I’m sorry to say that I will not be able to hold the PPD SpeakEasy support phone chat that was scheduled for this coming Tuesday.
DH and I are both dealing with spinal ouches. His pain is much greater than mine. 3 days ago he herniated disc in his lower back. Recovery time is a total crapshoot: it can take a couple of weeks to several months before he is comfortable again. The tension of this situation is causing my neck pain to flare up, so as you can imagine, ours is not a cheerful home right now. I’m not sure which is harder to bear: my own considerable discomfort, or his pain. The former stretches my patience and ability to react kindly, but his pain just tears my heart. He is such a good man, he really does not deserve any pain ever. And I am determined to be as kind to him as possible during his time of need. He has been such a loving caregiver during the worst of my depression, that I am determined to rise up to the occasion, now that he needs me.
I’m sorry to have to cancel this call, I know many of you look forward to it very much. I hope you understand that I have to respect my capacity (or in this case, lack thereof) during this tough time for my family.
Please send healing thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
