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.

Sewsilver does your hospice have a support centre? If so they may be able offer you some of the practical help you need. Sending very best wishes to you and hope that you have a rapid recovery. flowers

Thank you all for your wise and kind words and offers of help. You will probably never know how much Grans reaching out to me has helped. And that's in addition to all the times in the last few weeks GN has made me laugh at a time when not much else has.

I've been cursing because my oven blew up just as I was going to put the chicken in it. Reading your post has put it all in perspective for me! Do hope you can get through the next 6 weeks - it must be an absolute nightmare. Best wishes to you and DH flowers

Just to update all you supportive people, I was admitted to orthopaedic ward last night as I now can't walk at all. DH in hospice 15 miles away so no chance of seeing him . It feels impossible and am struggling not to feel sorry for myself. I daren't even imagine what he's going through.

Hi sew I can imagine how down you feel, I dont know if its possible but can you get someone to take a laptop or similar and set skype up so at least you can have a chat and see each other. {{{hugs}}}

Lilygran Mon 23-Sep-13 13:08:04

Sewsilver I hope things get better for you very soon

NfkDumpling Mon 23-Sep-13 13:50:53

Hopefully orthopaedics will sort you out soon quickly so you can get together - somehow.

bikergran Mon 23-Sep-13 14:06:58

Faye Mon 23-Sep-13 14:14:23

When I read your post sewsilver I said to myself, oh no. I hope you have lots of support and I wish we could all help in some way. flowers

dustyangel Mon 23-Sep-13 14:39:01

Best Wishes Sewsilver, It must be so frustrating. I hope that you are not in too much pain and will be out again soon.

kittylester Mon 23-Sep-13 14:46:04
