fed up

Oct 20, 2015 3:56 AM

The operation i had on my back hasn't worked out. I'm now on crutches and in more pain than i have been in the last 10 years. Totally fed up and pissed off. Just can't cope anymore. I hate my life.

Sorry your pain has become so much worse. Life can really suck.

The absolute dIssapointment and despair of hoping surgery will help and turns out to make you feel worse is indescribable. For me anyhow, I am so sorry that this has happened to you. We're all here to listen and talk to. Prayers and good vibes coming at you ✌️

Yanbo, I am so sorry that you had a failed surgery. I've certainly had my share of those and when you've psyched yourself mentally to get through not only the fear of the procedure but the recovery as well and end up the same as before or worse, it's downright disheartening. I am sending you gentle {{{{Hugs}}}} and prayers that you are able to get this sorted out and get some relief. I know what it's like to hate your life. It's not easy when you have pain that never goes away. It drags on you mentally as well as physically and totally drains your energy. I wish there was something I could say or do that would make you feel better. I can only say that I do understand, you're not alone and somehow, by the grace of God, you'll get through this. I hope you can catch a break today and that you start feeling better than you do now.🌻🙏🏻

Yanbo, I'm so sorry you didn't have a successful outcome. But don't give up hope. Maybe there is something that your pain specialist or surgeon can still do to help you. You're in my thoughts and prayers! 🙏🌼

It may seem a dark time at the moment but try to remember that hope is like fire, always try and keep it going and trust that even from the smallest of embers fire, as well as hope, can be rekindled by the smallest of acts.
I know it's difficult when you pin all your hopes on a surgery that does not deliver, but you never know what the future truly holds including advances in technology and pharmaceuticals.
And if all else fails you can use my mantra (which I borrowed from Nemo) 'Just keep swimming, just keep swimming' which is a bit bizarre really as there is no way I can ever swim again, but hey hoe I can still bob about a bit 😆
