 Re: A big setback

Nikki, that is horribly, horribly bad luck. Sympathies. You have every right to feel depressed and fed up. "Others are worse off" doesn't mean what you've got to cope with isn't bad - by that logic only one person in the whole world is allowed to feel upset/depressed/miserable, because for everyone else there is 'someone' who is worse off!

Remember also that pain is tiring and gets you down.

Make sure you eat good nutritious food, think about whether you ought to supplement with e.g. vitamin D (most people are deficient, most of the time). Get out in the sun and green surroundings when you can.

Think of one or more projects to occupy yourself with during this very, very trying time.

Vent here when you need to - we're listening.
