Bed-rest

I am supposed to be on bed-rest until the 15th to give the bones in my foot time time to heal. I will have to wear the boot for two months because of the type of break it was. I am having a hard time staying down. I am such an active person. Alice and I have been having a good time together. Her leg seems to be getting a bit stronger. Holding my leg down really hurts. (Even in this hot old boot!)

I am really fighting the depression from lack of activity.I am so afraid I'm am going to gain weight. I know I obsess too much over this. Old habits are hard to break. I  have some time for reading which is good.

I have been looking at some of my daughter's catalogs.  I would really like to get our nails done if we can afford it this month. I just think that most of the time they are over priced.

I just found out that I loss some shingles in the last storm. I am having a roof man come later this week. It always something, but I could always be a lot worst.

I am so thankful for all the good things we have.

Oh no! I'm sorry about the bed rest. That must be very anxiety-provoking. But I'm really glad that you have Alice there with you to comfort you. You're right-- things will get better.

Wishing you well,
NOS

I saw from a previous post of yours that you broke your foot in the storms in Oklahoma. I was visiting my daughter there the night all the tornados came through. It was very scary. They ended up not hitting where we were. I hope your foot heals quickly. it's hard not being able to get around like usual.

I'm sorry about your foot. I know what you mean about worrying that you will gain weight, but know that is only your mind distorting things. I hope your depression lifts soon, and things look brighter for you. Take care:)
