Skip to comments.going to be staying in a nursing home (prayer requested)
Posted on 04/13/2012 7:14:20 PM PDT by se_ohio_young_conservative
I have not been posting as much on FR lately. I have been dealing with a lot of health issues in recent months. A lot of it is personal and some of my friends don't even know about about everything im dealing with. I have not wanted to be seen as whining or overwelming someone with my own problems.
I initially rejected the idea. But I have decided that spening 6 to 12 months in a nursing home is the best thing for me right now. I can focus on outpaitent therapy and get the care I need.
I am having a lot of problems with my muscles and joints (related to R.A.) I have stomach probs/bathroom accidents and it is getting more and more difficult to take care of my own hygine. plus other personal probs... A lot of this takes a toll on me emotionally as well..
I will feel weird staying in a nursing home at the age of 26. I am a father, im a husband. But we believe it is the best thing for me right now. to hopefully improve physically and emotionally..
ty for keeping me in your prayers
Prayers for you and our family.
Nursing homes have people of all ages. Don’t worry about that. Concentrate on getting well.
Best of luck to you and your family. Pray and Focus on getting better, and it will pay off for you.
No thanks necessary...it's part of the service here at FR.
Be well, my FRiend.
Prayers for you my friend!
I admire your courage for sharing your story. God Bless you and best wishes for many more years.
You certainly have my prayers!
you can always whine here!
Just kidding. Godspeed. You're best days are ahead of you. You'll see.
Our prayers will be with you.
Prayers up. Stay positive!
It is easy to see how depression could set in under those physical conditions. I’ve been dealing with a sprained wrist and have been depressed. You make me feel like a such a slacker. Oh, and I’m a whole lot older than you, too. A little arthritis at my age is not so unusual.
Take care of yourself and remember, you can always find friends here on FreeRepublic.
It is weird being the youngest patient, but I met some really beautiful older folks. It was surprising, despite illness and other problems, how how well they coped. Many if them had great sense of humor despite their afflictions. They really inspired me. The experience taught me not to feel sorry for myself, stop whining, and above all, be grateful for what I have and enjoy living.
Anyway, may God grant you a speedy and lasting recovery. Hope to see you here again soon.
Our Heavenly Father send your healing love to this man and his family. Comfort and strengthen them in their time of trouble. We thank You for Your Blessings.
Have they checked your thyroid? I’ve read recently that hypothyroid and Rheumatoid Arthritis can go together.
Prayers for you to get well.
Love you. Take care and please continue to post here.
Hey good luck man. I’m really sorry to hear what you are going through and wish you a speedy recover.
I’ve often not agreed with some of your posts, but I know you have a lot of passion about politics and are committed to the conservative cause. Hope to have you back in fighting form as soon as possible.
Best of luck! Will say a prayer for you.
Gosh, how difficult a decision this must have been, but also a courageous one. Be assured that you will be in the prayers of your FReeper family.
A (somewhat) younger friend was recently in a nursing home/rehab facility. Hubby went for a visit and encountered a "seasoned" citizen who stated "We like it when there's visitors here...it makes everyone be on their best behavior!".
Keep your chin up and take in all the simple things.
My prayers go with you along whith hopes for a quick recovery.
I pray that you will heal and be rejoined with your family.
