Anice, you could look at options.
1. Quit work, quit PT and just stay home and spend much of that time in bed crying.
2. Quit PT, Tell the Dr. you are firing him and go back to work and probably, no more like for sure, make it all worse to where work will not be an option, then you could stay home in bed and cry.
3. Continue to go to PT, do as the Dr said and go back to work when he feels you are ready. You may be in bed crying now, but if you allow yourself to heal, then when you go back to work, you, your family, your patients, the other nurses, and many others will be blessed because you did things the right way.
You already know that two options are not really options. It is just frustrating knowing that you wanted to go back to work and it is not happening yet. It is a good thing that getting stressed out and frustrating doesn't add to the pain you are in. Opps, that already is taking place. Anice, I say these things and so do the others to let you know we care and can see that you put yourself thought these times of dissapointments by fixing your mind on an outcome before you talk to the Dr who you want to make decisions that are best for you. Imagine you are a nurse and a patient is supposed to follow the Dr order but refuse because they want to do things their way. As a nurse what advise are you going to give them. In all this I hope you are finding ways to enjoy your time at home and make the best of it. Finances are probably a big issue but you cannot allow that to hinder your healing.
I hope tomorrow or actually later today is a good day for you. You are a very important part of this forum and you help plenty of us out. When its time for you to return to work, you will no doubt do extremely well.
