Tired of doing everything alone.
Recently I had surgery and am on my own to heal. I’ve never felt so alone in my life. It’s been tough not having support to help with the little things…dressing, trying to get a prescription filled, making myself something to eat when I’m so exhausted and not really hungry. I’m in my 50’s and have never had surgery but I think my recovery is taking longer than it should…idk.
I really should’ve insisted on staying in the hospital for a few days at least. My doctor, nurses, anesthesiologist…no one tells you how tough it might be after on your own and I did ask a lot of questions.
The after effects of anesthesia makes me feel hungover or is it withdrawal from it? I feel teary and anxious.
I have friends that have called/texted me for which I am grateful. I understand people have their own lives. I have family but we’re not close. My elderly Mom has home care and can’t get out on her own.
It’s just that feeling of how alone and lonely I have been and am made me want to reach out today. I wanted to see if anyone else out there has dealt with this and how they managed?
