Re: Need to talk to someone

Yeah @Tiny_leaf, and they make it sound like you can just switch it off like a tap.
I also don't like inspirational quotes that have no substance, but people will just repeat them to you as if they mean something, or they're magically going to change your life and make everything okay.
Which ends up just making everything feel worse because it's clear they just don't understand.

Re: Need to talk to someone

Oh... I had a similar experience 1 month ago when I had a bone fracture with my toes, and that made me had to stay at bed and stopped activity for several weeks, but I had no one to take care of me and need to do everything by myself at the same time Smiley Sad (like I even went to hospital by myself). So I can really understand that, I was almost crying at that time, its really painful (hug).

Re: Need to talk to someone

Hi @Tiny_leaf 

 

You're right, the way that certain conditions are spoken about on the internet can be incredibly distressing for people with the condition to read. I actively avoid reading anything about my health condition on the internet and leave all questions for my specialist. I guess I'm lucky I have a great specialist, as not everyone has. I imagine those without a good specialist or without an approachable specialist would be vulnerable to doing google searches and stuff to find answers Smiley Sad. I'm not sure if this is the case for you.

 

Anyway, I thought I'd check in to see how you're going today. It's a shame you hurt your ankle but I'm glad to hear that you're dad was able to help you with stuff over the weekend.

Re: Need to talk to someone

I don't know why people act like that when talking about depression and eating...

There's so much pressure and judgement.

No one irl can help me either.

 

My ankle pain has spread up to my knee because that's what happens to my joints when something goes bad.

Re: Need to talk to someone

Hey @Tiny_leaf,

 

I understand it is very difficult to hear how some people speak about depression and issues with eating.  Pressure can indeed be placed on those already suffering and there can definitely be much judgement.  

 

It must be annoying to have the pain in your ankle spread to your knees.  The body can suffer when our emotions and mental activity are heightened.  Is there something you can do to help the pain?  I can relate to having a body in pain it is definitely uncomfortable, particularly when the body is pain for a long time and gets worse.

Re: Need to talk to someone

@MaryRO no I just need to wait for it to heal.

At least in this case it's something that will heal.

Re: Need to talk to someone

I really haven't been doing great...

Re: Need to talk to someone
