Looking after ourselves

Senior Contributor

Yay! It’s happening!

Yesterday I got a call from The Hospital to say there's been a cancellation and I go in on Tuesday to have my right wrist operated on for Carpal Tunnel. I'm excited as my left wrist was a success. So looking forward to having no nerve pain and no more pins and needles as well. This mean I will come of some medication as well. .

Re: Yay! It’s happening!

Last week I developed an infection to my wound. I was put on antibiotics to get rid of the infection. I had the stitches removed and it was a relief because it was swollen and infected. We has to squeeze the puss out! 
Today Iwent back and my hand is heaps better. Yesterday I removed all the dead skin. It looks so much better. Some spot has bled because of the new skin not stretching. I go back to the hospital tomorrow.

i am now no longer experiencing nerve pain or pins and needles. It was really worth having the operation after a long battle of these horrible pain. I sleep so much better now and my voices are sort of under control. I'm slowly drifting away from my dad as I have realised he is depending on me. I did not stay the weekend. I spent the weekend sorting out papers etc and found another poem. 
I have put it up but there is no title. Let me know what you think!

Re: Yay! It’s happening!

Im doing okay. My right hand is starting to hewal. Just got a scab and its getting smaller.  I hope to hear from Aust Post shortly to see if i can gety a casual job.  

My mental wellbeing is doing okay. I have been busy.  I am to give a speech on Wednesday about my recovery journey for the Mental Health Week. Im a bit nervous but that is to be expected.

I hope you are doing well too!

Re: Yay! It’s happening!
