To feel paranoid

I Have been here at the hospice for the last couple of weeks with DH who is now very ill. Two days ago I went out for a ten minute walk, slipped on a conker and fractured my pelvis. I can't decide if I'm living in the middle of a tragedy or a farce. I am now hobbling about on a Zimmer frame and can't drive for 6 weeks.

"Bad things do happen to good people" so sorry to hear, hope you soon feel better and get more mobile and I hope you are getting lots of help with lifts etc, do look after yourself.

That is really really terribly bad luck. Life can be so unfair at times.
I wish you well.

We were only talking last night about how bad things happen to good people [because of something that's hapening to someone we know quite well]. So I'm so sorry to hear of what's happened to you, sewsilver. Big hug from me, also.

Sorry to hear of all the rotten things happening to you - I know it can sometimes feel as if the world and his wife are making things hard for you. I hope you get better soon and you are getting lots of support flowers

My thoughts are with you sewsilver flowers

Mishap Sat 21-Sep-13 11:48:15

Bad enough anyway without this dreadful timing for you both. Are you able to get a lift to the hospice? Thinking of you.

Oh my God sewsilver! That is just awful. So unfair! flowers

Nelliemoser Sat 21-Sep-13 12:20:59

Oh Sewsilver (((hugs))) that is just dreadful!

Marelli Sat 21-Sep-13 12:51:02

sewsilver, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope that people will rally round to give you a bit of support just now. flowers

moomin Sat 21-Sep-13 12:51:35

What a dreadful thing to happen sewsilver, I can't imagine how awful all this is for you at the moment. I, too, am thinking of you and sending flowers to both you and your DH

gracesmum Sat 21-Sep-13 13:16:13

I am SO sorry to hear about this Sewsilver - as if you didn't have enough on your plate at the moment. Like others, I hadn't realised your DH was so poorly, so you must be under a massive strain - this could easily have contributed to the fall along with that pesky conker. Do take advantage of any and all help and support around - and I hope there is plenty, ASK if necessary and, to state the obvious, take care of yourself. Thinking of youu flowers flowers to you both and a huge, but gentle {hug}

Very sorry to read this Sewsilver I don't think we have spoken before, but I am thinking of you flowers

Lona Sat 21-Sep-13 14:25:54

sewsilver that is dreadful bad luck, I'm so sorry that you are having such a hard time.
I too hope that you're getting enough help and support flowers

Grandmanorm Sat 21-Sep-13 15:01:58

Sewsilver how horrible, I do feel for you. I hope your hip heals quickly. flowers and a glass of wine to ease the pain.

Charleygirl Sat 21-Sep-13 15:02:53

Absolutely awful thing to happen to you at this dreadful time. As others have said, I do hope that you are getting help with shopping, housework and also lifts to the hospice. flowers

Life can be really shitty sometimes and just when you think things can't get worse, they do and usually to lovely people. I hope you have lots of support around to help at least with the practical details. Sending hugs and flowers.
