Default Re: Welcome to Coping with Emotions

I am new to the forum. In August 2017 I was diagnosed with a life-threatening fungus infection in my hip which required two surgeries, the last one in April, 2018. Recovery is progressing although I have to rely on a walker to get around. I have so many feelings of grief, sadness, feeling trapped and stuck and anxiety that are overwhelming at times. I am almost always in pain but cannot take pain meds other than Tylenol. I have support from my family but get very lonely and would like to get support from anyone who might have experienced a similar situation. Before this illness I led an active life that I miss very much. I feel sad when I see people walking around as I have lost the gift of mobility. I do hope to regain it eventually though.
