During the hussle & bussle of times, you have to remember to take off your high-heels, the make-up, let your hair down, & just let out a breath of fresh of air. I can’t believe it’s been a lil over a week since I had surgery. Honestly it seems like weeks. Perhaps it’s because my days are so long it feels like more time has gone by when it hasn’t. I think I wanted so desperately to feel better & to get back to my daily routine that I haven’t had a moment to really sit down & relax. Last week was insane, regardless of the 4-day work week & the heat isn’t helping. So honestly overall I feel tons better but feeling frazzled in a lot areas of my life right now.
I had a fibroid removed from my right breast on May 28th for those new readers (Hi!) & it’s still very sensitive. My right arm has been hurting me ever since & it still hurts. Not so much pain but a straining feeling like I’m on a weight machine pushing up weights that are too heavy for me. I’m a righty but I usually drive with my left hand so that’s a plus. All the muscles are connected which could be the culprit. It doesn’t help that I type all day long at my job. Time is what I need. The surgeon did do a good job; I don’t think I’m going to have much of a scar. I got enough scars I think. I also will admit I’m struggling on giving up all caffeine. I’ve been good so far giving up coffee, but I’m dragging. I’ve had some tea & some soda. This is hard. I didn’t think I was addicted to coffee but I was. Is their an A.A.A. for coffee-drinkers? No seriously is there???
I don’t feel overwhelmed, *knock on wood* but I just feel that the next 6 months are going to bring some serious challenges, changes, & decisions. I somehow need to get ready. It’s like I have to prepare for things. But…how can you prepare for the definitely coming unknown? It’s making my head spin. What will be first? A boyfriend? A new job? The apartment I so desperately want? A real vacation? Who knows…I’ll take it as I come but I want to be ready for it. Is that wrong? I need to continue on the feeling better part first…hopefully the mental wellness will catch-up then.
It’s a hard job, life…but someone’s gotta do it.
In other news I did get tagged by one of my awesome blogger friends Tess @ Quintessentially Quirkness to do a series of questions, so I gotta do it! =) If anyone wants to do these questions…by all means. =)
