Accepting the caveat that others have it much worse, it still doesn’t negate my own misery.
A series of medical problems and surgeries have kept me as a quasi-invalid for 6 months, and it’s driving me batty. Not only must I stay home, I can do almost nothing while locked down. I can’t lift, walk much, drive, nor work on any project that isn’t keyboard-based. For reasons, the doc has me limited in travel, lifting, walking, and other types of movements I won’t bore you with.
Go boating? Nope, doc says way too much chance of strain or being jostled in waves.
Camping? Nope, no traveling beyond a certain radius, due to blah, blah, plus might overlift.
Fishing? Nope, can’t carry the tacklebox, and a fish on the line plus leverage. etc. etc.
Clean house? Nope, must limit bending and torso twisting likely with the vacuum (seriously).
Go for a walk? Only if close, limit hills, recommend just walking around backyard.
Drive somewhere? Again, only short trips, no long journeys.
I have a post op visit in a few weeks, which should result in releasing some limitations. I’m counting the hours and fighting the boredom till then. I started watching Breaking Bad, and began to wish I had a murderous drug dealer in my basement like Walt. At least I’d have someone to talk to.
