Covid delays my Mayo Pain Rehab hope

Posted by rwinney @rwinney, Jun 12 7:26pm

I received a call from my Mayo Clinic Pain Rehabilitation nurse today. She was informing me of Florida's spike in the virus and the reinforced travel rules from state to state. Meaning, because I'm coming from NY, I would be forced to self quarentine upon arrival in FL for 14 days before beginning the program. I'm scheduled to fly out this Wed and start rehab Thursday. I'm now penciled in for September 28th with hope that Covid does not dictate that date as it did my previous 2 dates back to February. Very disappointing.

Rachel @rwinney, That is a real bummer. Sorry to hear the bad news.

Oh no, I know how much you were looking forward to getting started! Everything happens for a reason, but still so frustrating

@rwinney Hi Rachel, I am so sorry your pain rehab at Florida's Mayo had to be postponed. This Covid is messing up such important things, besides being so dangerous in itself. Of course, the idiot young adults in Florida are out and about like nothing is wrong. Leave it to young folks to feel invincible, and not wear masks, keep distant from eachother, etc. I am afraid that here in Illinois, our numbers of Covid patients will rise as things open up as well. Anyway, I felt so bad when I read your post. I do not even know what to say to you. I am here. That is what I want to say. I am here if you want to cry, laugh, tell dirty jokes ( I love them), or whatever. Also, private message me any time, and I will answer. I am your fellow warrior in this terrible disease. I will post about in the Covid is Messing With my Trial Discussion, for updates, but in a nut shell, I do think my feet feel somewhat better today. Talking to my sweet ABBOTT rep today, to adjust my foot IPad. Am I bionic now? Like a Jewish Wonder Woman? It must be the chicken soup in the wires that is helping? Thinking of you, my Rachel. Hang in. I am here to listen. Love, Lori

@katec Indeed it is. I have so much riding on this program as my last hope for explaination, change, acceptance and direction. Was mentally deflating as it's been over a year of dreaming about Mayo helping me. I will not give up though…despite wondering if these are signs that its just not meant to be.

Wow this is disconcerting. It is truly mind-boggling how many things have been turned upside down by Covid19. We are a social species and Covid affects that socialness right at its roots. Rachel I can only add my own sympathy to that of the others who have posted already. As you already said, it's obviously meant to be. We can't keep from our plans being unexpectedly and unceremoniously axed sometimes, all we can do is try our best and leave the results in God's hands. Hang in there and best to you from us both, Hank & Linda

@rwinney What a bummer. If you are like me, it takes me a long time to get my mind in the right place to actually enroll in that type of program. I waft back and forth. Do I really need it? Am I deserving ? Then I have to announce to friends and family re:decision, then delay. This is more than just a bummer. It takes so much to say “Yes, I need this, I want this, I am going.”

I believe this is just the way of the world right now. You didn’t cause this. It is not a sign that the program is not for you. Try not to do this to yourself. Just 10 deep breaths, some self-compassion and a wonderful few minutes of meditation.

May you be free of discord and unhappiness.
Chris
