I don't want to be better yet, am I crazy?

I had been kinda looking forward to taking time off of life and commitments with a good excuse for a month or so, and feel kinda gypped. Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful that I've had such an easy recovery - but darnnit, I wanted to be pampered

I'm just not one to allow others to take care of me unless I really need it. So, aside from help with lifting heavy stuff and taking a nap in the afternoons, I've been pretty much back at full speed for the past couple of weeks.

Even now, a year and a half later, I think back to the first few weeks post-op with warm feelings. I spent most of it by myself, but it just seemed "warm and fuzzy". There was a feeling of nesting and of relaxation.

Then, we heal and go back to life as usual.

has any body skin or face change like it not as soft as it was before your operation. I but lotion on all the time but doesn't fell like it did before my operation.

Your not alone! Im 6 weeks post op tomorrow and this is the first time in my married life my husband has done ANYTHING around the house. His mother lived with us when the kids were growing up so she did a lot, hes never had to do a thing. He did it all willingly for the first 4 weeks, but now is starting to give me that .. sigh.. and "i will do it when i get back from the golf store stuff"... so Im back to doing it all myself. Kids too,, they were here last night for pizza, and 2 weeks ago my daughter and daugther in law cleaned up the kitchen after dinner...last night... oops.. gotta watch Wheel Of Fortune! Its not so much that i dont want to get better,, but i wish there more division of labor than there is.

When i was recovering and home from work for just 2 weeks, it was the first time in my life that I (and all my family and friends) expected nothing from me, and were all pitching in to help and gave me special attention. It was VERY nice!

I wanted to go back to work, and things have continued to go well, but I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy all the pampering and attention. Now it is just back to everyone expecting tons from me, and me being super busy trying to please everyone.

I think I really blew it when i didn't take 4 weeks off like everyone else. Hmmmmm.....????
