For those of you who don't know, all my blog post titles have been lyrics from whatever random song I have stuck in my head. Sometimes it means something; sometimes it doesn't. Eddie got some great advice once that's stuck with me for a long time: "Don't make it out to be more than what it is."
So here's the latest news with regards to my medical condition:
I'll be getting a shot of Lupron in the next couple of days. I'll be in a medically induced menopause for three months to calm my endometriosis down. In about 8 weeks, I'm going to have another Laparoscopy, this time done by Dr. Camran Nezhat. I'll be down for at least 8 weeks after that, trying to avoid giving myself a hernia.
I'm really trying to remain hopeful that this will be the last surgery. This time around has been so much harder on me mentally and emotionally. I've never been through anything like this last year and my mental resources are absolutely sapped. So if you feel like getting me a present, get me something from Lush or Vosges! (I need chocolate and pampering to build up my serotonin levels.)
I'm on edge most of the time, anxious, scared. My social filters are most certainly lacking. I say things I wouldn't normally say and act out of character. It doesn't take much to make me cry or rather it seems like everything in my life right now is really traumatic so maybe I have a good reason for bursting into tears!
Essentially, what this all means is I'm going to be out of commission for a few months. I won't be in the shop, my mobility is limited because of the chronic pain, and I'm not driving.
I greatly appreciate the e-cards, emails, and visits. Please, if you'd like to come visit me, drop me a line and we'll set up some time.
