What a gloomy day today has been -- rain and cold. I had my first PT appointment since the surgery and left feeling rather depressed.
I'm just tired of feeling limited and so darned tired. Then having them tell me I'm doing too much. Only lift a pound or two (I didn't tell them I'd been doing more than that for more than a few days -- not lifting, really, balancing things.) Not being able to drive and having to rely on others... it just makes me feel bad. Not sorry for myself. Just bad.
So I cry. It seems like I cry all the time -- it takes absolutely zero to set me off.
The thing is, I'm uncomfortable, I'm limited. I'm not in pain. I have so very much for which to be grateful. Go figure.
Meanwhile, I do have that purr therapy I speak of so often!
So, tomorrow is supposed to be nicer, and maybe I'll be nicer, too!
I do have a "list."
Call gutter cleaner. (Check.)
Give Rick car that's leaking oil to take in for service. (Check.)
Pick up passport renewal paperwork. (Check.)
Do taxes. (Not yet.)
Sew button on felted bag. (Check)
Finish knitting matching handwarmers and scarf. (Check.)
Finish other pair of handwarmers. (Check.)
Take winter clothes downstairs. (Not yet; postponed)
Make chocolate chip cookies for friends who help me out (this weekend)
My boss gave me several assignments to add to the work-at-home list, and that's good, so I can work off the sick hours and not have to go into vacation time.
Thanks for bearing with my moaning. Cheery Jeanie will be back soon!
