I had to take an ambulance to hospital a couple of days ago and due to Covid practices here in Canada it was to capacity. I am a diabetic and live alone and my day and a half wait to see a doctor was really unpleasant. Anyways...it was not a planned surgery and I am home now they do not keep you and all I had to go by was a few basic instructions that were for anyone. (I am 62 and retired on a small pension at 60 due to health issues I thought it best to take it earlier so it is not very high and I don't have the income to hire someone to help me)
I don't have anyone that lives really close by but I was until this happened driving to another town everyday to take care of my 2 and a half year old grandaughter. The pressure is on to go back but it has only been 3 days and I have flat out refused until after I have my appointment for a check up.
I am struggling just making meals and doing basic tidy ups. I had a lot of problems at the hospital with my blood sugars and had to have shots of glucose several times. Since being home it is all over the place still. I am still having a lot of pain which as I understand is not unusual for most. The garbage is piling up in the can and it has only been a couple of days so far. I am hoping for a few guidelines or suggestions. Has anyone else been in this situation on their own?
Today is the first day I am allowed to take a shower and only a short one. I just find I am overwhelmed and wondered if anyone else had ever been in this situation and if you had any tips for me? Thanks very much!
