well things didn't go as I expected for my foot. I go up and down a lot and feel even more like a prisoner. I am attached to a wound vac and it had consumed me. I cried I threw temper tantrums whe nurse didn't do it right. I could have had serious problems because of it.. After i loged a complaint who do they send to my house on saturday her. It was like dumb and dumber with her. She was nervous I was scared. It was akward.. this machine is to help heal my wound. It's horrible. I have mostly accepted it but have bad days and they suck.. I have a happy jar that isnt tofull . I feel like i am in ground hog day same thing over and over . Now they think there may be and infection. . This has been going on since september 26th.. I try so hard to accept what I cannot change. Most of the time I can do it but those down days are horrible and all I want to do is sleep. This hasn't been easy and I feel like I am whinning. feelings are feelings whether good or bad. this is taking a toll on my marriage. My husband has said some really stupid things and at this moment I am mad.. I need to keep finding the inner strength from myself to carry on. I am strong woman but need guidance too.
