If you have not yet, read the post (thread) started by Cassie under the exercise tag. There is a lot of helpful ideas there.
At this point in your recovery, please don’t worry about feeling superficial. It is early yet and this thing is quite the shock to the body, to the person, to everything. I’d say “never” feel that way, but it is bound to wiggle its way into the thoughts anyway. Just don’t dwell on it too long…or if you feel like dwelling for a while, throw rocks at a river or bread at ducks-please, not rocks at ducks! Take an art class even if you have no talent.
I’m not sure what to say about your partner. My own family isn’t supportive even though they had to take care of my pet for the 2 months I was in hospital/rehab. As if I’m faking this whole thing. Check out the publications available on this website. My family wouldn’t read them, but the info helped me understand what I’d need to be aware of doing for myself.
We’re here for you.
