Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I'm feeling discouraged, frustrated, a bit angry, and also a little scared regarding my lack of progress re rehab of the leg. Very little progress in strength or balance over the past 6 weeks. Frustrated with my PT guy and also my surgeon, and also aware of the impact of going back to work full time, seeing clients all day with little opportunity to even get up and walk around the building for a few minutes at a time.

I'm starting to worry that I may never fully recover.

Having said that, I am aware that walking with a cane or with a weird, hitching gait is a pretty mild thing to deal with in terms of what so many others face, or have faced. So just a minor whine in the scheme of things, and I can still haul myself up and down the galley ladder to offer the warm or cold beverage of your choosing, and a lovely scone baked by others on the crew. Just can't climb up the masts to set the sails.

How be all my mates?
