Four weeks ago I left my partner of ten years. He was very controlling and my already weak mental health was further damaged by this. I have been in the psyciatric unit more times than I care to remember and my list of medication is long...
However, I feel free. I can eat what I want, walk where I want, do what I want...it's all new to me. After ten years of having absolutely no say in anything or control over anything I am suddenly in control...and amazingly coping!!! My best friend said yesterday that she had never seen me looking so good.
There is one fly in the ointment though... Four weeks ago I broke my wrist. Although the actual break is healing very well I have some nerve damage also. I am wearing a big brace that covers my wrist, hand and thumb. This pretty much makes my hand useless. I have already had four weeks off work and I have now been told to have another four weeks...then who knows.
I have battled and battled to beat depression and anxiety. It was still there, especially the anxiety, but it was under control. I just fear that this setback with my wrist, which is already making me feel despondant, will lead to depression.
I just don't think I can go back there again.
