vacation. she doesn't have anyone covering for her though. I've been trying to stay off of it, but feel bad for making my boyfriend do everything. I understand the frustration of not being able to do anything. don't have any advice though.

I've been super busy with work, but I"m happy to report my fiance's med cocktail seems to have dragged him out of his depressive cycle! Sometimes you just need the hospital, i guess.

Oh hugs to all of you! You need 'em!

Georgie, I hope you're feeling better today and that the nap helped you make it through the day. Where are you going on vacation?

Closure: I'm sorry to hear about all the stress in your life. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your father's speedy recovery. Remember to take care of yourself too!!!!!!!

Lorraine: Try not to feel guilty about your husband helping you. Think of all you do for him when you're up and around. Let him help you now. I'm truly sorry to hear about your foot. It sounds really painful and frustrating to remain essentially on bedrest. Just another day or so and you'll be up and around again.

Take care of yourself and thanks for posting!

Hey. Still here; just been to depressed to really even think to post anything. I am so depressed over my whole pregnancy problems. With the fainting I am never home alone now and feel so down about it. I am 33 weeks now. My doc said that I can start walking around some now but of course, not by myself. I need time alone, you know. My family is driving me crazy, this pregnancy is driving me crazy, I am going crazy. I had an MRI done today on my brain to check for any abnormalities that could be causing the frequent fainting but I really think it is pregnancy related. My ob just wants to be safe and thorough. I haven't enjoyed this pregnancy at all. My ob plans to induce at 36 weeks, thank goodness; he says that I have been through enough. My boy is big for his gestation period which is good and should be fine. He has dropped alot so I may have him before then. I don't sleep much anymore so I stay tired and try to nap during the day but I can't get comfortable and stay upset most of the time anymore. Frankly, I am just miserable. I am nauseated all the time now too.

So, I have whined enough. That is what is up with me. Hanging in there. I try not to take the Ativan now since I am close to delivery. My pdoc wants me to try not to so they don't have to worry about my baby when he is born being addicted to it. It doesn't help much anyway.

Hugs to all of you. I hate that we suffer so much.

(((Missflip))) You are having a miserable time of it, but you are so near the end. I'm sorry to hear you're suffering so much. It just kills me. You are always welcome to vent here. I wish I could give you some time alone, but on the other hand, I can understand why your family just wants to be there and keep you and the babies safe. It will get better. Just hang in there. You're not alone, we're here with you.

Sorry for having been MIA for about a week. I was a little stressed with my family situation and needed time alone, but I am back now. I am doing well considering the fears I've had of remission. For the past 3 years I've had a manic episode in the late spring/summer, but not his year. yeah!!! :-) My moods are ok, and I'm glad to be back.

I'm doing horrible right now with stress, depression, and anger. Most I'm pretty sure are situational. My family situation is worse than ever, my dad is having even more health problems, and I am beyond broke. I've begun paying bills with credit cards and then I'm not even able to pay those. I've always had good credit and now I'm on my way to ruining it. I just can't catch a break and I finally had a nervous breakdown last night. I cried hysterically for hours. I twisted my ankle today and again broke down because it's just another thing to add to my list. Sorry I haven't been posting here much, but as you can see I haven't been holding up.

Hi Everyone! blush

Sukay here and accounted for! Just wanted to chime in as well.

I've been feeling pretty good. Just trying to hold everything together as I get ready for my daughter's wedding in November.

Been doing a lot of planning with her getting things done just right. Threw a bridal shower for her last weekend, which I got very anxious about. Just wanted everything to go just right and perfect!...lol

Lots of anniversaries for me...my father's death the end of August and his birthday next weekend. My therapist says that unconsciously that plays a big roll in my mood fluctuations. She says that I am very sensitive right now and that is why my moods can go from depressed to irritable to a raging lunatic all in a matter of a couple of minutes and then I can be perfectly okay. I'm getting more anxiety...but given the circumstances I think that would fall under "the pre-wedding jitters"...lol.

Plus from August thru November I have 3 wedding showers, 2 baby showers and 3 weddings to go to!

So....as I always say...I'm hangin tough!...lol (wink, wink serafena)
