Taking a moment to breath

Yesterday I stayed home with my daughter. I just wanted to be close to someone all day. Today I am taking her to school and spending some time alone. I am trying to accomindate my emotions instead of bottling them up and at the same time trying to have some control.

Work was the hardest thing. I made it a point to express to the management team I didnt want anyone else in my business. I want to go to work and forget for a while. I dont want the classic "oh I am so sorry, how are you?" Most times people dont really understand and I dont want the questions. A big deal was made of my hysterectomy...I dont want nor need the drama with this.

I wont even let DH tell his family yet. He understands why though. I just dont want them worrying when we dont know anything definite. His mom lost his dad to cancer and currently his uncle has cancer so the family doesnt need the extra case until more is known. Plus they were so rude about my hyst, I kept getting you need to get over it! I dont need to hear that right now. Its bad enough I have put this burden on my own parents.

I took three days off from work to digest some of this, find my strength and recover from the bleeding. I feel more rested and think I am ready to go back to work and move on from the shock. I have been through the angry stage, the denial stage I have yet to face the loose it break down and cry stage...but I am sure being alone all day will free me up for that LOL.

Thanks for listening to me rattle on I will be glad when next friday gets here so I can get my barrings and figure out where I go next.
