- DX FIBRO
I am 3 weeks out from having my left shoulder totally replaced and I must admit I am terrified. I have been trying to do things with one hand and find that it is almost totally impossible for me to do so. I am so scared I am starting to shut down, physically, mentally and emotionally. I sleep all the time and I don't care about anything. My husband is getting irritated with me because whenever he asks me a question I always give him the same answer "I don't care. I am overweight so the fact that I am eating very little isn't really a problem but I am just not hungry anymore. I force myself to eat so my husband won't nag at me. We are both retired and he wants to eat 3 meals a day and I just can't do that. In fact, I don't even get up in time for breakfast so we usually just have 2 meals a day but I would be happy with with one. I'm sure all this stress isn't good for my fibro and other health problems but I don't know how to stop obsessing about it. Has anybody ever had this done and if so how did you manage? My husband will be here to help me but I am sure his patience will run very thin with me. Any advice or encouragement would be appreciated.
