    I did not realized you had fibro. I know a little about, but do know know that do. Managing my emotions and frustration were challenging during ( still sometimes) recovery was hard.
    I have discovered that my realizing that things work out whether I am involved or not wad hard to accept. I am a parent of adult children that also need my support, so believe me I do understand.
    You will get stronger and things will balance.
    I have learned my not being able to help has given the opportunity for other solutions to be revealed.
    I think the words Patience and Acceptance are now engraved on my brain.
    Have a great week. One of continue growth in strength and peace.

    Thank you, @1GreatGran . I'm not a fan of fibro. I don't think I am in bad shape because of it either. My thigh (entire topside) cramped/spasmed the fist few days. The best way I can describe it is, like a labor pain. One of those that makes someone else look at that monitor like thing and say "Oh, that was a good one". But instead of stopping and starting, it just hurts for hours straight. If that's not fibro, then I must have been a horrible child!:rofsign:I am much better. My anxiety only lasted a little bit. Thank you for all your kind words.

    I'm 8 wks into recovery now. It was just my husband and I and a great neighbor lady assisting me. She always asked if I was in the mood for company before heading over. I could honestly tell her yay or nay. Some of my family offered to come help( different states) but I really just preferred being more solitary. I also cried super hard describing a scene from Masterpiece theatre to my husband At this point, I focus on excercising my knee and getting 2 or 3 projects done every day-- making the bed, weeding a little... I hope you can find some zen in your day

    @AgilityDog
    Good Morning from Ventura, CA. How are u doing? Isn't it fascinating what we learn about our bodies as we heal.. I never realized how many parts of my body was affected by my hip problems. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you. I don't vhrck this everyday, but promise I will always get back with you.
    I just read my last message, sorry about that first sentence or two... forgot to reread
