Something’s not right

Re: rough time

@outlander

You never have to apologise luv, plus you have no reason to apologise. You're not dragging me down at all! sometimes we just need someone to talk to, someone to listen to, and a shoulder to cry on. 😘😘😘😘

Re: rough time

Thanks @Bella1978
I really hope i hear back from a service soon to at least have a chat with to point me in a direction or if they can help. I guess until then i just have to try and work out my next move. I have my dr tomorrow morning and then again in 3 weeks before she leaves. Maybe she will be able to help me out abit too.

Re: rough time

@outlander

I hope u hear back soon luv!?

And yes, hopefully ur gp can give u some suggestions. How is ur hand luv? X

Re: rough time

I can only email one or 2 services at a time in case they say they can help. @Bella1978 so its rather slow but theres only one other to wait on ao fingers crossed. Then will have to extend my search even further away atm im up to an hrs radius.
Will see what my gp says tomorrow. Need to cover a few things for meds etc as well.

My hand is getting there slowly. Its frustrating but has alot of damage so im expecting a slow recovery. I can move my fingers though and can hold the weight of a stress ball. And hold it in my hand so im more further along now. We went to move to the next phase but the nerves werent co operating so just slowing down a little bit more then try again. Just have to keep working on the exercises i have atm but with rest days as well.

@outlander Saw you behind the like!

I have to sleep. Hope you get some too. 

I worry about your hand, but you are doing the right thing with exercises.

Re: rough time

Morning @Appleblossom
Thank you for the concern. It is slowly healing thankfully. Hopefully soon ill be able to do some more things...



Morning @Snowie @Sans911 @Bella @Bella1978 @Mazarita

Im headed to the drs this morning. I need to discuss some med changes and will ask again about possibly a peer support worker or another service/psych that she could reccomend. My own searching doesnt seem to be bringing up all that much yet so fingers crossed.

Whats everyone elses plans for today?

Re: rough time

Yes  @outlanderbut being a piano teacher, I know a bit about the physiology of the hand, as well as having my own hand problems.

Please look after them. They have been through a lot and they can serve you well.

Re: rough time

Thank you @Appleblossom ❤ its mostly the nerve stuff that's concerning both myself and the hand specialist. We were moving up to another exercise but as soon as i tried it flared my entire arm. Its taking quite a while, i guess its more just about patience and slow healing till its better

How are you going, any plans for today?
