Lately I’m not sure which is worse physical or emotional pain. 😞
The emotional pain of watching and listening to my elderly parents slowly deteriorate is destroying me piece by piece.
The physical pain I’m experiencing in my left hip coupled with the constant pins & needles in my left foot is becoming more and more unbearable.
I am so very angry and sad because in my case, both of these pains are a direct result of that fateful day in June 2016 when surgery gone wrong left me #paralyzed.
That surgery in June 2016 was a hip revision, it was supposed to correct the surgery I had the year prior (June 2015) that was not a success either, it wasn’t supposed to leave me paralyzed. Hip revision surgery wasn’t supposed to leave me in more physical pain than I was in prior to surgery. Hip revision surgery wasn’t supposed to leave me confined to a #wheelchair for the rest of my life. Hip revision surgery wasn’t supposed to leave me unable to help my parents age gracefully. Hip revision surgery wasn’t supposed to leave me crying more often than not.
While I recognize that I’m not the only person who has dealt with or is currently dealing with aging parents, if it wasn’t for hip revision surgery gone wrong I would be able to help my parents more; I would be able to prepare meals for them, I would be able to go to their house whenever I wanted/needed and not be dependent on my honey to drive me there, and so much more.
I’m sorry for those of you reading this that may feel like I’m complaining, again, I wish I didn’t feel so sad, so angry, so unhappy. . .I wish I could do more than sit in front of this keyboard and complain.
