It is always amazing to me that time can get away from me. As I am building up strength and stamina, I am finding the energy I have makes me want to do more. And yet, I have limitations as my body is still in recuperating mode.
Surgery really wipes a lot out of you in so many more ways than just the physical part. Emotionally I am more raw than expected. I find my emotions, especially the ones that make me cry, are so close to the surface. And it is embarrassing at times to cry so much. Yet there is a release too in allowing those emotions to get out. If I keep them bottled up inside, they are more damaging than to let the tears flow.
