A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Grounded!!

Well, I saw my allergy physician who has been handling my respiratory problems.  We discussed my using crutches and some alternatives.  We ended up deciding that the crutches were the best solution.  Last month, when I saw him, he wanted me to take it easy and not go out so much.  Yesterday, he emphasised that he really doesn't want me to go anywhere except to my therapist and to rest. 

What a bummer that is!  Before I sprained my ankle, I was able to do some exercise (5 minutes), go grocery shopping, help with dinner, etc.  My coughing and breathing was much improved.  Now, I am grounded!!

Over the telephone, I also spoke with my primary care physician and discussed my ankle which of which is painful and I seem to have even less support along with my good ankle beginning to hurt from all the jarring it takes.  She said that she doesn't want me to go anywhere that I don't have to and wants me to elevate it as much as possible.  Grounded again!!!

I hate needing help and requesting help!! The house is a mess!! Bottom line is that I don't feel in control of my body!! I know that it is temporary, but so is my respiratory problems and two years later I am still having problems.

Thanks for letting me vent and please forgive me if I haven't been able to read blogs and comment like usual.
