I left the hospital on 12/21/07 for my PE and had the complication the following week with the addtional 20 clots in my belly. My breathing is finally improving this past week--but now I feel the discomfort in my lung and still get very tired. I have been off work since the hospital stay and would like to try and go back next week. (I am going a little stir crazy being at home). I have a desk job-but I know there will be stresses that will take its toll. I am anxious, because I am not sure I can put in a full day. The Dr. says to do what I can-which does not help me in my decision. My mom is a nurse and she is very concerned that I am pushing myself to fast. I am a very active person. Before the PE, I went to the gym 5 times a week. I cannot believe the toll this has taken on me physically and I feel like a wimp that I am struggling with this so much. I need advise from those of you who have gone through this--am I expecting too much of myself?

I am not too bright either. At least not in...
