I’m going to be honest with y’all: I’m going into the procedure a little disheartened. I was so hopeful before my surgery that once I had it, I could move forward, but now I’m having the worst pain I’ve ever had in my life. I have barely been able to work, and blogging has been hard. I’m exhausted all the time from dealing with the pain, especially this week when I am not allowed to take Advil for a week before a surgical procedure.
Don’t get me wrong. I still believe everything will be OK, and that someday this will all be a distant memory. It’s just hard when I thought that someday would be now. This is probably the most “Debbie Downer” post I’ve ever written, and I feel guilty about that since I’m always talking about positivity, but sometimes being positive is just plain hard. Hopefully I will be singing a different tune in a few days!
PS-I haven’t been able to respond to all of your wonderful comments, but I promise I appreciate them! I will work on responding as soon as I’m recovered from anesthesia.
