Hi everyone... long time, no see. After my sister died earlier this year I kinda went through a mild depression. Right after she died my daughter broke her arm and had to have a metal rod put in her arm (it is removed now). Then my grandpa died and my uncle (mom's youngest brother) died and I really got low. I saw a counselor for a few sessions and I'm feeling better. I still can't believe my sister is gone and my heart aches everyday but I'm going to enjoy life and I know she wants that.
I did get a new job... just had my 90 day review and I like it much better than Chase. My pain is still about
the same... I have ups and downs. The Fentanyl, Elavil and Oxycodone still seem to be my magic formula and I've become more active like I wanted to. I've lost about
15 pounds, it's not much but it'd a start. My daughter and I even completed a 5k walk for my daddy to support prostate cancer research. I had to stop about
two thirds of the way but after about
a half hour I was able to get up and complete the race.
I hope everyone here is doing well. I missed my HW family but I had a lot going on and really didn't go online much at all. I think about
you guys often. It is hard being in constant pain (preaching to the choir) but it's even harder when you don't have a group of folks that can relate to what you are going through and helping with suggestions or letting you vent. I didn't realize how cathartic this board is until I wasn't on it anymore. So how are you all doing?
