Re: why can't I cope longer?

Took my first proper shower in the house late yesterday but slipped getting out of the small cubical... landef on bum but strained both knees, esp Rt. Its 10hrs later now, 2am, & getting up to toot was  sooo painiul. Soft tissue & swelling i hope all it is, 😣 but no way can I drive to go back to Sydney,  voas rplanned, or vote Sat... Or do the steps to get out the house... so frustrating! 
Why is this happening to me?

Re: why can't I cope longer?

ouch @EOR your injury sounds painful!
has your dr said how long itll take to heal and how to help with recovery with it other than rest?
i know resting and waiting around with a lack of independence can be so frustrating

Re: why can't I cope longer?

Hi @outlander, jcevto see you. Yes I get frustrated that I can't move properly, and finish moving... but Lucky I'm a home bod.
Are you ok,,?

Re: why can't I cope longer?

Re: why can't I cope longer?

Ok'ish is manageable, hey 🤗
Guess there's always gonna be something going wrong.
My 2nd ever home delivered groceries came today, so much easier if you can wait 24hrs for it to arrive. Had a bit of a bnge earlier. About to christen the stainless steel kettle (never did feel right that we BOIL plastic then drink the water). Finally got the dog some chicken necks as I now have a freezer, a cute little tub frzr new for 300 delivered 😯 Now I can make my own ice for the Esky, which is my temp fridge, 'till I get my things out of storage.
