I just found out my disk in my back is gone. Bone on bone. I'm going to have to have surgery and my man is not supportive. He doesn't listen to what I'm going thru. He didn't even realize my legs were going numb and my right one was going out from under me before my last Injection on Wednesday. He told me last night that I've been worse since the injection which I've been having back spasms on top of everything else and my sugar has been thru the roof. I get no help around the house I'm the only one that drives were working in getting his license back but I don't know when. how is this house is going to run with me getting the surgery and maybe staying in the hospital n not being able to drive. He goes to work at 2:30 am-3pm He is a good dad but does favor our daughter. I'm so stressed out thinking I'm going to have no control and my house is going to be upside down. I'm the one who does everything. How do I get the mindset to let it go and take care of myself and don't end up over doing it after the surgery which I've done many times before. I was driving 2 days after my last back surgery which wasnt as intense as this one will be. I drove with a cast on after ankle surgery and did grocery shopping. It's my back I don't want to be more disabled than I already am. I hope it fixes me and I can be normal and go back to work. I just don't know how to say screw it and not take care of everyone but me.
