Guys and Gals,
I am only managing very tiny trips out the house at the moment, and feel so weird I am not driving myself. Even bathing, dressing and being driven to the doctors (bout an hour out the house) KO's me for the rest of the day... in that I feel like I've been given a horse tranquiliser.
So I accept that until I'm stronger I need to prioritise trips like hospital or Doctors.... I read when my eyes are up to it and watch TV while my concentration holds... and I feel so weak I don't miss work at all....but could some of you please share activities that you do to pass the time and keep your brain active? I've had some books recommended which I've found really interesting.
I'm not recieving sick pay, but I'm lucky that this will not put us in financial hardship, but I am conscious that I can't spend a load of money to keep myself occupied.
My family and friends are terrific but they go to college and work, and go out socially and I urge them to go so that I don't keep them under house arrest all the time with me ..... but it's so isolating....how do accept and adapt to that without getting down ? And how do you adapt to the "how long is a piece of string issue" in that I know I won't be this weak forever, but one doesn't know how long it will be until strength is regained?
Any tips will be gratefully recieved
