I need help - but I just hate asking for it
This post is kind of a reversal of the theme of the forum . Care giving ... I've always been the "care giver" .... if anyone is sick or needs help - I'm there . now I'm in the position to need short term care . I'm getting a new hip on Tuesday.
I know this sounds totally crazy ~~~~ but I find it almost impossible for me to ask for help . I haven't told anyone I'm going in for surgery . I know I'll need help because DH works long hours during the day. I just keep saying , "I'll be Ok " . Why do I do this ??? Am I the only one that does this ?
All my friends are my age with their own problems. I just can't figure myself out . I'd love to hear your opinions & stories . I'll be in the hospital till Friday - but I'll be reading here. Any ideas ?
