3 months solid with depression, plus another 2-3 months of on and off bedrest. Completely messed my back up as a result. Rehabilitating myself at the gym etc.

No, I just lay on one side wanting to not be there. I didn't care about my health enough to do anything positive about it.

I am feeling better, thanks. I got help when my phsycial condition became harder and harder to deal with. (Breathless walking to my toilet or fridge in a tiny flat - wakeup call.)

Also, I hope you are feeling better.

I had appendicitis in early November. Recovery consisted almost entirely of laying around not doing anything. If I took two pills instead of one, I fell asleep really fast, so I did a lot of that, to kill the pain and pass the time. Movement consisted entirely of walking from my bed to one of the couches so I could read, except that I would inevitably fall asleep. No efforts were made to prevent blod clots. The thought crossed my mind briefly early in the week, but I decided all my blood was busy healing my abdomen. Bodies are magic like that, right?

Admittedly towards the weekend I did start to get up and take brief walks to the end of my neighborhood and back (that half-mile is a pretty short walk for me).
