I felt like being pushed off a cliff to be entirely on my own.

Very terrifying!

In the hospital, I was at least surrounded by doctors, nurses and
therapists and I was aware they would be gone.

I realized in the first few weeks how slow the recovery would be compared
to my expectation.

Then nurses and therapists did their best to cheer me up before the
discharge.

That unfortunately aggravated my fear as everything they called “what a
great progress” fell so short of my hope and expectation.

I could barely move my leg when they cheered.

You call that a great job? And in a few weeks I will be sent home like this?

That was truly depressing and stressful.
