 Re: I'm feeling sorry for myself

You deserve to feel sorry for yourself, Melinda! It really does not sound like you are getting the care you need. I am on about the same timeline as you but am in a cast and I am really only managing to work P-T. My family is definitely struggling to keep up but I am tired and irritable every day! Growing bone / healing really takes time and energy. I started trying to baby myself a bit more - more intentional food and I make a steamed milk every afternoon for a break.

I am in the USA where paid time off is so scarce but if you qualify for FMLA maybe a 2nd opinion or being more assertive with the dr would be worthwhile? No matter what. Tell your family straight out that you need 2 weeks of TLC and tons of rest!!
