Stressed out and struggling

Feb 05, 2024

I've been really struggling last 8 yrs to be honest. I stopped taking my vitamins properly back then and suffered consequences, RIGHT knee replacement ended up with broken femur, unfortunately not caught for a week though. This resulted in 6 more surgeries in 2 1/2 yrs on my knee. Wasn't expected to walk again but I surprised everyone and did. UNFORTUNATELY, All those years in wheelchair made me gain 75 lbs, since I was. I longer hiking and biking 60-80 miles a week and going to the gym.

Then, fell and broke my RIGHT wrist, which didn't heal properly, this too resulted in surgery with pins and plate. Started getting back to my love of fishing and losing weight, down 59 lbs

When life dealt me another blow, not quite year later, passed out, (they don't know why) but when I fell, I broke my left shoulder at the neck of the ball joint and my right ankle in 3 PLACES so was on complete BEDREST, non weight bearing for 11 weeks.

Learning to walk again, is VERY hard and painful. Luckily my husband has been helping me keep on track food wise once I got home from the nursing home. No idea what I weigh,  but my clothes still fit so I take that as a win. Now I've been diagnosed with SEVERE OSTEOPOROSIS, just got the infusion for it, hope it helps.

Not sure why I'm writing this, maybe someone else has been here or understand and can help me get out of this funk. I maintained so well until my damn knee replacement.

Now exercise is so hard, I follow my nutritionist and Drs plans, but feel like I need to do more.  IDK

Just frustrated. Thank you if you've read this far. Hugs
