Hi Mindy, this is nini, I am wondering, are there any hobbies you can do from your house, do you knit, sew, read books, etc. This is what has continued to help me get back to as much normality as possible. I found its much worse just to think about how it was, its better to try to take action.
Believe me, I know its not easy, its been 12 now since I became disabled. I camped under my covers for the first year and a half. Then I had to start doing more than leaving my house to go to the doctors. I do not knit or sew, but I read alot, volunteer at the elementary school right down the street from me. They require 1 hour a week maximum, and it gets me out. Winter is difficult anyway, its cold, dont like that and neither does my broken body. But what ya gonna do?
Take care, and hope you feel better soon,
