Fighting depression today

Stage 3 lymphedema back view before treatments

Image via Wikipedia

I am partly handicapped which makes walking or standing difficult for me. To continue to work, I use a walker to walk from the kitchen into the garage to my car. When I get to work, I walk a few steps to the back door and sit in my rolling office chair. Lymphedema and a weak bladder causes me to get up about 5 times during the night. I recently pulled the leg muscle in my right leg that runs all the way up to the groin. It is giving me extreme pain just to take a step, pick up my foot to put on my shoe, or to get into bed. I had a bad night, almost in tears with the pain of walking to the bathroom slowly. And had a lot of trouble actually getting into bed! If you are a praying person, I’d appreciate prayer for this to heal quickly. I stayed home from work today and am sitting with the heating pad. Just trying to not think about being so debilitated.
