Just thinking... 12-08-2011 - 05:00 PM
I was thinking about how far I have come since surgery and I have a few thoughts...

--I never realized how much my endo controlled my life...
--I never realized how much my female reproductive system controlled my life...
--I never quite realized the impact it had on family and friends...
--I never realized just how bad things had gotten...

I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful friend come over after work last Friday night and we had a great time just talking and laughing...she asked about how 'things' are after surgery. As I started to tell her about how great I am feeling and how much energy I have, it hit me...I mean, REALLY HIT ME! I FEEL AMAZING! Sure, not every day is wonderful but it is pretty close! Because I am not in constant pain, I have energy. I feel better physically so I feel better emotionally! I can get up, goto the store, do laundry, clean, get prettied up, goto dinner, hang out and enjoy myself, get home w/my husband and 'fool around' go to bed and do it all again the next day! I don't have to choose just one of those each day because that is all my body will allow me to do! How wonderful is that?!?!?!?!

I suppose I could look back and say to myself that I should have done it long ago...I am just old enough and wise enough to know that I needed to get to the 'right' place to finally make the choice to have it all removed. Having it done earlier might have caused second guessing. I did what I needed to do, when I needed to do it. That is the only advice I could truly give...listen to yourself and do what is right for you when it is right for you. Believe in yourself. Listen to yourself. Know when you make the choice, it is the right one for you.

At this time...I am done for the night. I think I am going to enjoy a nice hot bath, put on some comfy pj's, crawl into bed and read for awhile!

As always, wishing only the best to all of my sisters! God bless!
