I Am Worried About My Health

I’m going on week 7 of an abscess/wound - the dressing needs to be changed every two days minus weekends, which started last week. I have a home care nurse coming into my house to do the unpacking and repacking the wounds (an additionacut/wound was made by the ER doc I first saw)...they’re healing super slow ☹️
My anxiety is 8-9 out of 10, for having her come in. My home is my refuge, I rarely have’s only family usually.
Ugh....I hate this.
Waiting for the nurse now....

Check out my supplies 😖

Ooof I had one on my face once that sent me to hospital. I had a hole in my face and I had to do the same for weeks after as well as being on heavy ABs. I know the feeling and it sucks so bad but you'll get through it.
Saw my surgeon today and he said it’s looking good, so that gave me hope. @Joeyyy
Stress will make it worse on you. If your health allows for a higher protein diet, I'd do that. And try meditation. Best wishes.
👍🏼 Do those things already....they help, and yes, stress does lower ones immune system. Doing my best to lower my stress. @SW-User
That's a lot of stuff. Although you're healing slowly, you're healing. Stay mindful of that.
I shall, thank you. @PhoenixPhail
@Annii You're welcome.
