I've dealt with anxiety and depression bulk of my life. This pending knee replacement is taking it's toll. 2 bad knees, torn rotator cuff, right shoulder hurt during last fall and back. I've always been active and very independent and obviously not so much lately. I have things I should be doing and I'm not... tears and fears are relentless. Only one more week before my surgery but some days I wonder if I can do this.. Like I have a choice. I'm not alone but I feel so alone until I read some of the posts on here. I lost my mom two years ago, she was my best friend in so many ways. Took the bad fall four weeks later and down spiral since. One day at a time and maybe soon one step without pain. So very glad to have this site.
