 Re: nausea and depression

Debra,
What does your doctor say about the nausea? Depression is normal, but donít let it consume you. Are you a believer in Christ? My faith helped me to get through the depression, but it wasnít easy. I broke my leg in Bethlehem (Palestine) on a mission trip and had a rod implanted in Jerusalem. I promise you will be able to walk again. I broke my leg 6 months ago, and I can walk fine now. I enjoyed physical therapy. You get to meet people who are going through similar issues, and have the opportunity to make new friends. I didnít know about this website when I broke my leg, but I think itís a great way to connect with people in similar situations. Please note: some people on here who havenít healed after long periods of time are not the norm. In fact, itís more likely that someone will search the internet for forums like this if theyíre having a hard time than if they had an easy recouperation. Because theyíre constantly thinking about their injury. That being said, this is a long process. You wonít see great results until you start walking bc walking stimulates bone growth. This is one of those situations where you just have to accept the hand youíve been dealt and believe you will be better in the future. And we are not talking weeks. I do recommend that you start getting off pain pills if possible. I started to cut my pills in half, and took one Tylenol with it. Then I cut them into quarters the next week and took Tylenol until I was only on Tylenol. I was surprised at how well it worked. Pain pills can mess with your mind and the battlefield is in the mind, so you have to be sharp. Hope this helps. God bless.
