I'm still pretty tender and have had a wicked face and headache everyday since the procedure. Learning how to cope with and manage this pain has given me a run for my money and has challenged my coping skills too...what works for my body is not working for my head and often I'm left fighting the tears of the pain. I was given a narcotic after the procedure and although it helped with the pain, the side effects are just too much so I'm trying to take myself off it and am struggling too.
I've been very grateful for the break and the time to heal, but I'm hoping that maybe getting back to my routine of the Facebook page and coming here might help me work things along. I will do my best as I am able but I may need some extra ME Days to help me through it. I will work through this and it may take some time...I appreciate your patience.
I'd like to say thank you for all the thoughts wishes and prayers...each has felt like a big warm hug and it's greatly appreciated and needed too...HUGS back to you.
For my daughter Emily...I can't thank you enough for all you've done to keep the page going while I recovered. You've seen me through every step from beginning to now, and to share it with you means a lot to me. Thank you babe! xo
Take good care of you and please...take the time to soothe yourself and your pain when you need it. It's okay to let your world come to a stop till you can manage better...you and your needs are important... and they require your time and your attention too...so please...take the time for you and do what you need to help yourself through. All I ask is that you do it without leaving scars behind.
bye for now
